Edition 28

Welcome to the New Year!

Here we are again, wondering what the year will bring.  Hopefully success and prosperity for you all, sprinkled with a little joy. 

We had a vast number of visitors and customers over the holiday period - thanks to you all.  We are always pleased to hear your positive comments about the shop.  We do take some care in arranging and managing the in-store presentation.  With 12,000 different items, it's always a challenge to keep things navigable.  We do try to theme some areas and keep like with like.

So, what's new?  We've had some carnival and sideshow come in over the Christmas period.  There's some wonderful old banners, carousel ride figures and games!

This pig carousel ride is c1920s and in excellent condition for its age!

We're looking forward to more coming in - there may even be some circus items and memorabilia (if we're lucky!). 

Keep an eye on the website, or better still, subscribe to the Carnival/Sideshow category and be the first to know!

We occasionally get enquiries as to whether we have any letters - ie: alphabet letters.  We've always has a few, but last week we came upon a truck full!  What's the collective noun for alphabet letters?  Maybe a "soup" of letters.  Here's a sample of what we have:

Sizes range from the small to the very large.  Some are plastic, some metal, some light up. We've put a couple of them together into 'SUPER" (as in Super Petrol) light up signs.

Here's a couple of other thoughts we've had with the letters:

Prices range from $25 for an individual letter.  Buy a few and we can talk bulk price!

Till next time, cheers,

Peter & Andrea
