Normally I don't post about store grand openings, but this is a mom-and-pop-owned store (who also owns the Standard 5&10 Ace in Laurel Village, SF), owned by a loyal Frisco Kids reader. They have lots of kids' craft kits (including a Pinewood Derby section for Cub Scouts), tool kits for kids, Tinkertoys and other kid toys.
Where: Marin Ace in Terra Linda (180 Merrydale, northern San Rafael, in Marin) When: February 10-12. What: Deals, discounts, giveaways, demos, raffles. Free Jelly Belly samples. 20-50% off housewares and everything else in the store. Lots of deals!
