Estate Sale Treasure: 1960s Toy Cars!

1960s Toy Cars: Estate Sale ($0.50 for all)

I was drawn to the mix of colors of these toy cars, which were in a bag at Sunday's estate sale for fifty cents! I love that the type of car is on each trunk- I think my favorite is the shapely little Fiat!

Upon further research into my little cars, I found that they were popular cereal box favors back in the 1960s. A little boy probably carefully built up this collection and there they sat in the estate sale house for 50 years. It's crazy to think that someday the items we buy now will be considered vintage. Will the estate salers of the future collect old nail polish bottles?

Anyway, it's safe to say I really like my new little car collection. :)
