"Fly Me To The Moon..."

The Moon Marble Company that is!
Located in Bonner Springs Kansas, you can read all about them from they're website found HERE these people specialize in making art-glass marbles, As well as selling factory made marbles and a plethora of retro merchandise!  Im telling you these folks have everything from marbles to vintage/reproduction party games to novelties such as "squirrel underwear" and A cutlery clock...along with everything else imaginable!
 I could have spent a fortune in there but I settled for a grand some of $40.00  and that got me the following...
A retro 1940's "Pin the tail on the donkey" game, a reproduction tin Zeppelin wind up toy, a zombie brain jello mold (hehe for Halloween this years theme is going to be killer...), some picture postcards, some green glass alligators...

I very nearly bought a "cigarette dispenser" its that one you've see in movies in the shape of a donkey and when you press its ears down the cigarette pops out of the donkeys... well as you can see in the picture... had it been metal I would have swooped it up but alas it was just a plastic remake. (I still may ended buying one, even though I don't smoke I just think one belongs at the Casablanca).  As I've said I could have very easily spent all my money there, maybe next time haha! If your in the area (or even if your not) I highly suggest you give this place a try there's something for everyone and I guarantee you'll leave feeling nostalgic, even if the things aren't from your childhood you'll wish they were!

Novelty items! GREAT SCOTT, the sheer volume of novelty items! I think I want the (literally) heart shaped jello mold the most.
