I buy old toys!!!
I am interested in toys from the 1960's and before. Attached are pictures of my toy collection to give you an idea of what I am after. I collect pedal cars, pressed steel toys, tin toys, windup toys, friction toys, push toys, ride on toys, banks, cast iron toys, etc. I am not interested in dolls, hot wheels, matchbox, corgi, anything plastic, anything made after the 1960's. If you have something to sell or for me to take a look at, you will need to send me pictures. I do not sell anything I have in my collection. I do sell toys in an antique mall here in Nacogdoeches....Nacogdoches Antique Market located on Hwy 59 south of Nacogdoches towards Lufkin about 6 miles.
I show my collection by appointment only. I reserve the right to determine who I show and who I do not. Pickers are NOT WELCOMED! Anyone younger than 40 really does not relate to this collection. I am mainly interested in showing it to the 40's and older crowd. Baby boomers like myself will especially relate to this collection. It will bring back lots of child hood memories.
I have been collecting for 44 years. I have traveled every state in the Union, shows, flea markets, malls, junk shops, you name it. I go to the premier toy shows twice a year in St Louis and Chicago. My collection has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles. I also have been featured on Channel 19 Tyler, Texas under J.B.'s Journal. You can see that feature by going to that stations webpage and downloading stories by J.B's Journal. Mine is entitled "The Toy Collector". Bob Philips of The Texas Country Reporter will be airing a feature on me this fall. It will be shown all over Texas and some other markets.
Feel free to contact me if you have a question. I only answer through email. If I determine the email is NOT A SCAM, I will reply and give you my phone number.
