Estate Collections

Been collecting for decades and decided to move? The thought of cleaning & sorting & packing and/or disposing of each item from a decades long collection is a bit daunting?

Inherit a collection you know nothing about? We're the perfect solution! Back in the "olden days", you'd have to pay someone to clean out a house and get it ready for sale. Let us help by PAYING YOU for the privilege of cleaning out the house. You won't have to touch a thing. We'll make an entire offer as-is. We'll bring our own packing materials and pack it all up! What are you waiting for?

Give us a call or send us an e-mail! Can't hurt!
Modern Statues

Modern Pop Culture Statues

The modern pop culture statue boom began in the late 80's with DC's introduction of the very limited release of the Kent Melton Batman and Joker statues for the 1989 Batman film (for us, it was love at first sight!) and a few years later DC would continue the theme with the Bowen designed Batman gargoyle statue! And then the flood gates opened up! There is no way to give you a complete, comprehensive list because there are soooo many great statues! Take a look to see some of the specific statue lines we're looking for:

Walt Disney Classics Collection - DC Direct - Sideshow - Hot Toys - Bowen Designs - Kent Melton and More!
Modern Toys - Post 1979

Modern Toys - Post 1979

Yes, we know. How can something that's as long ago as 40 years be considered "modern"? Well, you'll just have to forgive our old-timey outlook on things! We're old enough to have scoured the local Kay-bee Stores for the 2/$1.00 Kenner Star Wars clearance! So anything from this point on will always be "modern" to us! Here's just some of the toy lines we're looking for:

Modern Dolls - Post 1989

For the longest time, when we heard the term "American Girl", we thought solely of the moniker given to the first Bendable Leg Barbie doll of 1967 (why she's termed this is unknown to us). So, yes, we're a bit clueless about the modern doll era. But don’t let that stop you from contacting us with a collection to sell. We have sold a few American Girl dolls in our time. And we’re always looking to expand our selection and knowledge. Just be gentle with us! Some items we’re interested in:

Pop Culture

Pop Culture

Even if you've never seen a Charlie's Angels episode, you more than likely heard of Farrah if you were around in the 70's. She "broke through" and into the public consciousness. Pop culture to us are people, bands, TV Shows, Movies, and events that transcend their initial "media".

Coca Cola – I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing! We really should bring back the song because the world needs some singing (look it up on YouTube if you don’t know it!)! The Coca-cola trademark IS probably the most recognized symbol ever and we'd like to buy collection! Unfortunately, they over-produced most Coke stuff since the 90's so we really aren't looking for most Coke items post 1980.

Soda Pop
Coca-Cola - Squirt - Dr. Pepper - Diet Dr. Pepper - Fanta - 7-Up - Pepsi

Peanuts Gang (Snoopy)

Hungerford Vinyls - Statues - Posters - Paper Items - Figurines - Nodders - Advertising - Model Kits - Toys - Watches


Westerns - Cowboys

Hi-Yo Silver, away! We’re old enough to have watched and have fond memories of many westerns…even if our youngest barely knows who the Lone Ranger and Tonto are. During the golden age of Westerns, an unbelievable amount of merchandise was produced. If you have some fond memories you’re downsizing, contact us!

Hartlands - Marx Johnny West - Gabriel Lone Ranger & Tonto - Cap Guns - Games - Paper Items - Pins - Toys - Watches - Lunch Boxes - Advertising


Animation (Cartoon Folk)

Animated characters/cartoons have been a part of our culture since the advent of motion pictures and then televsion.

Led the way in terms of sound and feature length tales.

Warner Bros
Lent their talents more to animated shorts stock full of now-iconic zany characters - including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the rest of the gang.

Hanna Barbera
Introduced economical “budget minded" shows at the dawn of television - short on "beauty" but long on humor and fun.

Modern Era
While still available to kids, tailored more to an adult's sense of humor and satire (Simpsons, Futurama). While others would visit worlds of fantasy and gaming (Pokemon, Avatar, Anime).

We're interested in all merchandise related to these ventures. From Bugs Bunny to Casper The Friendly Ghost to the Flintstones to the Jetsons to Popeye to the Simpsons to Pinky and the Brain to Rick and Morty.

Toys - Animation Cells - Lunch Boxes

We're especially interested in 1960's merchandize and things from the now defunct Warner Bros Gallery and Studio Store.

Star Trek/Star Wars

Star Trek/Star Wars

One of these franchises is approaching half a century old. The other over half a century. And, we’ve watched them all!!! Both have produced content in every form of merchandise one can think of.
Whether your tastes lean toward The Force or you part ways with friends wishing them to Live Long and Prosper, we are open to buying any and all of it! Our tastes lean to toys of course - but there is so much more!

Lunch Boxes - Movie Posters - Magazines - Video Games - Statues - Action Figures - Toys

General Decorations - Blow Mold Figures - Tin Toys - Vintage Plastic Toys - Invitations - Die-cuts - Tin Noisemakers - Vintage Candy Related (Rosen - Rosbro et al) - Fortune Telling Items - Vintage German - Beistle - Dennison - Gibson - Hallmark (pre-1990's)

Vintage Sports

Vintage Sports

We're not sports fanatics - but our kids are. Sometimes we wonder where they came from! Before our kids came along, we'd never have a game on at our house. Oh, we had no problem putting on a game when a relative or friend came over, but we never did for ourselves. And yet we've always had an affinity for the sports toys of yesteryear. Some of those items are:

Hartland Football and baseball players - Action Team Mates - Aurora Models' Sports Kits - McFarlane Toys

We're looking for most sports related items. Have a collection to get rid of? Give us a call!

Trading Cards - Sports/Non-Sports:Lunch Boxes

Trading Cards - Sports/Non-Sports
Lunch Boxes

We know - why combine these categories? Because it's fun to - and we can! We love the images and themes that were represented in trading cards sets. From Baseball cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays to Non-Sport card sets of Mars Attacks and even, yes, Garbage Pail Kids. Packs of cards cost little and were so fun to try to amass complete sets. And what bettter way to transport them around than in a Munsters lunch box! If you have any lying around, give us a shout. We're looking for most character lunch boxes and most trading card sets.

Topps - Leaf - Fleer - Aladdin - Thermos

Send them all our way!
Andy Capp

Andy Capp

Andy Capp was created by Reg Smythe in 1957. His name was a pun on "handicap" (for we Americans who miss the pun, say it with a Northern England or Cockney accent - hint: drop the "H" sound) for Reg's love of horse racing. Long before the current too-PC world we live in, Andy was a smoking, drinking, job-dodging laze about who, like his contemporary Ralph Kramden, threatened his wife with physical violence - but was married to no push over. Flo - like Ralph's Alice - was truly his "better" half; never backing down and always making sure Andy knew his place. The female 1/2 of L & L fell in love with this character in the 1970's and still has a fondness for the rascal. Laura has amassed quite the collection of Andy memorabilia. But she's always looking for more! If you happen to have any Andy Capp items, drop us line! We're looking for just about anything with Andy's image on it that we don't have.
