Buying and selling vintage collectibles banner


They may be large or small, made from tin, wood, plastic or plush – but no matter the materials or format, these are the toys that have brought joy to the world!

Back to the Past Collectibles has a fondness for toys and oddities from years long ago – from mechanical tin robots and rocket ships to modern Transformers, model kits, and board games. Even lunchboxes, which may have housed that liverwurst sandwich you didn’t want to eat, were fun to have at school if they were from Star Wars or Planet of the Apes!

Back to the Past Collectibles is the premier auction house for vintage collectibles and memorabilia of all kinds!

We offer treasures from both our own warehouse and other consignors from across the country.

Main event auctions are held in our physical showroom (COVID-safety permitting) and are broadcast online via, so you can attend whether or not you’re from our local neighborhood. Most auction events have a 1-hour inspection and registration window, so you can take your time looking over the lots.

The buzz you’ve heard is real. It’s a lot of fun to attend our onsite live events, so we invite you to come and check it out!

If you’re unable to join us in person on auction day, we highly recommend using Proxibid to place absentee bids and attend online.
