 VINELAND, N.J. - Auctioneers have learned to cope with a myriad of meteorological challenges year round, from bone-chilling blizzards to terrifying tornados, but the last thing Jeanne Bertoia and her team expected to deal with over the weekend of April 16-17 was a volcanic eruption. A cloud of ash drifting from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland, which had erupted twice in less than amonth, enshrouded much of Europe in the 48 hours prior to Bertoia’s sale of the Donald Kaufman collection, part III. The volcanic ash forced the cancellation of many flights and disrupted air traffic across northern Europe, ...
is, specifically, one of several toy shows held throughout the United States (and around the world), usually on an annual basis, that is exclusively devoted to the exhibition, for sale, of antique toys, dolls and collectible paraphernalia. Toy shows are generally regional in nature, and cater to a certain geographic area of the country. The larger shows, such as the Miami Antique Toy Show and the Chicago Toy Show encompass a broader clientele. It is not uncommon for both dealers and collectors from across the country and around the world to attend these shows. The Miami Toy Show typically attracts guests from South America, ...

Toy Collector Magazine | Vintage Toy Auctions, News and Features
 VINELAND, N.J. - If there were a World Cup for antique toys, the name engraved on the trophy quite likely would be that of K-B Toys co-founder and toy collector extraordinaire Donald Kaufman.

Top 10 Barbie dolls of all time
With an impossibly tiny waist, perfectly coiffed locks and an impeccable sense of style, there is only one fashion icon that requires first name only: Barbie. And after 50 years of thrilling both little girls and adult collectors alike, Mattel’s teenage fashion doll remains a golden girl in the hearts and minds of many. It’s not known exactly how many incarnations Barbie has had in five decades, but what is indisputable is how successful the brand has been. The doll is an estimated $2 billion a year property for Mattel. Keeping a fresh perspective while maintaining the image and integrity of the brand has been a balancing act ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Join the treasure hunt in Ontario
Most people have one or more esoteric items hiding in the back of their closet, or stored for years in the attic, or collecting dust in the garage. Maybe the coin collection dad started when he was a kid and never finished, maybe grandma's set of Depression-era glass or great-uncle so-and-so's Tonka trucks that he used to zoom around the living room carpet. It's items such as these that people hesitate to throw away. There's that nagging feeling that these treasures from yesteryear could be worth something. This weekend Inland Empire residents will get their chance to find out. From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

85.06.04: Toys Are Us
Almost everyone has had a special toy as a child, and tucked away in a corner of the memory is a special feeling for that toy. For a certain time in one�s life, a toy was the key to a private world of innocent play, of mystery or adventure, and of pleasure. It was a time when the player controlled the world, making the rules, determining the results, playing at being grown up. As adults, we can step back into our childhood by once again holding, feeling, and seeing a favorite plaything. The mind can recall the moments of excitement and concentration, the power of control, and sometimes a disassociation with reality that the toys ...

I have reason to be concerned that source code I am turning in for programming projects at school might be being burgled for the professor's own purposes. I would like to protect my code some way. I am thinking this is a great place for DRM to actually be useful. Anyone have experience with this? What are my options? I'm taking a road trip through the southwest, and I'd like to see places with an interesting backstory or that show you "behind the scenes." I'm interested in places with political, economic, environmental, or industrial significance. Can you recommend some? nikeshoefilter: Where can I find ...
