I have finally decided to give up my vintage croquet set and sell it on etsy.com/mistressofmerlin. It had been gathering dust in the garage for many, many years. I don’t even remember the last time we took it out in the yard, but I know it was before my son was in high school, and now he’s been out of college for 2 years.
I love the bright primary colors and the signs of wear on this croquet set. I’ve always had a fondness for old toys, things from before the 60’s, and as I think of , before Barbie, before everything went plastic.
Old board games can have some of the coolest graphics and type styles. I once had a Ouija Board from the 40’s that I sold to an antique store. It was not made by Disney, but the designer had used Disney looking characters from Snow White to illustrate the “talking board”.
