I just noticed them on the list of vendors for IDEA. I'm definitely going to have to check them out.

Wow wow wow! I think I was drooling the entire time I was in the store!

My dd's birthday is coming up and we were going to order a bunch of stuff like this but now we can get it in town! Save on shipping! I'm thrilled!!

And I didn't realize that the owner and I are acquainted through church. Super cool!

I'm looking forward to spending some serious dough at the store too. I really want them to succeed. It's just what Fairbanks has needed. I'm stoked that I can use our allotment there too.

does anyone know why we got busted in our Ongoing chat? I think I am losing my interest in MDC maybe we should start a Yahoo group that can discuss "Things concerning Alaskan Mommas". Ack I will probably get my hand slapped for posting this anyways, or get banned. Can take away my birthday or PFD.


HHHaa I had to look at this thread cause I didnt read it all the way and say New FBX toy store. umm I was thinking that castle store on the steese? lol thats not what you all are talking about. I need to get some fun artsy stuff for Ds would this be a good place to go, other than Joanns and Micheal?

penelope,
s'aright.. I figured that you probably had multiple strings open at once. I do that all the time. I'm glad you're finding stuff to like about IDEA. My student is only in second grade this year so we haven't begun taking advantage of so many of the different things they offer. The Galena school opportunity sounds interesting.. even if I have a hard time imagining how different life will be for me when he's old enough to handle going on a plane to a far away place without his parents.

So they are a lot stricter on purchases? That's funny because they always make a big deal about how they are as loose as they can be while still staying within the state regulations. I've often wondered if that was really true or if other schools found ways of being even more easy going about stuff.

Oh my gosh, that store rocks my socks. lol! The kids and I went there last week and I am loving it. We purchased some modeling Bees Wax. Which is soo much fun and was unavailable in town. I am pumped, and hope that Fbx supports them. :
