I started my own handyman business in 1990 and over the years I became a skilled furniture maker and hand carver. My abilities with all of these diverse occupations has given me a wealth of experience and knowledge and I’ve developed techniques that I’ve been able to use in the repair and restoration of the toys I love.
The primary goal of this site is to offer fine quality vintage toys of all kinds and subjects and to be a new and helpful resource for collectors and lovers of toys to obtain impossible to find parts or links to people that can help.
With regard to my restoration services and techniques, I strive to use original parts from ‘donor’ toys as much as possible. Being a collector myself, I understand that authenticity is the key determining factor with regard to the intrinsic value of the toy. Also knowing that there is a broad spectrum to the levels and expectations of the hobby, I pride myself in being able to cater to all and draw from a wide variety of sources for authentic parts and incredible reproductions.
My career has been based on the premise of quality and excellence, and that is all that I wish to offer you here. Please enjoy the site and visit often!
