Announcement   Welcome to Kitsch N Kaboodle's Toy Shoppe!
maintained by StarWarsDan....

To better help my customers, I've created a new shop specifically dedicated to showcasing my vintage toy collection of over 20 years. I have moved all other departments, containing ephemera, vintage kitchenalia, furniture restorations, interiors, to separate shops.

I hope that by doing so I can more easily concentrate on the best items by category and give buyers the easiest possible way to shop for their particular field of interest.

Kitsch-n-Kaboodle is a family of specialty antiques and ephemera shops maintained by StarwarsDan. After about 20 years of being closed up tight, we have opened the private family collection located in Stewartsville NJ, open on weekend afternoons and by appointment. My parents are major packrat hoarders, and as my mother retires we are purging nearly 10 thousand square feet of our private stock from both my own apartment as well as my parent's home, and items going all the way back to my grandparent's estate.
It is THE must-see sale of the area and not to be missed!

And I am StarWarsDan, so dubbed a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... well actually it was more like 15 years ago in a comic book shop in South Philly... but anyhow, you get the idea...

I BUY TOYS ....somtimes, if it's neat-O!
After a 10-12 year break from toy collecting, I am getting back into it and would like to help others.
QUALITY CONSIGNMENTS WANTED... I specialize in estate collections of vintage toys. I leave no stone unturned, and I do not cherry-pick your childhood things. If you have good condition, interesting toys or related ephemera I could sell for you, within a 3-hour drive from New Jersey (or easily ship-able), drop me a line!


Other shops from Kitsch-n-Kaboodle include

TheUrbanChicShowroom: quality artistic restorations and up-cycled furniture creations from vintage salvage, vintage-inspired and reinvented interiors. Reduce! Re-use! Up-cycle!
(This is the main artisan shop which is my main business- I am an antique furniture conservator)

Objectification: unusual objects of intrinsic quality. Looking beyond utility and traditional ideas of what is collectible or decorative, in the belief that the art of the object is its own utility.

COMING SOON: KanisterKing, the shop for all things Kitchen, Restaurant, and fabulously hospitable.


Think of it like the different departments of Kitsch N Kaboodle....

3rd floor, StarwarsDan's Toy Shoppe, where it's not just Star Wars... it's the Force of the child in all of us.

Welcome to my toy shop!
I am a veteran collector of nearly 25 years, and I understand what it's like from the collector/buyer's POV. I try my best to take this into consideration with every item I post here. My toys come from my personal collection, so they meet or exceed my own expectations of both quality as well as interest. I have no need to post junk or hide defects or reproductions. My items are guaranteed authentic. If I don't like it, I don't sell it. Simple as that!
I have decided after over 10 years of concentrating on furniture restoration and artistic furniture craft, to go back to my roots and expand my business into toys and high quality collectibles. I originally started this shop 2 years ago because of local craigslist cheapskates who would not pay fair prices, even for my own toys that had been photographed for major guidebooks. The Etsy shop has been so successful that I have decided to help others by taking consignments of toy collections. I might as well put my talents and interests to good use!

In the coming months, scheduled for the holidays 2013, I will be unveiling a massive vintage toy collection from a friend of the family that spans over 20 years- from the late 1940s through the early 70s, of well kept and high quality vintage toys!

Do you have toys to consign with me? If so, convo me for details!

Flexible layaway plans are available on most items. I don't mind placing items on "reserve" but feel it appropriate to place a time limit of 30 days on any reserved listings. After 30 days, if the buyer does not follow through with a payment or deposit, I will remove the reserve and offer the item to other parties.

I am easily reached on social networking and by mobile device. Simply send a message through Etsy or find me on Facebook. I will try to return all queries within 24 hours.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!!.... no matter what you collect!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
I accept and prefer any creditcard that is permitted to be processed through Etsy's checkout system via direct checkout.
I also accept paypal payments of any type from any location.
Checks and money orders are also welcomed but not preferred, as long as they are postmarked within 7 days of completing checkout in Etsy's shopping cart system.
Shipping
Small items are usually shipped within 24 hours or one business day.

