Marvel at these Christmas gifts
Spiderman, X-Men, Batman, Stars Wars and Star Trek are just some of the collectable figurines and action toys that you can purchase at Creative Treasures in Wynnum Central. They claim to be the only retailer outside America to have an extensive range of Marvel figurines. And these aren't your standard toy versions with some retailing over $200 making them perfect for the discerning collector.
There's also an extensive range of comic books from both the Marvel and DC stables with pristine and pre-loved copies of Phantom, Superman, Batman and a whole host of superheroes. The avid or passive collector will be in their element spending hours browsing the comic books and shelves of LP's.
Stuck on that Christmas gift idea for that special someone and you want it to be a bit different, maybe even quirky? Creative Treasures has everything you WON'T get at your standard Westfield Shopping Centre. Owners José Toussaint and Tom Keown will help you find that item you are looking for.
Contemporary crafts are on display from a range of local and Australian artists including a striking collection based on the Mexican Day of the Dead Festival 'Día de Muertos'.
