November 29, 2014. Picked up some items today.. will get on the site by tonight. Have a great weekend.
November 26, 2014. - Countdown to Christmas has started! I added the Christmas Countdown on the Home page.. Not as cool as the one I have been using for many years.. but the company that made that one is out of business.. It was really hard to find a banner size one.. this one will have to do. It doesn't even say "Until Christmas". If anyone knows of a better one, please let me know
I usually wait to add any Christmas references until after Thanksgiving.. but sales started taking off the first weekend of November.. so figured I better get that on there and also, I added the shipping deadline info on the How To Order page. It has been busy here at TimeWarp. We got our first SNOW of the season today.. We have about 6" on the ground and expect a bit more when this is done by tomorrow morning. It's that heavy wet snow.. that looks so nice on the trees but heavy to shovel and knocks down power lines.. so far so good, though.
We are having Thanksgiving Dinner here in the Catskills this year.. so no traveling for us - Nice and Easy. We hope to find more treasures this weekend.. not sure where.. but I know there are toys out there waiting for us to buy them!
Hope you all have a Great Thanksgiving.

We drove about 460 miles down to Virginia to meet the dealer we buy from every year. He has awesome stuff and always gives us good deals. He checks everything and is meticulous in his descriptions. So it makes my job easier. We purchased a bunch of great items.. left there. drove back north for 2.5 hr. Stayed overnight in Gettysburg PA..
The next morning (today), we went to a 9am Estate Auction 20 minutes away in Maryland. They had some MORE great 1950s and 1960s toys..

Here is what our site looked like in 1999 (3 yrs. after we started it!). You can also click on the links to other pages. Very basic site back then. Remember, we had dial up SLOW service back then.. and the graphics software was very limited. https://web.archive.org/web/19990208020911/http://www.timewarptoys.com/ Below is a pic of old logo vs. New logo
Also, BIG NEWS >> Our daughter, Andrea is an 80s kid.. and we have decided to put an '80s Toys For Sale' page on my website.

January 13, 2014 - Picked up a few items yesterday. Mint Unused.. Never seen this before: Secret Bullet Belt 1950s Cowboy Toy. Listed on Cowboy & Toys3 pg. Also a CSA Civil War Holster by Marx. A few other things - check Toys1, Misc & Cartoon page.
January 11, 2014 - Added the last of the Vintage 1950s Monkey Collection on the Toys1 pg. That is all that is left of the collection! They are all different & unique! Heading out tomorrow to search for toys. I have some items coming in that I purchased through email from a site visitor.. hopefully will get the items on Monday. Check Back!
January 5, 2014 - We went to an Estate Auction last night.. picked up some nice items. Everything is on the site now. (Sneak Peak Photos below)..
But here is an interesting thing I have never seen: I found this printed on one of the 60s toys, by the game manufacturer (made in Italy). Have never seen this type of patent notice before. "Patented In The Most Important Countries."

LOTS of Snow here in the Catskill Mtns. NY! Bitter Temps make it worse since roads treated with salt aren't effective at temps under 15 degrees. Luckily we don't live too far from the Post Office..so can still ship. We have an auction to go to this weekend - so check back! We never know WHAT we will find!
Meanwhile, we are running a January Sale on our site! 15% off your total purchase will be automatically deducted in our fancy shopping cart! And as always, orders $125 or over are Shipped FREE in the USA. And we always offer 100% Satisfaction Guarantee or your money back! Enjoy!
Hello 2014! Wishing all our site visitors & customers a Safe & Excellent New Year!
