“Finding that special connection to a time when there maybe wasn’t all of this negativity in people’s lives could be something really important and really special,” added Ron Haines, co-owner of Totally Nostalgic Toycade.

There is something for everyone, kids and adults alike, at Columbiana’s brand new business.

Totally Nostalgic Toycade opened earlier this month, just in time for the holiday season. Offering a variety of vintage old school toys with younger generation items mixed into the collection.

“Maybe you come and get something for your kid but find something for yourself,” said Randi Haines, co-owner of Totally Nostalgic Toycade. “It’s just exciting to relive your childhood but also to find things that you might not see elsewhere.”

The name of the store is apt because of the number of childhood memories that arise when you walk around the toy store. They sell Teenage Ninja Turtles, X-men, Star Wars, Barbie, and Cabbage Patch Dolls, to name a few.

“Finding that special connection to a time when there maybe wasn’t all of this negativity in people’s lives could be something really important and really special,” added Ron Haines, co-owner of Totally Nostalgic Toycade.

Owners Ron and Randi Haines both quit their day jobs to pursue this dream. They say you shouldn’t hesitate to start a business out of passion.

“It’s terrifying but definitely worth doing it,” Ron said. “It’s gratifying,” Randi added. “I wouldn’t go back to doing what I did before,” Ron said.

“We want to work for ourselves, improve ourselves and also get to know the community,” Randi said. The store participates in Toys for Tots to get involved in the community.

“I wanted to do something that is more focused on helping people instead of helping another business make money,” Ron added.

The Gaines hope to build a full-scale arcade in the store in the years to come as they continue to grow their business.
