We just got our hands on another lot of vintage Playmobil figures and accessories that I know you’ll want to add to your collection. Most come from the Victorian Mansion series including the rare Pretzel Seller cart, the flower bike, nursery items, a car and a fence. We also have a camper or van that […]
Everyone wants to look cool on Halloween but wow, the prices at those pop cup costumes stores are insane! It’s one thing if you’re going to buy an outfit that you’re going to wear again and again, but to pay $50 or more for one night really hurts. The solution? Buy your costumes on eBay. […]
Time for another thrift and garage sale haul!
I got into buying and selling on eBay because of my love for TV memorabilia. When I started, I wrote about TV toys for various magazines and I even wrote and published a whole book on the subject. As a collector, I was constantly looking to upgrade my collection, so I’d sell items in order […]
