Well, what can we say? Our plans to upgrade this website have continually been derailed by silly things like processing orders, buying product, paying bills. Things like that. But fate has forced our hand. THE WEBSITE FUNCTIONALITY IS BROKEN. We're leaving it up for browsing purposes - but THE CART DOES NOT WORK. So if you see something you like, you'll have to write us. We DO plan on keeping the inventory on the site accurate - so if it's shown, we should have it. In the meantime, I have no choice but to actually dedicate time to our new website. Look forward to that in the upcoming weeks. Until then, stay safe. Louie (L & L Collectables)

What's it take to update the main text on our website? - nothing other than a world wide pandemic! Just letting everyone out there know we're still here. We're still processing and filling orders. Working away like we always have. Still buying if you have items available. Keep an eye on our website - we add new items every few days! And we hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this crazy time.

Oh, other than the pandemic, one thing that's significantly impacted our business is the inclusion of state sales tax on internet sales. While we completely disagree with congress's new stance on collecting sales tax from out-of-state buyers, there's nothing we can do about it but abide by their ruling. However, know that unlike eBay, Etsy, Amazon, we're considered small potatoes - and we do NOT have to collect state sales tax for any state other than California. That's right, if you're eyeing that item on eBay, you'll also find it here at our website - except THERE IS NO STATE SALES TAX added (other than California shipments).

Our Content & eBay Listings

The age of the internet...knowledge at our fingerprints.  There's nothing better than collectors being able to share/learn with fellow collectors and reduce misinformation floating around the web/eBay.  While we all benefit from a great Google search, there is a lot of time and energy....and personalization that we put into our listings.  As such, we ask:  If you are going to use the content from our website in your listings, PLEASE rewrite them.  We try to personalize our site and wholesale copying of our content is incredibly frustrating to us.  And, yes, we run into our "copy" all the time - we do recognize our own writing! 

Buying    Buying    Buying   &   Want Lists

We are always looking to buy quality vintage collections of Megos, Superheros, Monster, Aurora Models, Barbie, Star Wars, Beatles, Sci-Fi, Animation-Cartoon Characters, Disney, Lunchboxes, Spy (Bond, UNCLE), Star Trek, Personality & More.  Feel free to email list of picture/prices or call.  Save eBay fees - send your sales list to us first!  It's a win-win for all.

Some of our best items sell within minutes of being listed on our website....some items sell BEFORE they are ever listed on our website....How is that possible?????  Want Lists!!!...We love working with regular customers, and we have quite a few that have sent us specific "want lists".  If we get an item they are looking for, we can email them before it ever goes live on our site.  So, if you have a specific item(s) you are looking for, email us a detailed want list....and we'll do our best to fill it!!!

Christmas' Past

We love to celebrate "toys in their natural environment" and invite you to send in vintage pictures of yourself (or others - with their permission, of course!) opening up those toys of yesterday (heck, we'll even take birthday or other events of same!).  We think it's great fun to share our experiences - I believe most collectors are in this, at least partially, to relive their childhood.  Let's all share a bit! :)  With that thought, our first entry is from one of our customers who was so kind to share his Christmas photo - 'Tommy' circa 1966 or so, age 10 or 11...getting ready to begin a fun filled day with the Cartrights of Bonanza fame!

Thanks for your continued support!!

In the beginning - Oct 12, 2006

And our website was born!!!!  After being in business for over 20 years, we finally decided to officially develop and roll out our own website with the goal of making shopping on the Internet the rewarding experience it SHOULD be.  Great Customer Service - High Quality Items - Detailed Pictures & Descriptions - Careful Shipping!!!!  We're collectors we treat our customers how we'd like to be treated!

The site is a "live" document....we intend it to continue to grow.  We really miss the old days of direct interaction with people, and we actually have a phone number you call if you wish!! Oh, if the desire to purchase something strikes your fancy, feel free to purchase away! 

And feel free to tell a friend!

Best Regards,

Laura & Louie
