  1. Nice. I want a seashell bathroom room in my new house if I ever buy one.
  2. Nice rare find.
  3. Unusual and interesting.
  4. Great way to display them
  5. I had that one as a kid.
  6. Nicely illustrated book. I hate sticky labels too. You did well to get it off something so old and fragile.
  7. Nice bunch of finds. The gnome will look great amongst your daffs
  8. Nice bugs. Enjoy your trip
  9. Great to have the box too. Looks rather rare to me.
  10. One of the ugliest rear ends of any car. Good find though
  11. Nice. It looks a bit like Doctor Who's car. http://thenewswheel.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Doctor-Who-Bessie-Car.jpg
  12. It looks like it must be for some sort of whisking. Or possibly very primitive alien technology.
  13. Nice example
  14. The shell sign is an all time classic design and a great example
  15. Definitely like the look of the Robinhood castle
  16. The diagonal lines must have some significance. Have you tried holding a mirror up against them maybe? Then again the characters don't look like they would be recognisable either forwards or reflected...
  17. Whoa, back the bus up a minute. Did you say the Dimetrodon isn't a dinosuar? I've been lied to all these years.
  18. Interesting. Have you wired it up to your traffic light?
  19. Love the transporter and the way the ramp comes down. Really unusual.
  20. If I were a snooty scientist I'd be more bothered about the 60 million year anachronism of making these to go with dinosaurs, rather than the spelling.
  21. Nice logo. If I had to guess I'd say B-16-28 could be to denote the batch made on the 16th week in 1928. Maybe.
  22. Excellent collection. The rock formation makes a really nice background.
  23. Thank you Fort. And thanks Vetraio, Merry Christmas too you too.
  24. Great fire station
  25. As my Gran used to say, As long as you have your elf, that's the main thing.
  26. Nice. Not seen a collarless one before.
  27. Some really nice bits and pieces. Not sure about that armband though. Never seen one like that before and the quality of the cross isn't great. I actually wonder if someone has interfered with it at s...
  28. Interesting. Thanks for taking the time to type it up
  29. Wonderful item. Is it definitely WW2? just has the look of something older about it.
  30. Awesome
  31. Great to still have the labels
  32. Very cool. My dad had something like that. I used to take it and pretend I was someone from star trek with a hi-tech space gadget.
  33. Thank you fort. Agree it is a clever use of the packaging to make it a garage you can use.
  34. What, no Neneh Cherry?
  35. Nice radio. I would have guessed it was bakelite had you not said it was plastic.
  36. Did they ever do a WW1 set for GI Joe?
  37. Love the design. If Gort was going to juice oranges he would use this.
  38. The long handle makes me think the cleaning drains suggestions are probably on the right track.
  39. Never knew such a thing existed in 1956. Nice item.
  40. I bet it still tastes nicer than that tea I had.
  41. Haven't seen one with a rubber muzzle before. The cat is useful for providing a sense of scale, btw
  42. This representation of Peter Pan makes him look quite elf or pixie like.
  43. Might not be as old as 1066, they just used a man with a big axe to control rats back then, or baked them into a pie. The patent number dates to 1947 so must date from soon after that time I'd think.
  44. Some sort of coffee grinder or similar? I have no idea. But I like the look of it.
  45. Great that you have the box for it now
  46. Good finds. All the thrift stores I know here in the UK check everything. Anything with a hallmark or stamped sterling is immediately priced up above my budget. You have to be lucky and find someth...
  47. Your radio looks great on there and it does make a good table.
  48. I never knew such a thing existed. Very interesting. I think you are on the right track with 20s to 30s.
  49. The look good hanging on the wall like that.
  50. The shed is looking great.
