This week I've been in Nevada, a friend of mine is opening an amazing toy shop Called" Little City Items" in Virginia City. She invited me up to spend a few days. and help set up the store. Pam knows everything there is to know about beautiful toys, she was, until a year ago when she sold up and headed for a new adventure, the owner of "The Ark" two stores in San-Francisco and one on Fourth street in Berkeley, all three stores were beautifully designed by her, as is her new store in Virginia City, with help and humor from her husband Jack who is an architect and sculptor. If you are in the area, it's about half an hour from Reno, the drive is spectacular, the history is fascinating and the view from Virginia City is out of this world. Oh, and just incase thats not incentive enough, next weekend they are holding the annual camel races, a tradition since 1960.
