Did I get your attention? No???? Okay, maybe the below will. I had a vey fruitful, though somewhat expensive day! Well, my truck broke down BIG TIME. That was the expensive part. The fruitful part was the goodies I found.
Ad on Craig’s List: Antique Toys: I have quite a few antique toys, if someone wants to come look and make me an offer on what they would like a partial list includes a Flash Gordon toy gun, Marx wind up taxi, large iron bus, a Mike Mulligan type steam shovel, many other toy pistols and pea shooters, old board games from the 30's....too much to list. I have been listing them one at a time, but this is getting tedious, and I would rather just pull them all out when some of you can come by.
Sooooo, that got my attention. I go by after work today (I also went to a private estate/garage sale today, more on that later). Hubby was heading to Bass Pro with the Son, so I was at loose ends.
Eh? It’s raining you say? No problem, have umbrella, will junk! Pouring buckets you say? Oh, well, what’s a little water.
So, you ask. Ya’ gonna tell us what you found? Okay….I will. :)
You want more you say?? This isn’t enough?
Okay, how about a Built-Rite cardboard house! Ok, you know I’m a miniaturist, so I’m going to love little houses. Needs the tabs put back in the slot, but what a find! NOT TORN!
Heavy Metal Soldier, just missing his gun – 1930’s probably, maybe as late as 40’s but doubt it. Still with some of the original paint.
I tried and I tried, but I couldn’t get a picture INSIDE the FotoReel. It’s a Lion Tamer! You turn the wheel (yes, it works) and you see 3D scenes of a man taming different big cats! This thing is old and in almost perfect condition. The turning wheel slips a little.
You are looking straight down on this. You turn the knob and it spins within itself. Not sure what it is called. The name escapes me. Old spinning top w/box – the box is torn on the backside but I have all the pieces.
WHEW! Nope, that’s not it, just all for today. I apologize for the quality of the pictures; I was trying to fry fish and take pictures at the same time.
If you see anything that interests you, please let me know. These will go up on Etsy soon (I hope – I’m behind on my listings). I ship worldwide and take PayPal.
I still have several more toy items I got today that I’m going to share with you and I REALLY want to go back again for some more that I didn’t get. But, after that purchase and the one I made at lunch today at the private estate/garage sale (pictures to follow soon), I need to SELL things, NOT purchase them! I’m BROKE. Not to mention all the repair work done to my truck today (sob).
