I recently purchased this fun ceramic at a local garage sale. When the seller flipped over the piano and wind it up the two little magnetic dogs started dancing to “I want to be loved by you just you and nobody else but you.” I smiled.
I later went to visit someone at the hospital. I still had the song buzzing in my ear and shared it with the volunteer who gave me the pass. We both broke into a singing duet right in the lobby with Betty Boop song and ending with laughter as we said ” Boop boop de doop.”
What great baby boomer therapy!
In case you are wondering this cute little item was purchased for 1.00 and sold for 12.51 in auction. But it brought so much pleasure that I almost kept it.
Running an on-line eBay Consignment Shop opens up the door to many types of collectibles that you may not think as being collectible. Here at Deals-R-Us, we like to focus on music items, clothing and vintage housewares.
Our consignors bring us items such as vases, antique sewing items, comic books, glassware, estate jewelry to consign and sell for them. These collectibles must be researched to determine if they are valuable in today’s collector’s market or if they are something we would pass on selling or suggest selling in a garage sale or donating to a charity thrift shop. For example, this item was brought to me by a collector who won it in an auction. Our research found that it’s rare wood puzzle from 1971 and features the Captain Crunch Cereal characters.
I looked at this video on classic baby boomer toys and commercials. I only remember wanting to be like superman. But things have not changed a lot. Still lots of focus on action toys. Just don’t see anything about trains these days for children.
So pull out those toys baby boomers and have some fun. Not too late for us to play.
