11th-Apr-2009 03:05 pm - Floaties?
I was wondering does anyone in Europe know if the European Disney stores still stock floaty pens? I know that Rome still has a Rome specific Mickey floaty pen made by an Italian. I also know Rome, Milan, Paris, Florence and London used to stock Danish made city pen sets but I'm not sure do they still sell them. I've never heard of European stores selling movie floaty pens, but if anyone knows any different they can tell me. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Also....Any one know if Disney still produce them tumblers that had things floating down the sides. Not the dome shaped sippys. These were shaped like a normal tumbler. I appear to have lost mine when we moved house.

They used to be for sale in all Disney stores. I got my first one in the Disney Store in Oxford but there appears to be no info left on them even. :S

A none Disney example is.....

And sorry if I spammed your f-list
14th-Jan-2009 04:00 pm - Free Appraisals-Rest of January
Hi, I'm Shatterdfuture!  I'm a antique dealer seller for 30+ years and love writing, blogging and reading others thoughts as well.  Since my interest in Antiques and Collectibles have spanned the plus side of 30 years having a Mother who dragged me along to flea markets and estate sales as a child I developed a hatred that as time passed I grew to love and then the love turned into career that I enjoy.  Buying and selling and collecting have supported me for several years both independently and jointly with other jobs. For the last 20 years I have been pretty much independent from other forms of employment. 

Since I'm new on LJ,  as a welcome way to meet new friends I will offer free of fee an Appraisal for one item to each person who sends me a detailed description or photos.   Descriptions if without photos must be what the item is,  marks,  condition,  which includes chips, cracks, repairs, or anything that doesn't look right.  Please let me know colors or style/design if no photo.  I will be happy to tell you what I know about your item,  including age,  value and appraisal value for insurance purposes.  I have been doing appraisals for 25 years.  

I am a licensed business owner.  I have 3 on-line internet stores,  one real store,  and a repeat client base.  I am not looking to buy your items.   My desire here is to make new friends only and offer a service for free until January ends.

Thank,  Sf.

Hi. I'm new here... Anyone collect any of the following types of things:

- Does anyone collect product packaging? (wrappers, bottles, tubes, etc)

- Electronics who speak in a human voice.

- Things or pictures of things who are brandnamed with a human first name. ("Patricia Tomatoes", "Lori Locks", "Bella Napkins", etc, etc)

- Electronic devices who personify themselves (They refer to themselves as "I", "me", "my", etc through speech or on LCD displays, etc, etc)

- Coin operated machines.

- Industrial stuff like control panels, etc...

- Machines who monitor or control a Large space (alarm panels, synchronized clocks, factory automation stuff)

- Things who say or display full month names or atleast the month abbreviations... Things which show/say dates in "Saturday, January 10, 2009" format -really- rock.

- Handheld electronic games

- manufacturers labels

- things who act like they have a mind of their own. Like things who malfunction interestingly...

Thanks in advance,

So my Limited Edition Soom Beryl just arrived Oct 3...
And she is AMAZING! But I'm not sure she is what I had in mind... I think my DIM Choseol has warped my chances of truly appreciating other dolls. :/

So I'm CONCIDERING selling her. And am putting up this feeler (for about 3 to 4 weeks) to guage interest and consider potential offers.
The 3 to 4 weeks will give me time to consider if selling her is the right thing to do and to give others the time to consider her as an addition to their home.
If a good offer or situation presents itself, I may cut the feeler short and accept one of the current offers made.

She is a Full Set. Limited Edition doll by Soom. She is 65cm tall with her human legs, 69cm tall with her hooved legs.
She is body blushed. She is one of the lighter blushings, not as dark as the defauly... And I'm pleased to say that while they did use yellow on her, its faint and it looks fantastic. There isn't much, if any, green used... Unless they mixed it with the brown to change the color tone. But she is by no means mossy in color like the stock photos.

Her face up is incredibly gorgeous and meticulous.

1st-Sep-2008 11:32 pm - Lost Doll Information..
I have had this doll since my childhood. This is my favorite childhood doll.

I am trying to find her origin, ie, what year she was made, her official name and what type of animal she is classified as.

The only item legible on her tag is "Animal Fair". She came in a pink jumper dress with a white and pink shirt under it. She still has the pink bow sewn into her hair.

If anyone is familiar with this brand and has any information, I would love to know.

thank you!

Does anyone know anything about this object? I found it in my aunt's attic. It's ceramic and comes with paper calendar days, dates, etc. Bottom says made in Japan. It was in a box with a bunch of World War 2 documents.

Any hints are appreciated!

Thanks in advance :)

I've begun collecting vintage figurines of the type posted in this entry. They are ceramic with tiny little clear glass beads all over them. Does anyone know anything about this "genre"? When they were made? I don't even know what they are called, which makes it hard to search for more! Any help is appreciated!
Thanks :)

Yesterday I was laying about blowing my nose and hacking with my sickness. And I mostly just sat on the sofa and played on the laptop. I just had to go and search around on things like the My Little Pony Arena, Dresden Dolls forum, Ebay... Etc.. Just in case there might be something to get or do or talkabout.

