This week, Kirby and Whitney Kerr, the founders and operators of Chicago based toy store Rotofugi, join Gary and Theresa in discussing the retail and gallery life. Just as their Abraham Lincoln logo would suggest, we get an honest and in-depth look into having run both a store and gallery for the past 13 years.

This week, Kirby and Whitney Kerr, the founders and operators of Chicago based toy store Rotofugi, join Gary and Theresa in discussing the retail and gallery life. Just as their Abraham Lincoln logo would suggest, we get an honest and in-depth look into having run both a store and gallery for the past 13 years. Discussed is their approach to inventory, the complexities of importing, the challenges of constant shipping increases, avid versus casual collectors, the importance of diversity, curating events, pop-up shops, producing toys, community building, and much more.
