  • Thrift shop finds

    There is a particular chain of Thrift stores here and they often have older Majorette diecast cars. Most of my Majorette collection is from this store.

    Here are some older castings I found on Boxing Day. I am guessing they are from the early 80's.

    No. 233 Mercedes Trax Publics missing the rear canopy.

    I also found a Sonic Flashers NYPD EMS ambulance and a No. 264 Alpine A 310 police car. I posted pics of them in the Apparatus bay.

    Nice finds. Especially like the M-B DOKA cab lorry.

      I rarely, ever find Majorettes in my neck of the woods, and honestly, to find them in that shape is luck. I guess they were either more widely available and/or more popular in Canada at that time. In my area, I remember Ames selling them in 1999/2000. Never bought a one--was mostly into bigger toys as a 3-4 year old.

      What I like best about the loader is its metal bucket/arms. Most makers use soft plastic. I have a red one with a V snow-plow in place of the bucket.
