Tessie talk doll and more! - What sold! - Tom Ray's Retro Vlog

I take a look at some of the things that sold from my vintage collection today.

I got this Tessie Talk ventriloquist doll from my collection that sold online. Plus some Garfield stuff, illustrated children's books from the 50s and the 60s, a Roy Rogers Rodeo program, Woody Woodpecker doll, and many more vintage toys and things I got in my quest for items I can flip for a profit.

And at the end, I show one of my webcomic diary pages.

This is a video of my daily life since I decided to sell collectibles and pop-culture items I collect on eBay, Mercari, and Facebook Marketplace to help support my art career instead of taking on freelance work.

More vintage pop-culture items available in my eBay Store

Artwork for the original Candy Land game by Milton Bradley from 1955.

I have a vintage Candy Land game from 1955 by Milton Bradley and I was about to sell it so I thought I would add it to my personal art history course concept I've been doing . I'm going to try and see if I can find out how this game was created, designed and why? Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949.
