Today's blog is another case of identity (with forgiveness from Alexander Dumas and his book Title "A Tale of Two Cities".
I recently purchased 2 cast iron gasoline trucks form the 1930's. The danger with old cast iron toys, is that you never know if they were made 80 years ago, or last week in China or India. You can refer back to my last entry before this one to see what I mean.
I just purchased these 2 items from E-Bay sellers who ranked in with 4000 buys+ sales, so you have to give them some credence and be confident from whom you buy. Unfortunately, the previous items (see the previous blog) was the same story in terms of the numbers, but the items were not real!
As a Canadian, it's hard enough to buy from the U.S. Many E-Bay sellers are happy just to sell in the U.S.
Why have to make a trip to the local post office to fill out a form, when you have 350,000,000 potential customers there compared to 35,000,000 up here in Canada, and you don't have to get out of your computer chair! I don't want to complain, because I'll lose 1 potential source of toys. Anyway, I digress, and so let's get back to the topic today.
