Hello everyone and TGIF!
Today is an eye-opening visit to Toyz 2nd Chance in Glen Burnie.

Here’s why: the world of secondhand toys has exploded. All the toys that we, as parents, got badged to buy for our children are now worth a lot of money. For example, my son is a huge fan of Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon. We could go to Target and buy action figures for $3 each. Now, buying a “lightly used” number can go up to $50 or more. Whether you’re talking about GI Joe, Transformers, or Star Wars, just to name a few movies, the collectibles market has never been more vibrant.
My son Jake lives in Manhattan, and I was due to visit about a month ago. While my wife, Jake’s girlfriend, and her mother went to see a show, he took me on a long walk to meet his troupe. On the way, we stopped by a shopping at Union Square called Forbidden Planet. It has collections, comics and such. He wanted to show me the price of all the things he’d grown up with, the toys we’d gotten rid of over the years. It is purely mind blowing.

Honestly, I thought, “Okay, this is a New York thing.” He quickly let me know it was a “thing” around the country and assured me that Charm City had its fair share of collectible stores. After a bit of investigation, I found out he was right. You don’t need the original boxes anymore – they repackage. And if you have something that you think might be worth more than the $3 you paid for, head over to 2nd Chance Toys and find out. You may be surprised by what lies you have around.
TGIF, have a safe weekend and find some fun!
