Queen Dealer Spotlight:Scott and Milinda Griggs of Lindy's Trains

In 1975, Scott started his first model train business in his parents garage in Findlay, Ohio and his love for trains has continued through the years. Scott says his wife, Milinda, has been amazingly supportive through the years and is an unbelievably supportive and patient person and great wife. "I don't know how she has put up with me all of these years, but we recently celebrated our 25th anniversary. That's the story from when I started at eight years old to where I am now. I still really enjoy trains and just thoroughly enjoy the business and bringing happy train memories to new generations." 

Scott and Milinda have done everything from selling on EBay, going to train shows, having their own stores, even working in the corporate world – and now currently are in 11 antique malls and run a specialized train website, Their life is busy travelling and keeping all the antique booths stocked and organized. 

Melinda says, "We have been busy opening up a network of booths in the best Antique Malls we could find. We typically restock each booth two or three times per month and we have hundreds or thousands of items at each one. Every Mall we are in has at least 15,000 square feet and dozens or hundreds of other dealers, so come out to see the trains and toys, but plan on much more! Make a weekend out of it and follow the Georgia Antique Mall Trail – Lindy’s way."

Because they spend so much time traveling between their booths, they especially love that gas prices are going down!

They have thousands of model trains, die-cast cars and trucks, plastic model kits, Hess trucks, vintage toys, Nascar items, Department 56, ceramic buildings and other fun and collectible toys.
