TOYS & VINTAGE – A NEW CHAPTER IN THE BERNESE OBERLAND – update january 2022
For almost a year now, a friend and I have been building on a new chapter in the Bernese Oberland, more precisely in Erlenbach in the Simmental, not farther than 10km from Spiez and 20km from Thun, 45km or 32 minutes from Berne. In today’s so called Krone residential and commercial building, formerly a hotel with roots going back to the 18th century, we were able to rent the old hall. When you have a great passion for toys and also for furniture, sooner or later there are space problems, which are now resolved, at least partly.
Now we have the opportunity to present our things there. We ourselves take great pleasure in it and want to inspire others as well. We have all kinds of toys …

Update May 2020 – dear amateurs of antique model cars and toys
Regarding my friend’s collection, see below, I recently put cars from him on Ricardo (Swiss online platform) again, but in the future I will mainly make offers here. It can’t be what has been done to this platform for years, in the sense of “Ricardo will be new” but in fact everything is getting much worse. I could cite dozens of examples. Already only the product search (there is no reliable text search anymore!) or again and again on Sundays and then especially in the evening there is a timeout (i.e. platform 100% down), at Ricardo nobody notices anything for almost an hour. Kind of stressful for the cats who act as decoration for the error messages. The breakdowns result in models being sold at a quarter price, Ricardo does not credit fees, but offers a Platinum Boost for a hundred francs, which is supposed to be used to advertise offers, even if the average item is sold for 30 francs … (…) so be it. The main thing is that everything is new. – click here to go to the eintire article –
I am temporarily disgusted with Ricardo auctions, not primarily because of the results. I will comment on this later. Make me offers for the items not yet sold. Click on the links below. 10.02.2020

Dear Friends of scaled Cardreams
II am especially addressing the friends of diecast and more! I started this website one and a half years ago. Actually, I still prefer to sell my models at fairs and to talk to people, to share the passion. Nevertheless, it’s hard to get around the internet nowadays, especially when things have to move forward. The whole thing is also fun for me as an archive; if the magic is over, you still have something to look at. Nevertheless, I haven’t done anything here for a year, apart from marking a car as sold now and then.
But now a friend has reactivated me. In the near future, I will be selling most of his collection on his behalf, with a focus on Renault 4s – even the Pope drives one! – Dinky Toys, Mercury, Solido, Norev and Joustra. I will also place models on ricardo.ch and possibly tutti.ch. – click for the whole article –

Playing is what I missed out on when I was a child, instead going through the parlour at 200. That’s probably why I started this one 30 years later. In the category “to play on” – you will find toys that are suitable for further use and are usually also low in price. More will follow soon. These have passed by my place. My focus is clearly on high quality diecast, but these also have their place. This is certainly not for profit, if no one wants them, I give them away to children or take them to the scrap yard. It is a tribute to these toys that I offer them here. After all, they did exactly what they were meant to do, and quite a few of them still do several times as many hours as the throw-aways of today. Assuming, of course, that children will make do with or enjoy something old. – 30.04.20click here – you will find toys that are suitable for further use and are usually also low in price.
