So, I did some research on the Whirl-Away Store Display I picked up the other night, and it was sold in the 1950s by the company RL Alberts & Son.

Here is the description the inventor provided : "There is always a need for an inexpensive device which will challenge the skill of or otherwise amuse a child so as to occupy his time and provide him with pleasant recreation. The value of such a device is further enhanced if it provides physical action and exercise as well as requiring some measure of skill since growing children seek an outlet for large amounts of energy."

August 26, 2016 > Heading to an auction late Sunday.. will be posting finds Sunday night.
Tomorrow is our Annual Town Event SHANDAKEN DAY. Here in our hometown in the heart of the Catskill Mtns., Shandaken NY. Weather looks great, There will be live music all day, games, vendors and great food. I will be helping in the parking lot. I sure love this town.. guess that's why I love my job here as the Shandaken Town Clerk! (My second term), so during the week & sometimes on weekends... my town duties take precedence. But fear not, we did get to an auction the other night.. and will be posting those items, with any new finds - on Sunday. Have a great weekend!
And if you are traveling in the Catskills, on Rt. 28 in Big Indian, stop by our Shandaken Day event - at Big Indian Park.
Update> 4:45. All on website! - August 21, 2016 - We are back from our buying trip! Went up by Finger Lake region of NY about 4 hrs away. Met up with some dealers we know.. one had some great old store stock items, never opened. Went to some flea markets and shops. A VERY nice haul, if I do say so myself. lol.
Our oldest grand daughter (14 yr), helped me sort and set up, so much faster and easier.. We have TWO sets of Flintstones Building Boulders - minty in really nice boxes - Faith helped me check, count, sort and arrange them all neatly in each box.. (that took awhile). She is the best! Here are some sneak peak pics, will get all on site by this afternoon. OH! I found ANOTHER Marvin Glass Toy - that I didn't know about (will put in my updated book), The Phony Baloney Puzzle by Parker Brothers 1970. I saw his logo.. there is was! I had no clue. Awesome!
August 18, 2016 - Yea, the week is almost over and we can seriously go out toy hunting! We are leaving very early Saturday morning.. and heading to north western NY area to hit a huge flea market.. and stay over up in Rochester, to go to more shops and flea markets. I also plan to stop by the Strong House of Play Museum (amazing place), to show them my advance copy of my book on Marvin Glass toys. The ladies at the museum there were extremely helpful with my research.. in digging up some old ads and history of Marvin Glass & Associates. They plan to sell my book there in the gift shop, when it is released in October. So it may be an exiting weekend!
Also, in mid June, my computer tech family friend suggested a cool new PHP software for my website, that would enable me to EASILY add or delete items off the website or just mark "Sold" - from any computer device/cell phone/tablet. Plus no more long hours spent editing photos, inserting shopping cart html, etc. All would be easy to input in pre programmed fields! I would actually log in from anywhere on the PHP software he would put on my host server. Well, we enabled it at the end of June, and I just love it. At the beginning, we didn't move all the older inventory to the new file, and I am just making progress in moving items into the new software.
You will notice some older items moving into the new inventory areas to the top of each section, don't be alarmed! lol. I am also SLASHING PRICES on the older inventory. This is not a museum.. haha. I want to sell it. IF you see an item that has been around awhile, make an offer. I want to sell, and make you happy .. Win/Win!
Check back for updates! I always update here before our facebook page.
August 14, 2016- Picked up a few items at a flea market today. Everything is listed on the website! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
UPDATE> All should be on website by 8pm. Check Toys1, Space, Cartoons, TV/Movies, Vehicles & Misc. pages.

August 6, 2016 - Headed out early to an Antique-Flea Market about 2 hrs away, up past Albany. Threatened to rain, but all ok! Found some nice dealers that had quite a few toys! YEA FOR US! Picked up some cool items, (I know, I always say that..but it's true!). I am very proud of "capturing" the Nauga Monster! MY FIRST!! Twenty years looking for one. I would keep him, but someone will want him more than me, I guess.
These were made in the late 1960s to advertise the new Naugahyde material furniture, Invented by Uniroyal. In fact, this is one of the first ones, has the Uniroyal name AND dated 1967. WOWEE!! Naugahyde (what we now call 'Pleather', was "an artificial material to resemble leather made from fabric coated with a vinyl resin"). Once I found him, I was ready to go.. but I stuck around and found more treasures..Here is sneak peak. All items will be up soon..within the hour.
All items first come, first serve through the website.. I know it gets alittle crazy when I list.. and things sell fast. I go by time stamp of shopping cart email to determine the first come, first serve orders, So I keep it all fair. Sometimes I mess up.. an may list a $120 item for $20.. I do the pictures, shopping cart, etc. all myself.. and sometimes a keystroke may get missed..but customers understand and I haven't had any problems in 20 yrs.. so all is good. I also remove the items myself when they sell.. and may not get to it right away. But thanks to my new software 'product manager', I can mark items sold or deactivate from any computer or cell phone.. so that is a great headache saver!
Anyway, Thanks to you all for all your support over the yrs. ! We'll keep the toys coming! Today's finds: Check Toys1, Games, Hobbies, Misc., 1980s pages.
Update 8:43 pm >>ALL Items are on the website! August 5, 2016 - Last night we went to an auction over in Massachusetts.. about 3 hrs. away. Nice and organized one.. we were home by 11.

