Thing You Find In An Antique Store – Toys

I haven’t traveled very much since COVID, but I do live in a town with numerous Antique Stores. It is always fun to visit these stores capture photos of old interesting items.

This is a Fisher Price Tutor house. It dates back to the 1960’s. The selling price on Etsy ranges for $35.00 to $150.00. If you can not have a real doll house, why not own a plastic one.

Any child’s collection is not complete without the Fisher Price barn. Or, parents purchased the barn because all kids loved playing with animals. On Etsy this item is price between $12.00 and $90.00.

The Fisher Price School house. I know as a kid, we regularly played school. Our tiny desks were suppose to be for homework, but it was a convenient prop to play school. On Etsy this antique is priced between $16.00 and $60.00. This one is probably cheaper because I do not see little people.

Most people have heard the poem “The Old Women Who Lived in a Shoe”. Fisher Price made a shoe based on that poem. One of the benefits of the toy, it allowed children to practice tying shoes. Etsy has it priced around $15.00. The old women is priced at $8.00.

The Fisher Price Telephone, like the shoe, it came with a string so kids could pull it along. The condition of this toy, make $16.50 a little over priced.

The Fisher Price Goldilocks and Three Bears Playhouse. It came with a key to unlock the house. It is a rare item on Etsy, there is only four of these for sale.

The last toy I found was the Fisher Price Hickory Dickory Clock.

Fall 2020

In October 2020, I went on an adventure to take picture of Fall. Since, I haven’t traveled outside the State in 2020 the pictures were taken at local parks. I have figured out why people love Fall so much, it is the colors. Green, Red, Oranges, and browns. The most difficult decision is: What pictures to include in the blog?

Walk Around Park

Here are a few pictures of my first outing since….  I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment.  My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.

I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.

The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.

Fall 2019

Here are a few pictures of Fall.  Leaves are turning.  Branches are becoming bare.  There a cool, blistering breeze in the air.  The kind that can blow you down and there is not enough clothing that you can put on the protect you from the cold wind.

Sunrise, from Hotel Parking Lots

Some people stay at a hotel until it is time to check out.  Me I wake up and get going.  One of benefit is I get to see a lot of sunrises.  Here are the pictures I took from the hotel parking lot.  I saw a bunch more sunrises.  No pictures because I was driving.
