Hills Department Store

eBay Archeology: Hills Department Store Model!

Ok, so this isn’t a typical eBay Archeology post since I’m not showcasing something that is actually old. But holy crap how could I not bring this sweet piece of merchandise to your attention?!?

It’s a 1/160 scale model of an old Hills department store. The listing says it measures 4 inches by 10 inches. I’m not sure how that measures up to buildings from Christmas village sets or anything, but I don’t think I’d care. If I had a village, I’d certainly plop this bad boy right in the middle of town.

But as it stands, I’m probably going to pick up one of these to just put on display on a shelf somewhere in my home. I saw this thing and memories once again came flooding back. I like the thoughts of having it around just for those days you’re feeling down, you can just sit and stare at this thing and probably start feeling better right away.

It sells for $29.99 + $5.95 shipping. That’s a steal in my opinion. You can view the listing here if you’re interested in getting one.

  1. Long time reader! Just in case you want to find accessories, 1:160 is what N scale model railroaders use. So anything you find at hobby shops or online that is “N scale” would be appropriately sized to go with it.

    1. Oh cool. After I saw this comment, I searched “N Scale” on Amazon and found a lot of cool stuff. Like a 50-pack of N scale automobiles. That would be perfect to create the parking lot for this Hills store. I’m not a railroad guy, but I do kind of like the idea of just building a town of this kind of stuff. It’s something I’m going to look into. Maybe make an ’80s themed town with stuff like this Hills and a skating rink and other assorted stuff that is hard to find these days.

      And thanks for chiming in as a long time reader. I always love to hear from folks who enjoy all this old stuff I ramble about.
