Welcome to our Website!
I've been collecting vintage and antique toys for over 30 years, and had an active brick and mortar shop for many years in the 1990s. Today we are completely web based. We started selling on Ebay back in 1998, shortly after they began, and continue to strive to retain a 100% feedback there. You will also find us on Etsy and Ebid. Over those years I've become somewhat knowledgeable on antique and vintage toys, and enjoy sharing my passion for collecting them, whether it be from meeting presentations to church groups, to written articles in publications in national magazines. We frequently do appraisals for local estates, museums, or even for individuals that found a box full of old toys in the attic.
The fun part of collecting is the "Hunt", be it on a Saturday morning shopping Yard Sales, at a Church Rummage Sale, or even scouring the shelves within a Goodwill Store or Consignment Shop. There is just something plain FUN about spending a few dollars, usually on a hunch and based on a wing and a prayer, to find out that what you bought was worth substantially more and sometimes even turned out to be an excellent investment!
The harder part of collecting is researching what you bought. With so many thousands of different collectibles out there, we found that much of our time was spent either paging through written price guides - which are usually outdated and inaccurate - or clicking through countless links to finally find those that would actually help. That is what this website is intended to be...a resource guide that will facilitate an easy method to value those hidden treasures that you've brought home.
I have made many great online friends over the past several years, and invite you to join our active group on Facebook. Its where we and others post what we've found, share the latest news, and even ask for help from others in identifying our collectibles. Better yet...we just have some good 'ol plain fun there. So peruse our website, then click on over and meet the rest of our group on Facebook, and join the fun.
Warmest Regards, and Good Hunting,
