    Welcome to Susan’s!  We invite you to come for books, toys, candy, cookies, coffee, and friendship.  Bring your kids to our LEGO play room and in our toy area!  We want kids to come into our store, touch and play with toys everywhere, and make memories!   Educational activities, crafts, science and building projects, and toys you won’t find very many places.  Quality.  Educational.  And, of course, fun!!!

    We also invite you to come visit our used bookstore.  History, biographies, fiction, children, mysteries, westerns, cookbooks, sports, religious books, and more.  Join Susan’s used bookstore club for $50/year per family.  You can use the used bookstore as your personal library.  We also have a desire to get books into as many homes throughout our area as possible.  We believe that a book given in the daytime may change a life when read at midnight.  For information on helping us raise money and on our book give-away program follow this link: giving books away.

    You’ll have to pick some favorite candy while you’re here – packaged into fun bags and candy jars. Gummi dinosaurs, butterflies, centipedes, bookworms, flowers, airplanes.  Chocolate covered coffee beans.  Building block candy that look like Legos.  Huge lollipops.  Everything that makes a smile.

    Have a beautiful day!  Life is so short…only one grain of sand can make it through the sand timer per moment.  Let’s make a conscious effort to notice each piece as it goes through.  Each moment.  Our gift.  Susan
