Check out the Christmas Library sometime ... lots of articles. The Videos are good. Wander through the photo albums and blogs. Don't forget the Merry Podcasts! There's just endless stuff to explore. And that's just on MMC. Then there are all the sister websites of the Merry Network. Exploring everything would be a new hobby!

I agree!! :/ They said they get a very limited supply and there's a lot of collectors around here, so once it's gone it's gone so they try not to put it out too early. Hopefully the girl just didn't know what she was talking about!
