Another year....another "it's way past time to update the website blurb".  Yes...we're still here.  And, yes, the website is still active.  Although this blurb doesn't change that much, rest assured our inventory certainly does.  So be sure to stop by from time to time to determine what's in stock.  We suspect that not that many people are reading this, but, STILL, we'd like let those of you that our new to our site a bit about who we are.  We' buy and sell...and wish 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.

An update on the Duane Smailus collection. Duane is 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.  He's been selling his 13 year collection of vintage 1964 -1980s, 12" GI Joe and his foreign cousins (Palitoy, Ceji, Falcon, Geyper Man, Action Joe, etc).  Duane was (and still is in his own way) a serious collector - he 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 as hard to find foreign sets.  Since no takers were available to purchase his collection as a whole (and believe us when we tell you that there were probably less than a handful that could have come up with that much money - his collection is that good), Duane's started parting out the collection.  Even if you're not interested in a purchase, stop by anyway for a look of some rare items:

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
