While the pessimists are saying the designer toy scene is dead, new brick and mortar stores are popping up on both coasts. While Martian Toys expands to Philly, Gravy Toys is putting a bird on it and coming to Portland, OR. Located within Floating World Comics on NW Couch St., the microshop will open its proverbial doors on October 6 for a grand opening from 7PM-9PM. The store will be stocking goods from a ton of artists like Barely Human, Pop Soda, Rampage Toys, Deathcat Toys, Liverad Studio, Mixed Species, Cop A Squat Toys, Shirahama, Grody Shogun, Betty Turbo, Refreshment Toy, and Bwana Spoons.
But wait; there's more! A mini Good Gravy is coming to Williamsburg during NYCC. Bwana Spoons willl be brining toys, paintings, and merch to the pop-up located at 36 South 4th, D8 Brooklyn New York 11249. I hear they'll have cookies, so be there on Saturday, October 8 at 6PM for all the funzies.
