Calico Toys and Games was a very successful business in St. Michaels, Maryland until Amazon became the craze, rents edged higher, and many locals forgot we were there. Many of the same locals and many tourists were very unhappy to find CTG had closed when last Christmas rolled around. All of the fun is back now in Easton, Maryland. Calico Toys & Games is now located at Le Hatchery Galleria at 125 Kemp Lane with its own double glass door entry on the Kemp Lane side of the building. Get the details HERE.
