Happy Holidays To ALL!!! (and a way to get $1.00 off of your childs next haircut)

OK, so I am going to mix a little holiday message with a little business message!

First of all, HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of you who celebrate this time of year! Whatever it is Chanukah, Chrismas, Kwanza, or something I haven't heard of! Have a wonderful day!

With all of the crazy concerns we have nowadays, if you have family, friends, or both, a warm place to stay and food to eat, you have to be thankful! Not only do I have all of that, I have my wonderful customers who I can honestly say I look forward to seeing every day.

I also have the people from all over the world who happen upon my blog and read it...HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you too!

And now some business...Bring in or email me a photo of your child and I will take $1.00 off of their next haircut.

See you soon, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Why Come to Me?

I have been thinking about it for awhile now, a bit of a continuation to my post about people coming to me from all over. Here I am pretty much in the middle of Riverdale, part of the wonderful but much maligned Bronx. Actually in the middle of my target area. Just off the Henry Hudson. Are you coming from Manhattan? Are you coming from Westchester? I am so easy to get to!

How many people come to me from all over New York City? How many come for my 30 plus years of experience, my work with autistic kids, my love of what I do.

I grew up in Inwood. I loved it there. Spent much of my younger life hanging around the Nagle avenue YW YWHA. I know the area and I know the people! A quick jump on the 7 bus, and you come right to my store! A ride on the #1 train with a transfer to the 7 bus if that is easier, and here you are! The 10 bus stops nearby as well!

How many come from Monsey, and other areas you would not expect? Larchmont, Scarsdale, Orange county! I can't believe it myself!

Why? Aside from my experience, I have a small child friendly store, with a Thomas the Tank Engine play table to play with anytime, even if you are not getting a haircut! Why would someone from the upper west side, or even Chelsea opt to come all the way to me with all of the choices around? We only do one child at a time. you get ALL of my attention. YOU ARE WHAT MATTERS TO ME.

And my blog and website...people read them from ALL OVER the world!

Also, I have some pretty decent toys, at pretty decent prices, so please, give us a try at Someplace Special. Call and make an appointment, try not to just walk in because we are very busy, and I will be just thrilled to see you!

No appointment needed for toy buying! Save on shipping, shop locally!

See you soon!

We Have a Pretty Cool Selection of Gifts Right Now!


The video shoot for the channel 11 morning show with Tiffany McElroy went very well on Tuesday! I can't wait to see how it comes out. As soon as I know when it will be on, I'll let you know. I had help from a few customers and neighbors and that made me feel very good. One of the things that has made me love my work so much is the fact that so many of my customers, in fact 99.99% of them are a pleasure to work with! How lucky can I be!

I want to remind you all that I have a nice selection of gifts in the store right now and It would be great if you could do a little bit of your holiday shopping with me. Imagine not having to get into a car and drive far, or spend hours searching the internet for what you want! Maybe I have it, maybe it is right in your backyard. Come take a look and be pleasantly surprised.

Right now, my biggest seller is my NYC transit authority approved MTA wooden trains that fit on the Thomas and Brio tracks. And you thought you had to go downtown to the Transit Museum to get them! I'll even mail them to you, and you can pay with a credit card or paypal. If you are interested, come in or give me a call. I have the whole line!

I also want to say that you can look me up on Facebook and join my group. At some point I will start posting contests and news that you can only find there.

Hope your Thanksgiving was GREAT!
