Moon Marble Company Bonner Springs, KS August 2015
Last summer's trip across Kansas included a stop at the Moon Marble Company in Bonner Springs, KS. We attended a short demonstration on how hand-made marbles are formed. It was interesting, but not at all what I expected.

The demonstration area consisted of a small section of bleachers for spectators to sit and watch an employee melt a glass rod and form one small marble.
The gift shop in front of the demonstration area was packed with replicas of vintage games, marbles, and trinkets. Yes, it was a tourist trip, but a fun stop, too.
