I visited Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics today. My better half had already visited for a board game Meetup but I wanted to see it for myself.
All I can say is wow.
Other game shops I have been to pale in comparison. Located in Lacey, this game store is a hometown gem that seems to have grown bigger and better over the years. This place is huge–7,000 square feet!–with impressive inventory in multiple categories, including the biggest selection of Funko Pop I have ever seen. I had no idea there were so many! And the vibe was just right. This is a friendly place where all are welcome and it seemed like a great place to spend an afternoon–and the nearly 1000 5-star reviews on Facebook support this assessment. Gabi herself stopped to ask me if I needed help. (Be sure to read her amazing story.) There are two levels. Downstairs you’ll find games, toys, models, paint, collectibles, comics, graphic novels and other books. Upstairs there are rows of tables for playing games. There are also games that you can play so you can try before you buy.
Check out their Facebook page for upcoming events. And stop by and see for yourself.

Today’s weather: The weather alternated between fine and terrible today. It felt colder than it was (40s) because of the 20ish MPH winds in the morning that took down several large branches in our yard and on our street. When we were out and about it was fine and then not and then fine again. Shortly after we got home we had hail. It was enough to make you say, “What the hail!”
