It's time to accept it - Kids Ink is getting older. In fact, we turn 30 this Saturday, May 7th. We're detemined to age like strong cheese or a powerful story - the more the better.
All day this Saturday, we'll have cookies to hand out to all our guests! (Until we run out, which could happen, but we have so many cookies I mean SO MANY.) We'll have displays set up, including our beloved train table in our front window, and we've also got our May Basket Construction Station stocked and ready for you to assemble a random surprise of beautiful kindness for someone in your life.
