We can't believe it's been a year since we've updated this blurb.  We suspect that not that many people are reading it as it is, but, STILL, we'd like to keep it a little more current in case you're new to our site and just happened to stumble across it.  We're still here - buying, selling...and wishing we could keep all the great things we come across. But, alas, we can't.  But we knew that going into this - we wouldn't be here with a website of products for sale if we could keep it all. So, we're happy to 'share'.  And, of course, we love the friendships gained along the way.

Speaking of friendships, one of our favorite customers...and someone we consider a friend even though we wouldn't know him if he passed us in a hallway...is selling his 13 year collection of vintage 1964 -1980s, 12" GI Joe and his foreign cousins (Palitoy, Ceji, Falcon, Geyper Man, Action Joe, etc).  Now, I tell you, Duane is a serious collector - he's amassed one of the premier GI Joe collections in the world.  He's a bit modest and wouldn't advertise it as such - but we suffer no such ailments.  He's a scientist by trade - and it shows in his attention to detail.  You'll see examples of very rare prototypes - as well hard to find foreign sets.  He's selling the collecton as a whole - and it's not for the squeamish.  But stop by anyway for a look:

We greatly appreciate your business and hope you enjoy browsing our site.  As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.  Don't forget - we also love working from want lists...so feel free to let us know what you are specifically looking for!

Thanks so much!!!

Christmas' Past

Our attempt to add a  "Christmas' Past" section hasn't come to fruition.  But we still 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!!

After being in business for over 20 years now (has it really been that long??!), we finally decided to officially develop and roll out our own website (we have been selling on eBay for over 8 years now but this is our first solo flight!). We know that shopping on the Internet is not always the rewarding experience it SHOULD be.  If you're like us, you're tired of the extremely poor customer service provided by over 90% of eBay 'sellers'.  The horror stories are never ending.  $300 purchases arriving in the mail wrapped in nothing more than butcher paper (with, no wonder, bend folds running through the middle); "mint" items arriving with rust, paint touch ups, etc; all original items arriving with repro boxes and/or parts; $700 ceramics arriving tossed into a box with absolutely nothing more than a thin piece of newspaper floating around the now damaged figures; items not arriving AT ALL...ouch!!  We are constantly striving to provide the opposite of that!  

The site is a "live" document....we intend it to continue to grow.   Please browse around and let us know what you think.  If you're of the mind, feel free to send us a want list.  We really miss the old days of direct interaction with people.  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
