Matchbox Mega Score, and more!
« on: April 01, 2021, 09:30:25 AM »
If thereís one thing I love about going to hobby shops, itís seeing some of the old stuff thatís for sale there. Most shops carry the newest and shiniest, but a lot of them also have a section for old collections that have been bought, and thatís where I love to hang out.

With all the current travel restrictions, hobby shop runs have been off the table for a while, but thankfully, a local shop came to the rescue with a buy of 1,200-odd old kits!!! Of course, my heart leapt at the prospect, and I wasnít disappointed!

Among these time-travelers were boxes of Matchbox kits, and you know meÖ I do love me some Matchbox! I managed to get 20 of them that I didnít already have, plus some other goodies! Check out this haul at the link below, and donít forget to vote at the bottom of my page! Thereís a lot to love here!

Of course, there's even some Whiffery going on in my newest lot, and with all these matchboxes, you can't tell me that something isn't going to get whiffed!

What a sweet bunch of kits.  Is an adventure rummaging through older collections.  Often are surprises.  Forgot or never knew Matchbox had a Panther kit.
Congratulations on the "find".
