"I have around
20,000 or more
Hot Wheels in my
Toys Collection"
I have been a Collector most my life.  It all began with a very cool model die-cast 1967 Mustang by Hot
Wheels that was given to me when I turned 8.  As a young boy, my Uncle use to let me work beside
him on the cars in his garage.  I payed close attention as he taught me everything he knew. He was a
great teacher and I learned quickly and those around me were impressed that as soon as I saw a car
going down the street, I could immediately tell them the make and model.  I developed a particularly
keen interest in muscle cars and trucks. Since I wasn't old enough to drive, 1:64 scale versions were
the next best thing.  I traded, bought, and asked for a different Hot Wheel (and sometimes Matchbox)
every chance I got. My friends and family (what I call "F&F") never had to wonder what to give me for
my birthday and Hanukkah. They were surprised when they returned and saw the box unopened. But
they felt reassured when I told them how happy I was just looking at them and justified it by saying
how "they're an investment too because they'll be worth more later". Today I own over 20,000 Hot
Wheels.

In grade school, most of my friends read comic books and traded baseball cards, so I naturally began
collecting both of those.  A few years later, I was introduced to coin and stamp collecting.  Every year
it seemed like my "collector" fever grew and consequently so did my number of collections.  In my
teens I added tin signs, wind-up toys, figures, bobble heads and Wacky Wobblers to the list.  Once I
could drive,, I got larger scale vehicle replicas for my car display case. Ty Beanie Babies first hit the
scene in 1993 when I was in my late 20's and I jumped on board and started collected them as well.
In my 30's, I saw a classic '54 Plymouth Plaza for sale. A week later I purchased my first classy watch
and the Plaza.  Feeling more sophisticated, I felt a need to purchase items that reflected my maturity,
so next on my collector's list:  items based on famous celebrities (such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley,
and James Dean), motion pictures (i.e. The Wizard Of Oz), television shows (i.e. I Love Lucy, 3 Stooges,
and Little Rascals), and famous household name-brands (i.e. Coca-Cola, M&M, Pillsbury); artwork (i.e.
Pin-up Girls and animation cels). My F&F's taste in merchandise consequently also changed and they
surprised me with other name-brand merchandise like NASCAR jackets and autographed sports
memorabilia.

By the time I reached 40yrs. of age, collecting was a full-time hobby.  I shifted my focus onto "vintage"
products which included: ads featuring famous name-brands (i.e. Coppertone, Coca-Cola, Lucky Strike);
music items (i.e. Gramophones, vinyl records, sheet music, instruments); arcade games (pinball and
slot); and dispensers (soda and candy).  F&F brought me books. Somewhere after 45, my interests
expanded to include swords and antique Military and medieval weapons.  F&F brought me knives.

Unfortunately for me, due to poor vision, it's now time to part with my collections - thus the birth of
this online store.  Happy hunting...
