In the Village of Pinckney, Michigan on Main St, there is this cute little shop/cafe that just opened earlier this year called D20 Cafe. They buy and sell collectable card games, like Magic; The Gathering, Pokemon, Yugi-Oh!, and others, along with gaming accessories, like card sleeves, playmats, and loose dice. They also buy and sell old video games and consoles, collectable and vintage toys, and they welcome consignment from local crafters and artists. The cool thing about this shop is that you can get coffee (Ann Arbor’s own Zingerman’s coffee, yum!), Italian Soda, other drinks, and snacks, hang out and play games for as long as you like (as long as they are open, anyway). They also have scheduled events, like “Friday night Magic” and other tournaments. There is also an adorable resident kitty named Ajani.
The owners are husband and wife, John and Jess, and they enjoy playing various games, especially MTG, with their customers and are very friendly, outgoing people. I play these games also, but very rarely. It really depends on my mood, but I enjoy watching others play. I like to go there with my husband and youngest son (still trying to get my eldest son and daughter there) and I always have my crochet with me. During one of the visits I was working on a dragon scale dice bag for my husband, when Jess told me that they take consignment and is interested in me making dice bags for the shop in the 5 colors from MTG, so of course I said sure! On Sunday I finally picked up some Red Heart SuperSaver in red, green, blue, white, and black and started on making a small inventory of bags. I’m doing small and large double drawstring pouches in each single color and large double drawstring pouches in a 2-color spiral. In my initial batch of bags, I’m making 5 small and 5 large in single colors, and 10 2-color spiral large bags in the Ravnica Block Guilds colors. So far I have blue and green done.
