Welcome to the toy section, and I will be glad to work with you from across the hall. Ahh, I remember going through the exact thing you were. Being part of a commercial chain of stores, and being on the bottom rung. I am glad to see that other people have been able to flourish in the roles, despite bosses that keep you there. I know that I had to spend the better part of three years in one position, where I was constantly the employee of the month but they never sought to promote me. Make the most of your position there though, use it to make a lot of friends.

I get so frustrated when I do go to the toy store or toy department. I can never get what I am looking for and must turn to alternative markets. I see the new stuff on-line but have to be like a Vulture at the toy store to try and get it. And hanging out at the toy department is creepy enough when you're an adult but when you are there every day!? Example: All I want is the new Boba Fett with the coin from STar Wars (the all white one) and I don't want to shell out 20 dollars for something that is $6.99 retail. A major reason why I stopped collecting (the mark up). Plus it wasn't fun anymore. It was work. So my advice to you, Matt, is talk about the collectors vs. the ebay pirates. It's a shame that people have taken the fun of toy collecting and made it into hording, scalping, and back alley dealing. All for something that will never be played with or never get the chance to collect dust on my computer desk.
