ebay Golfer3105
A New Guest

"In his own words"

"Feel free to use my pictures. My name is Livio from Switzerland and my goal is only to restore toys if they are broken or poorly restored from somebody before, who didn't have the skills and "destroyed it before. In my case,a fire destroyed almost all of my toys, and I had to rebuild from scratch. That means that I will save any toys in their original condition as possible."

When I received the reply from golfer3105 ( a merchant on ebay), I was surprised at the reply.
In my letter, I had mentioned the fine "restored" items that he had. Livio replied that I had his permission to use his photos, and, he mentioned that he likes to  restore items. Lately, I've seen and presented a good amount of restored items, and obviously they do sell.

I also like restored toys, because it presents them at their best. I've restored small toys like the Tootsietoys, and they also sold well.

AS you can see, golfer3105 had a very nice collection of toys for sell.
Moreover, the restored toys are quite nice as well.  In 50 years, 
I wonder what the value of these toys will be, because these
toys will have been true antiques (100 years or older), and will some people care?

Thanks for dropping by, 
and as always, 
Have a great part of the day or night,
Wherever you may be.
