The baby who rode in this antique stroller sure rode in style!

I just came from the auction preview at -

Bertoia's Auctions in Vineland NJ is the top toy auction house in the country. Just walking through their showroom to preview the items is amazing. They have a big, state of the art auction house and beautiful showroom. Very professional, and yet they still have the feel of a family business, giving special attention to the collectors that they deal with.

This upcoming auction is the first of several where they will be selling the toy car related collection of Donald Kaufman. Mr. Kaufman has the largest and rarest toy car related collection in the world. 1000s of pieces (there will be almost 1500 pieces in the first auction alone) ranging from tinker toy sized to large pedal cars 5-6 feet long. Also trains, airplanes, advertising, even car related antique Valentines.

I went with my Dad to check out the preview, and we were not disappointed. There are just so many cool things there. I snapped a photo of this antique baby carriage, made out of wicker, to look like an old style car. It's very cute in person. Made by Haywood Wakefield. And yes, you actually pushed a baby in that.

A sewing basket shaped like a car -

One of the large standing Valentines -

Very cool Hubley Circus wagon with revolving monkey cage (the estimate is $30,000.00!!!!!!)