Larger items, extremely fragile items, or multiple item shipments may require slightly longer to pack safely for transport. If I believe this will be necessary, I will inform the buyer within 24 hours of purchase that it may take longer and provide a dispatch estimate.
Refunds and Exchanges
Satisfaction is guaranteed. Authenticity is guaranteed.
I HAVE AN OPEN RETURN POLICY.
If your item is not to your satisfaction, simply return it within 7x days for a full refund of the original purchase price and shipping cost.
Return postage is the buyer's responsibility for any buyer-elected return. The buyer is not required to provide a reason for the return, but if you are unhappy with your purchase it helps me to help others if you are specific as possible.
If you find some reason to believe that your item is materially different than I have described it or defective in some substantive way, then I will reimburse your actual postage expense in returning it for a full refund at no cost to you other than the time it takes to give it to your postman or fedex delivery personnel. For large and/or heavy items, I may provide a prepaid Fedex label on my own account with which to send it back. Smaller items may require delivery to your local post office.
Additional policies and FAQs
CONSIGNMENTS ACCEPTED:
I encourage consignments of quality vintage toys and collectibles of at least 20 years of age, one piece or many. I have taken on entire collections as well as childhood lots from estates in the past. I am thorough, careful and meticulous. Your property is safe with me no matter what size it may be. My business name can be found in a few pricing guides, and I have consulted for guides in the past. I have access to thousands of sales records going back many years, and I cross-reference between actual sales history of several sources along with average asking prices of similar items currently available from other professional vendors on the internet. I also have strong connections to the collecting community which I can use to gather insight and opinion from serious collectors and experts the world over!

If you are too far away to bring your items to my location in northern New Jersey, you may ship it to me for a consignment estimate and examination.

To start the process, it helps if you can send a list of your items, values you wish to achieve if you have some idea, and images of your items. I am very selective and will give you an honest appraisal of whether or not I think I can sell the items and what I expect to get for them. If the items you have do not meet my standards, I may reject some items. So photos and specifics are always the best course of action before beginning a consignment.

Consignment split is 35/65, the owner retaining the larger portion of 65% of the item's value. If the sale price prior to shipping expenses exceeds $999.99, my rate is reduced to 25%, the owner retaining 76%.

I do not use one-cent or 5-cent pricing incentives ($9.95 as opposed to $10). My asking prices are always whole dollar amounts.

Consignment duration is 8 months (two revolutions of Etsy's standard 4-month listing period). This does not include processing time however, which may vary depending on the type, condition, and quantity of items you consign.

Consignors receive written contracts with a specific list of items and time-frame.
All expenses related to the advertisement of the items, storage, cleaning, organizing, and other incidental expenses are born by me, the seller consignee. The cost of transporting the items for consignment is born by the owner/consignor.

If you send items for inspection prior to approval or acceptance of consignment, return shipping will be the responsibility of the owner if the items are rejected.
If you send photos and detailed description of consignment items, and I accept them prior to delivery and they do not sell when the contract expires, I will cover the expense of returning them to you by mail or fedex if necessary.

Consignments that are unsold and unclaimed within 3 months of the contract expiration will be considered abandoned and become the absolute property of me and my store, to be disposed of as I see fit with no compensation due the consignor. It is of UTMOST importance that you take your items back after your consignment contract expires in 8 months if they items have not been sold. I cannot be responsible for long-term storage of unsold goods that are not under consignment contract.

I may invite some consignors to renew a contract at the end of the 8x months if unsold for another period of time that I specify to the buyer under certain conditions (heavy traffic such as holiday shoppers, extremely rare and desirable items), at my own discretion.


Any other questions regarding consignment, or if you think you have items which are a good fit for consignment in my virtual toy shop, drop me a line! and as always...

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!!
