When did you last come in? If it’s been more than a week, then you will not even believe it today! The pedal tractor from the 1960′s valued over $700 about 75% off that price and cheaper than the plastic you can buy today at a local farm store (for example). Co-owner’s birthday is October 30, so it is time to sell TILLIE, whom was last year’s present to herself, and now ready to sell and let someone else enjoy her (size of 4 foot child)….we have about 10 new sealed in the box Board games new the past week, A LOT OF NEW TO THE STORE M & M items and more coming in daily. Most impressive is a one of kind, signed, rare GUND black bear from 1993; you have NOT seen a bear until you have seen this one because quality is the first impression and reality that not all bears are the same (he looks like ‘money’). BEAUTIFUL collector GUND BEAR; rare find. We have a lot of new things in; Ruthie has been pricing for weeks now and in preparation of their exciting grand re-opening, about 500 new to the store items are hitting the floor this week, so do not miss out. COME IN NOW. You will be glad you did. Thanks.

This Saturday, September 6, 2014, is the annual Swampfox Festival in the great Marion, Iowa. Events start early in and around Marion City Park, and TCC will be there for all the great festivities!!! We plan on opening early (around 7:30 am), and staying open late (around 5….or later if you great customers keep coming in). We are participating in the sidewalk sales from 10 – 2, and will have a great promotional handout during that time!!! You don’t want to miss that! Come on down to Marion this Saturday, enjoy the Swampfox festival, and stop in and check out Treasure Chest Collectibles featuring Toy Time!
This is truly a fantastic set: a Monarch stereoscope with 59 Keystone View Company picture cards to go with it. This shows a 3D image like a ViewMaster, but dates back to the early 1900s (1904 is often a date thrown around with similar items). This would be a great decorating piece and would be an outstanding conversation piece! Fantastic condition!
We have a HUGE inventory of miniature items! Animals, objects, animated favorites…plus the shelves and printer drawers to display them in! Check out our great selection of miniature collectibles to fill in your existing collection, or to start your very own. They may be small, but have such a HUGE impact!
