I seldom sell vintage toys but when I see them in a shop they do bring back fond memories of my own three, now grown daughters, playing carefree with their Fisher Price telephone that was the perfect pitch to change the television channel just at the moment when a touchdown was happening.
From trash to treasure, I appreciate all things vintage from the 30's to the 80's. Aside from the lure of the hunt, the best part is our customer's feedback. From success at finding the perfect gift to adding to ones collection all the stories are a joy to hear.
I enjoy the process...from combing the flea markets, shops, and house auctions...to researching the era...to inspecting and photographing...and on to describing and publishing my finds.
Vintage is the ultimate form of recycling. And in keeping with the green theme, I use recycled cardboard boxes and bubble wrap materials for parcelling and always carefully wrap breakables so that you can't feel the item and there is no movement in the package.
I'm pleased to share my findings in this internet online market and hope that you find something that you like. Please have a peak in all my shops, it's a combo of vintage, retro and nostalgic items gathered over the years. I'm always available to answer any querries.