Check Toys1, Toys2, Space, Games, TV/Movies, Misc. & Vehicles pages. Enjoy!
Hope you all have a great weekend.

March 25, 2016 - So, yesterday we got up early, left he house at 6:30 am. We drove 2 hrs. down to New Jersey to register for an onsite Estate Sale there. We had to park in a central location - then at 9am, they list the address online. We were only 5 minutes away! so we scooted over there... and we were number 26 & 27. Not bad.. but very surprising! Since it supposedly was a "secret location".. someone must have leaked the info.. We were literally there at 9:04. But besides that.. we were happy to be on the list and in the 2nd group to get in the house (15 at a time). So, we got in the car and drove the 2 hrs back home.. Just to get up early this morning and do it all over again! It was so exciting.. first time I have done an estate sale where you registered like this. I was nervous and worried that items would be crappy or too high priced. .. or the group ahead of me would buy all the good stuff.. I didn't need to worry....
The house was a two story 1950s.. packed with items. Large room of toys.. they only let 7 people in at a time by the toys.. since there wasn't much room to move around. (Other household items too... but I stuck with the toys, naturally). It was fantastic.. they had some great stuff.. and I got everything I set my sights on. There were some Large Overpriced toys.. which I stayed away from. I got alot of great items that I have never seen before.. and some old favorites I haven't had in many years. Condition is great.. I just had a fantastic time! We were home by Noon! So I have sorted everything, checked & cleaned.. Took 3 hrs.. Still have to photograph individual items and list .. so I hope to have everything on the site by tomorrow sometime in afternoon.. I will update top of this page when all is on the site.. Also if items sell - after a big buying trip - I keep it on the site for a few days marked as SOLD - so you're not wondering if it is on the site yet or sold or what.. ENJOY! Click Photos to enlarge.

Last night while at our daughters, a woman emailed me that she had some older toys to sell.. she sent me some photos and even though I don't go out of my way to buy pre 1950s items, I could not resist these items! And - best of all - she lives in Maine.. and I could pick the items on the way home.. which I did this morning! win-win! (I love when things just fall into place). Nice OLD minty games which includes a 1905 Gypsy Fortune Telling Game by Milton Bradley and also a Beautiful 1955 Fisher Price Donald Duck! The 3 games are on the Games page & Donald is on Cartoons page. Also below is photo of our car (treasure trunk), when we arrived home.. what a great haul

I included it in my Marvin Glass book (coming out this September), but this is only the 2nd one I have had in 20 yrs. . so no photo available when I did the book - I had to pay the Rochester Toy Museum to take a photo for me of the one they had! So that is exciting.. and Today: I found a RARE 1950s Slinky Satellite Beanie - by James Industries. so awesome! Never have seen one. Can't find any on internet.. just an ad which I will show also below. Wow! What a fun business!

February 26, 2016 - Long week here with the crazy weather here in the Catskills NY.. We had torrential rain.over the last few days.. and it knocked out our Verizon land line. We have repair coming Monday! So, no land line at all until then. And to top it off, there is no cell service here in the Town of Shandaken.. not enough population I guess for the cell service companies. Last time this happened the repair man said that one of the boxes for wires on their pole had a squirrels nest in it and the rain saturated it an did something to the wires.. JEEZ. It's nice living in the country but sometimes a real pain! Don't get me started on how hard it is to get a repair ticket online.. I tried calling but was on hold for 25 minutes and then got disconnected! .But will have it fixed soon - I hope. Meanwhile.. we are going out Sunday looking for toys.. heading up towards Vermont. Will post photos of our finds.. (keeping fingers crossed!)
Packed up a big order this afternoon, all ready to ship tomorrow morning. I love to ship fast and pack well. I have plenty of bubble wrap and I am not afraid to use it! I have access to free clean boxes and bubble wrap.. It keeps my prices down and allows free shipping for orders over $125!

January 25, 2016 - All Fixed Now! Small glitch in my shopping cart.. seems like on 1/17 the USPS changed the name Standard Mail to "Retail Ground" well, until my cart techs (Cart32), fix this by adding the correct name to the pull down menu in my cart configuration.... it will not calculate the standard price shipping on orders.. IF you tried to order and you live far enough from NY State..for the price to be very high..by only showing Priority Mail, email me and I will adjust the price for you. thanks! Joyce

Boy did I get a shock while looking over the toys before the auction started.. I found a RARE Marvin Glass Toy - that won't be in my book.. (too late to add it).. but I will save it, for my updated book, (Schiffer usually offers to authors to do updated books after a year or two), Anyway it is the Penny Shooting Gallery Bank, I vaguely remember it. It is from 1968. All my research.. never saw it. but there it is, Marvin Glass's logo on the box. ACK!

Roads were good traffic was fine.. and thank goodness for xm radio! Listened to 60s and 70s tunes all the way! Of course, the toys were brought up toward end of auction.. so we had to sit there for 3 hrs.. watching & waiting - but its still fun and entertaining. My hubby brings a book to read and I watch movies on my kindle in between the toys.. he usually nudges me when they come up. So will be taking photos of items and listing all day today.. will get everything up on site by this afternoon.. I will update here when all is on. Here is a sneak peak:
January 1, 2016 - Hope you are all enjoying your holiday. Not much going on here today. We are gearing up for a road trip tomorrow to an estate sale a few hours away.
