PIQUA — The Friends of the Piqua Public Library will begin their 2014 Library Lounge Series with “Games People Play” on Thursday, March 20 at 7 p.m. at the Piqua Public Library.
Melissa Cairns, owner of Cairns Toys in Tipp City, and her daughter Kristy Reis, owner of SWEET by Kristy, will present some of their favorite board games and show how to play them. Kristy also will tell about her cupcake business and share samples of her best treats.
Cairns Toys has been a small, locally owned business for 30 years. It started as Cairns Collectibles in 1983, specializing in collectible bears and stuffed animals, and became Cairns Toys in 2007, after it began selling more toys. It takes pride in being a family-friendly and happy place with a knowledgeable staff and toys and games for every age. Cairns Toys was chosen the Best Toy Store in the 2014 Best of Ohio Reader’s Ballot sponsored by Ohio Magazine.
SWEET is a boutique bakery and candy store specializing in gourmet cupcakes, cookies, fudge, hand-made confections, and nostalgic candies. Kristy Reis’ baked goods and confections are made from scratch daily using the finest ingredients. SWEET by Kristy was chosen as the best place for cupcakes in 2013 on ActiveDayton.com. The business is located adjacent to Cairns Toys on Main Street in Tipp City.
Join us for a fun evening of learning how to play some new board games, and of being introduced to some old classics. The program is free and open to the public.
