  26. Great collectible :)..... Still have mine and while it works just fine it almost never gets used. I was never a big Sega (Sonic) fan. I always preferred (Mario- Zelda) Nintendo.
  27. I have a green one I posted ages ago Ken. It's probably "American Bisque" mine has a slightly different bottom. Still not 100% sure though. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/91439-green-deco-sc...
  28. Thanks Karen :) I like 2 it has pretty little stones in five different colors. Maybe it's a mom's bracelet with birthstones in it.

  36. Yes he's awesome Alan. I had one of these in my store a few years back. He was a gift from one of my customers who won him in a Halo contest. His mother no longer wanted him taking up space in their f...
  37. I would say the face is what lets it down. She looks like a bug crawled up her back while posing....lol
  38. Awesome jewels :) Hang on to them no matter what. I had the whole series from the NES 1 through SNES 7 and the X series. I knew better but, sold them when times got tough a few years back , been kick...
  39. Very nice :) Great modern design is always timeless.
  40. Thanks Karen :) Now that I think about it I did see a little perfume bottle in the jewelry case at Volunteer's. I did look at it but didn't buy it. It had a Egypt label on the bottom as you said. A bi...
