Saturday March 25, 2017 - 11pm. We are home from the auction down in Pennsylvania. Weather was good. Nice crowd. I got just about everything I bid on. Some nice early items! And some nice surprises. Below are sneak peak photos, remember - all is first come, first serve through the website BUY Button. I don't post sneak peak photos on Facebook anymore due to all the messages about pricing and trying to buy before items are even listed.. which really wouldn't be fair. SO... will be working on listing all tomorrow. I hope to have items listed for sale on the site by the afternoon.
Friday, March 24, 2017 - Heading to an estate auction early tomorrow morning. There are toys! Hope we come home with some treasures! Will update tomorrow afternoon.
UPDATE>> 7:15pm All is on the website. Remember prices are 25% off this month - the discounted total will show in the shopping cart.
March 19, 2017 - Met a really nice gentleman today.. about 1.5 hr. away. He has some great collection. MANY items from when he was a kid. Everything in just about perfect condition and CLEAN. I bought some fabulous items from him.. will be posting all day today. Hope to get items uploaded onto the site by tonight sometime. Check Toys1, Toys3, Cartoons, Space, TV/Movies, Vehicles & Misc. pages. Some nice rare items here!
March 18, 2017 - Sold my Rumbler Chopper Bike today. Lucky thing, someone who lives about 1/2 an hour away saw it on my site, called me and we met 1/2 way - over by Woodstock. YEA! I love when I don't have to ship LARGE items. It has gotten so expensive! SO, I do buy large cool items.. and offer local pickup. Works well.. and will ship, but may charge a fee depending where it is going. Got some more snow here today.. (enough already-lol).
Tomorrow, we are going about 1.5 hr away to meet someone that has toys to sell.. they emailed me and will see what he has, hopefully will get a few neat things for the site. Fingers crossed!

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!
