Thrifty Tuesday Finds

Yesterday we went to Goodwill and I found this Marx play set. I remember reading that vintage Marx toys can go for a lot of money so I was pretty excited to spot the Navarone Giant Play Set sitting on the top shelf of the toy aisle. I was getting ready to leave but decided to look down that aisle one more time.

It is missing the toy soldiers and some other stuff but I'm hoping I to make a good profit. Some sold for between $200 and $300 You can view my listing here.

I also found some more plush but nothing that is a high money maker.

2 Alf puppets I know have 3 of these available for sale

Last week, I went over to the thrift store by my house and found some vintage Playmates toys. I have 3 sets of these but only listed 2 for now because Ryker broke the door to the airplane on one.

Mixed in with those were these other figures. I wanted to find out what play set they belonged to so I sent an email to Playmates Toys. The lady who responded said she had never seen them and that they were not by Playmates. I asked in one of my Facebook ebay groups and another member told they were from Unimax and they were space explorers.

I also won this lot of vintage plush toys on Ebay at the beginning of the month. I was quite disappointed when they arrived. They were dirty and smelled of mildew. It was too costly to mail them back, so I thought I would try to salvage what I could by washing them. Most of them came somewhat cleaned but a few did not survive the washer. I have already made my money back on 3 of the animals so the rest is profit. This is the listing picture, not mine.

Fabulous Facebook Find

I found a really cool book shelf on my Facebook garage sale site. Pretty sure it is homemade. Sorry for the bad picture. My camera stopped working so I had to use an ipod.
