DIECAST BARGAINS AND BOUNTY AT BIG GUYS HUT
Zernies will find a hearty welcome from stand owners Hector Guzman, Senior army veteran and pipe fitter, and auto expert Hector Guzman, Junior, father and son from Collegeville, Pa. Under the bright lights at Stand 136, (near Door 22) you can sort through a large assortment of hot wheels, antique collectibles, old typewriters, radios. Cameras, old tools, and football cards.
Collectors of miniature boxcars can talk story about the history of these charming miniatures that originated in London, manufactured by a British toymaker named Lesney. In 1956, the company released a traditional London red double decker bus, and a London Trampcar from 1907. That began a charming shopping cycle, a lot of grandfathers and Dads started buying single cars here, including muscle cars and even a dairy truck for their sons and grandsons. The biggest competition came from Hot Wheels, founded by Mattel toymaker Elliot Handler with built-for-speed diecast miniatures in 1968. The Guzmans have a large collection–a dream for collectors and children alike.
Most diecast cars sell individually from $2 and up to $50, more if they are from serial numbered collections. HectorGuzman Senior is selling his own large collection of VW miniatures.
Vintage bicycles are also for sale, including a couple of the rare Schwinn tandem two seaters.
At Big Guys Hut, there is a wonderful bin full of cars for your kids to sort through, and prices begin with 50 cent cars. Visit and Enjoy! Big Guys Hut, Stand 136 in the West Wing, Zerns Farmers Market, near Door 22. Stop by this weekend!
