Introducing the Five Guys!

Whenever I go out on the hunt for stuff for the booth, there are certain things I like to look for.  Among them are items featuring a group of characters which has been very good to me over the past year and a half.  I refer to them as "The Five Guys."  Sometimes, I even call them "my" five guys.

Items featuring the guys tend to sell really quickly for me.  In no certain order, they are:

Mickey Mouse

Winnie the Pooh


That would be any version of the Caped Crusader, not just Adam West.  I used this pic because the 60's TV show is my favorite Batman and, in my opinion, the best one ever.  (Except for the Brave and Bold cartoon.)



Got a bunch of new and vintage Snoopys (Snoopies?) in right now, in fact.

For a while there, I was adding to the list any time I hit a new character gold mine, but I had to stop because it was getting too long to remember.  I cut it back to the original five, but did leave room for what are now my unofficial sixth and seventh guys:

Scooby Doo

Bart Simpson

He's a cheeky boy, our Bart, but he sells well.

Then there are those whom I have a fondness for, but they just don't sell as well as the Main Guys do.  They are the Honorary Guys:


Bugs Bunny

And, finally, what about the ladies?  Let's hear it for Girl (Sales) Power!

Wonder Woman


Snow White

Sleeping Beauty

Actually, the Disney Princesses do really well, when I can find things that haven't been played to death.  The Amazon Princess?  Not so much.  But I include her out of my own admiration.  Sometimes, you gotta do that.
