Update- Saturday 5/20/17 Back from our excursion around central New York today. On route 20 just west of Cherry Valley we passed an Amish gent with his horse and buggy. Route 20 in my opinion is just about the most scenic drive in the state. We stopped in Cooperstown, not to see the Hall of Fame (done that, many times), but to visit a new Vintage Toys Store: TOYS OF FAME on Pioneer Street. They had a really nice selection and we picked up some cool item there..Drove back towards home here in Catskills.. met up with some pickers.. here is what we found.. Will be getting items on the site soon. And everything is 20% off today! yahoo. (sale price is reflected in shopping cart). Enjoy! -joyce

Monday - May 15, 2017>> 9:30 pm. We are home in the Catskills NY. We left our daughters, in Maine at 7am.. we normally would have been home at about 2:00.. but we got home at about 6:30 pm. The reason being.. we couldn't be like normal people - come straight home, relax, do laundry, get ready for the work week.. OH NO.. not us. We decided to take a side trip through New Hampshire on the way home! Which added about 4 hrs to our trip. lol. We went to some shops and flea markets, connected with some dealers who gave us some leads on toys.. and voila, here is what we found. see below.
Not sure when I will get the items on the site. (Tomorrow sometime). Since we got home, I have been packing the items that sold over the weekend so I can ship right out tomorrow. Orders take precedence.. we always ship fast! I will update on top of this page when all is listed on the site. Check back.. and have a great week!

Feb. 26, 2017 Sunday 9:15 pm. We are back from the auction. A lot of cool items! I will only be able to get one item on the site tonight - the coolest of the lot - 1959 Count Down Missile Control Set by Ideal. This is the first one I have had. MINT Condition. I could not get it to work.. although it looks brand new. Usually with the older electronics I apply direct current to the motor to get it going (sitting for over 50 yrs. you know), but to do that I have to unscrew the piece around the motor area.. and I really don't want to break anything. Selling as is, if you are handy - you can get it going. I will have that on the site in a few minutes. Here is a sneak peak of our goodies! Will get more on tomorrow.
I am working on an updated 2nd edition to my Marvin Glass book.. Came across this patent for a battery operated Frying Pan - Skillet. Someone commented that her mom had one.. but that is all the info I have. I need to know what toy company sold it and a Photo of one would be fantastic. If you have an info please email me -joyce

Here is sneak peak below. Also: the first photo is of our our Grand daughter, she helps me when we get back. I picked up the Thing Ding Robot game by Marvin Glass. Faith thought is was sooo funny that I couldn't remember the year it was made (not dated), and she had to look it up in my book. lol
Saturday, January 14, 2017. - Busy packing and shipping to get to post office before they close at noon. Any orders after 11am will go out Tuesday due to holiday on Monday.
We are leaving at 6am tomorrow to go down to Pennsylvania, to a huge flea market and meet up with some pickers we know down there. We never know what we will find - and it always is a fun day hunting for toys!
I just listed the very rare and cool "Fly It Yourself Helicopter" on sale from $185 to $150. for the weekend only. Thought I would try something new. This, as you may know was the FIRST Vertibird (made by Mattel in the early 70s). Well, this was designed by Marvin Glass.. and never made it in my book on his toys, since I had never seen one - and all my research never revealed it! SO, I was thrilled to find this at an auction last week. So, I really would like to approach the Rochester, NY HOUSE OF PLAY MUSEUM, and see if they will make a display honoring Marvin Glass and his contribution to the toy industry.. And I was thinking of donating the helicopter to get them started.. so last chance.. If anyone wants this .. here it is. Listed on Toys1 pg.
Monday - January 9, 2017 - Just In, Vintage Devil Halloween Costumes - Listed on Misc page!
NOON Sunday January 8, 2017. All our cool finds from yesterday's estate auction is listed on the site! Check Toys1, Toys2, Games, Vehicles & Misc. pages. Have a great day!
PS>>I love the idea that a complete painting can be done in 30 seconds or less.. that is why I always loved the Morris Katz paintings. Morris Katz holds the Guinness book or records title as the "Worlds Fastest Artist". I picked up these two oil paintings at yesterday's estate auction. Both framed & Signed. They are listed on the Miscellaneous page!
Saturday January 7, 2017. We left at 5am this morning from the Catskills, NY - to go to an estate auction 3.5 hours away down in Pennsylvania. They had some nice items. I got a great selection. The best thing, I bought the "You Fly It Helicopter" by Knickerbocker - this is an early version Vertibird! I thought it was very cool and had never seen one. SO, I put it on the chair next to me and glanced over, saw the logo & it was designed by MARVIN GLASS.. !! You should have seen my face. All my research, this never popped up. So this will be in my 2nd edition, updated book AMAZING TOYS OF MARVIN GLASS! Here is a sneak preview, I should have all on website for sale by Noon tomorrow! Enjoy
Wednesday, January 4, 2017 >> We have a winner! Thanks to all that submitted answers!
So, I am doing my totals for the year... and thought of a fun contest!
