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.

eBay Archaeology: The A-Team

We might not always realize it or think of it, but eBay is a wonderful place full of nostalgia.  I’d dare to say that just about anything from your childhood that you can remember, you can find there.  Just pick a toy, a book, a movie, or whatever else you can think of, and plug it into a search on eBay and you’ll be transported back in time.  It’s what I like to call eBay archeology.  And today, I’m doing that very thing and digging up some cool old memories by looking at old merchandise from the hit TV series, The A-Team.  Let’s see what we find!

A-Team Action Figure Set from Galoob
Man did I love these things!  I had all of these figures, but I actually had the action adventure playset that came with all of the figures, plus a ton of accessories like tents, a boat, more guns, and much more than I can remember off the top of my head.  These figures weren’t as well crafted as Hasbro’s G.I. Joe figures, but they were the same size and the A-Team fit nicely as a special forces unit within the Joe ranks.  This unopened pack currently has a hefty price tag of $175.  If you’re so inclined, you can click the link under the picture to go straight to the listing.
