NEW TO US and NEWS

Published on April 4, 2014,

Welcome back to our webpage; we are TRYING to get better about more frequent posts…..sorry! If you have questions, just e-mail or call anytime, we are here for you.

Tomorrow is our last day of 20 percent off all kitchen items, dolls and porcelain items. We have a lot of new PYREX in here (anchor hocking, fireking, made in England PYREX, and even some MSE now). We have really been hearing our customers and our inventory is getting better all the time. We have a little of everything; a gum ball machine (older and on a stand), a 4th grade sized doll, and even TOILET GOLF (yes, putt while you ‘you know!’)…..where else can you get something so ‘serious’ and something so hilarious at the same time. We still have an amazing mug inside our door on your left; you will have to read it for yourself. We have a lot of new jewelry, some great new to us LENOX pieces, some JIM SHORE pieces (fairly new to us), and believe it or not WE EVEN HAVE A CRYSTAL CAR 1:24 sized! We put new things out daily. So, come in and see for yourself. The comics have been ‘walking out the door’ very fast lately, and we just keep cleaning items, pricing, and putting them out to meet your needs. We are still on e-bay CRTREASURECHEST. We have over 440 items right now on there; most we have EVER had. We have been busy, busy, busy. Thanks for shopping us, and we can’t wait to see you again soon. Thanks. Have a great FINAL FOUR weekend; come see us though, too!

Pedal Car and Tractors and ohhhh so much more….

Published on March 6, 2014,

Have you driven by this week? Well, if NOT, you might want to ‘drive on up’ and check out our ‘won’t last long’ pedal car. This one is a very rare find, found here for the time being, a SUPERMAN GearBox (thus, locally made in Cedar Rapids) pedal car in EXCELLENT condition. We have several ‘new to us’ tractors that just came in, along with some amazing new piggy banks (mainly metal / cast iron, etc.) and were from a former collector that had over 2000. We purchased about 30 of ‘em, and about 20 remain. We have great dishes for the newly weds or those getting their first apartment or heading off to college. We have a lot of damaged jewelry at great prices to use for crafting, and oh soooo much more. COME ON IN, and do spring your clock forward THIS WEEKEND. We continue to be open until 4:30 pm or whenever the lights are on so as long as people come, we stay open. If you know that you want to come and it will be after 4:30, give a call, and we will certainly stay and be here for you, for SURE! If you want us to be here when we are closed, plan ahead, and we will come in and be open for you, happily! Thank you. SEE YOU SOON at THE CHEST!

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Published on January 5, 2014,

HAPPY 2014 to everyone!  We apologize for the weather but are not responsible for creating it, unfortunately!  

We WILL be closed MONDAY, January 6, 2014, due to the high temp for the day only reaching -14; Tuesday,

January 7, 2014, we will re-open provided and when the temperature reaches -5 degrees that day.  We apologize

for the inconvenience, but as ‘children’ to our parents, and ‘parents’ to our own children, we feel that is the most

safe.  AND, WE DON’T FEEL ANYONE SHOULD BE OUT SHOPPING in those temperatures either.  It is TOO COLD.  We

will see you on TUESDAY, January 7 or the 8th, on Wednesday, once the ARCTIC DEEP FREEZE passes through our

area!!  STAY WARM; snuggle, cuddle on your couch, sit by a fire (pretend works, too!)…..but stay warm.  COME back

TUESDAY or WEDNESDAY (to the store front) for a SURPRISE SPECIAL that day ONLY, and announced IN HOUSE ONLY!  SEE YOU

AGAIN SOON AT TREASURE CHEST COLLECTIBLES!!
