When I saw these little vintage Playmobil figures I was immediately whisked back to being five years old. I would have been thrilled to wake up on Christmas morning and to have unwrapped this hoard! I only had a couple of figures a nurse, a construction worker, a little car I think – but I spent HOURS making up little stories and scenarios. Imagine how long this lot would keep you occupied for! The set is being sold in aid of Action 21.
Who’s for a game of Cowboys & Indians… and, er Crusaders?
*Action 21 promotes sustainable living to people in Warwickshire through positive practical action. Our activities centre on re-use, food, transport, energy and education and we are supported by a thriving volunteer programme.
We often write posts that feature a certain week’s vintage homewares purchases – mini hauls. There’s only one way to describe this lot of items – a super haul!
We can’t actually take any credit for finding all these wonderful pieces. They were all hunted down by Emma Gladding, aka Wooden Donkey.
She has recently decided to call it a day in terms of trading and we said that we’d buy her remaining stock. Having agreed a price (a very fair price), seven boxes of vintage goodies duly arrived. Emma was very glad to get the space back in her house and we were very happy to get the booty – perfect outcome all round!
We definitely have similar tastes and it felt just like Christmas unwrapping all the wonderful things.
We might allow ourselves the odd treat, but we’ll be putting the majority of items into our web shop & antiques centre pitch over the coming weeks & months. Watch this space!
