Missus Moonbase and I have been celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary this weekend. We went to the brilliant York Car boot sale to start us off in the sweltering summer heat. If you like antiques its the boot fair to die for. Its also pretty darn good for toys and everything else as well!
I didn't buy any toys. We got a few books but the toys I noticed were as follows [pictures off old auctions on the net]:
Codeg Toy Town Telephone Exchange - a beautiful toy close up and technology that will one day be forgotten.
Geoda Walkie Talkies. I loved the psychedelic box art.
Super Soccer - unsure of the makers - its a sort of magnetic table soccer. I've bought and sold one but not in this huge box with the ace cover art.
Airfix Junior Driver - I'm pretty sure I had a very early version of this as a kid in the back of my Dad's car! The example at York was carded like this and in a clear bag.
The Fastest Gun with its fantastic box art. A Denys Fisher 3D gem and one I may still have in the attic.
Not a toy at all, I just loved this little metal paper-knife shaped like a sword. It has the word TOLEDO on the blade top, the famed Italian home of sword smithing. I couldn't help thinking whether the hilt would fit into Action Man's hand! A knight or musketeer would have made a great outfit for Palitoy's fighting man don't you think?
There was tons more but I can't recall any more individual items. Doh!
