The company is owned by Clint and Tony Gibble, owners of Tony Gibble Photography for the past 11 years, having been collecting toys for some time. They often wished there was a store that they could go to and actually “see” their childhood toys before purchasing them for their own collections. Hence the vision was born for The Tatted Toy Guys, a nickname given to them while on their toy hunting journeys.
The Tatted Toy Guys is a place where memories can be relived, shared and collections can be made.
Store hours vary because of commitments made for the owners’ wedding photography business. Anyone who wants more information about The Tatted Toy Guys may visit their Facebook page or text 717-615-7165.
