I love vintage toys for several reasons - they are sturdy to play with, don't break easily, and are actually made in America (or Europe). Also, usually no batteries required - an extra big bonus in this house. I have started to add some vintage toys to my booth, and most have done well. On my very first day while I was setting up, a Humpty Dumpty Fisher Price toy sold. An old doll has also since sold as well as some Duplo legos I have in bags in a basket (eye level for kids - sneaky, I know).
Last Friday I found this great metal excavator toy for $1.99. I put it in my booth for $10, and it sold in a day (makes me think I priced it too low). I wonder if a kid will get to play with it in his sandbox, or if a dad picked it up out of nostalgia (look at that great patina).
I also love how these vintage Playskool blocks feature a regular girl building with blocks - no special marketing in pink (such as the new girly Lego kits). Also made in America!
By the way, the mint green trays in front are ceramic and super sturdy - I was tempted to keep those, but I am getting so much better at letting things go now that I have a booth to put them in. My husband appreciates that part too...
Which type of vintage toys catch your attention?
Linking up with Apron Thrift Girl - who now has her own vintage booth as well (it is drop-dead gorgeous throughout of course)
