I really enjoy finding larger items. Yes, they are harder to ship because I have to find larger boxes and more packing materials, but I have found I like to deal with the larger items more than the smalls. Shipping no longer intimidates me. You may have noticed many of my items that I posst are larger — typewriters, globes, and luggage pieces. Today I thought I would show you a couple of my smaller items I purchased recently.
This doll is called a yo-yo doll. They were popular in the 60s and 70s. The lady I bought it from was adorable. She was so proud of this doll. She said she made it in the 70s. She was getting rid of her stuff, and no one wanted it. I think she was happy that someone did want it. My Mom crochets. I don’t she ever made one of these dolls, but I could see her doing it. I love the multicolored pieces of the body. Oh and the face of this doll, so cute.
I admit this was one of the purchases I am not really sure why I bought. This is brass pig family. I am so not into pigs. Did I tell you that my family had pigs when I was really little. I remember shucking corn for them. I was probably 5 when my Dad got rid of them. Yeah, they stunk.
I am not a Mickey Mouse collector. One sale I stopped at had two large tables of Mickey Mouse stuff she collected in the 70s and 80s. The only thing I bought was this little Mickey Mouse musical wind-up toy that plays Brahms Lullaby. I love that lullaby. Her prices were reasonable, so someone who loves Mickey was a happy person when they found her sale.
These McDonald’s Mickey Mouse Millenium glasses were at another sale. They looked brand new.
Ok I just said I wasn’t into Mickey, but here is my third Mickey item. This cake pan was in an auction box I won for another item. I was looking on Ebay and cake pans sell well. I will clean this one up and list it there.
I also like to buy unusual items. The woman said her husband made this horseshoe man. Living near the Badlands and Roughrider Country, I can bet he did. It would look great in a man cave.
So do you buy small or large items? Breakable and not breakable? Or whatever strikes your fancy?
I haven’t seen a doll like that in years – my Mom had one but it was made out of fabric.
I love the pigs!!
Glad it brought back memories. I know there are pig lovers out there. Thanks for letting me know you like them.
Even though you are not a pig lover, I think your little brass pigs are absolutely adorable! I am in love with all little brass figurines.
I knew there would be people who love these pigs, that must be why I bought them. 🙂 do you collect brass figures?