So I decided to look on Craigslist. See if there was a updated list of the upcoming Kansas City - Wide Garage Sales. Because I love to find some cheap toys that are worth a lot more in the internet world. It just excites me to the core. And then I was done with that I decided to look at the toy section of Wichita's Craig List..

The first article title was something like Vintage GI Joe Vehicles $75.. So I opened it thinking maybe they were nothing and the person had no idea what they were talking about.. But it was in fact something very good.

I started to question, all of it for JUST 75 dollars? The Jet with all its accessories alone is around 65 dollars on ebay.   So I immediately attempted to make telephone contact and ask if it was still available on their message. 

I had even emailed them JIC.. And they called me back.  I told them to hold them for me and I was very interested. Then I immediately called my other half and told him the finding. And he was like uh.. yeah lets go get it. 

And I called the people back and we are going to get this stuff tomorrow. The collest thing is the stuff looks pretty complete. The woman said that it was her husbands stuff as a kid. I had lost all faith that little boys kept their toys in such good condition, like wise keep the accessories and missles together.  But yeah, most of all I'm especially excited that I found such an awesome thing and that I found it for my Teddy Bear who is very appreciative :D
Last week I had found that plane without it's accessories for 6 dollars. I was very excited that I had found a treasure and had told him and he said hes always wanted one since he was a kid. So this and all the other stuff is like ultra christmas.  I don't think ill let him see the picture, I think I'll wait until he sees it  all in person.

Tragedy has struck me! My collection of diecast model cars that took my near 13 years to amass, must go due to $ troubles. I am heartsick over this! This collection means the world to me and its very precious! But, my families comfort and well being mean more!
So it has to go! I dont know what else to say except that its a sacrifice I'll have to make. So goodbye my lovelies!  I enjoyed looking at and admiring you as much as I enjoyed collecting you over the years! If anyone knows of someone who would be interested in buying my collection,please let me know. There are 80-1:18 scale cars, 10 1:24 scale cars,and about 65 or 70 1:64 scale cars. The 1:64 scale
are mostly Johnny lightening and Matchbox. (all recent releases). Asking $1000. I will e-mail pics upon request. Thanks
Whether you collect Ponies, Dolls, Transformers or Gi-Joes, this post might be a good read and a good service to you.

My pony collection made fame on the last page of the local newspaper.

The photo was positioned right below the birth announcements and right above a college jazz band with a black and white. And that was a much smaller photo.

NEW COMMUNITY, for collcetiong Sailor Moon Dolls =)
5th-Dec-2007 06:33 pm - OMG!!!
What you are looking at are the most expensive plush Mickey and Minnie dolls I have ever seen in my life!!!  These Mickey and Minnie dolls were made by Charlotte Clark (?) gotta do research on that name.... The Mickey doll is $ 17,500.00 and the Minnie is .....$27,000.00!!!! NO JOKE!  These dolls and other Disney antiques are on a website called tomart.  If you are interested in purchasing one of the dolls, you have to pay $5,000.00 down, then pay the rest once your money clears. The dolls were made between 1930 and 1932.  So if you are looking for that special plushie....look no further!!! *giggle*  You know you want them!!!

P.S. I found info on Charlotte Clark:


Clark was born Carolyn Geis in Indianapolis, Indiana to German immigrants. She married Frank Clark and moved to Los Angeles around the turn of the century. It is unknown how or when she adopted the nickname "Charlotte". She died in 1958.

Career with Disney

Shortly following the release of Walt Disney's Steamboat Willie, Charlotte Clark designed the first Mickey Mouse doll in early 1930. She obtained permission from the Disney Studio, and the dolls began to appear in Los Angeles area stores. Demand soon exceeded her ability to produce the dolls, so Clark designed sewing patterns so customers could make their own dolls at home.

Clark continued to make dolls personally for Disney, which he handed out as gifts to friends, family and business contacts. As the collection of Disney characters grew, Clark created patterns for Donald Duck, Pluto, Minnie Mouse and other popular characters.

For collectors of Disneyana, Charlotte Clark dolls are among the most coveted of Disney memorabilia.

Good news from my Schleich forest: a piglet has returned to his family's lap!
(Between you and me: the thing is that I've bought the piglet figure a couple of days ago ).

Let's look at the pictures of the happy return.

I’ve received the latest photo report from a photographer, who has just returned from a photo safari in the Schleich forest. He has been watching the life of chimpanzees for a good while and made great photos showcasing these apes in the wild.
Here I post a photo story about one day in the life of a very nice Schleich chimpanzee family.

20th-Oct-2007 01:37 am - Helllooooo Everybody!

I am new to this group! I love collecting anything having to do with Animaniacs! I have a room which I call the "Watertower." It is a sort-of shrine to my collectibles! You can check out my page anytime! If you have anything Animaniacs to sell or trade, let me know! I am a maniac for Animaniacs!!!

I have unclean ancient Roman coins for sale. I make no guarantees as to the quality of the coins you will find. These coins have been buried for over 1500 years. Some have stood up to the test of time and others have not. If you are looking for a guarantee quality buy, I can point you in the right direction. Those prices are much higher. My coins are best suited for the armature collector or those who just can’t afford to buy the more expensive coins. Although, I have found some highly detailed coins.
