I visit there every year mate! Its a great little shop because very few know about it!

Quality little shop, I work down that end of town, so I know most of the people own there, the Vaults is a hidden treasure! He doesn't have a website and isn't on any forums, despite the fact I keep telling him he should be! But I think he set up a facebook page, I send you a link if he did.

Excellent thread & one that looks like it will be of great use to the community & should boost trade for some of these little know shops, there is a great little shop in Leicester (UK) Run by a nice chap called joe who you may or may not have run in to at the NEC, his shop is on facebook for updated stock but I don't think he has his own page.

http://leicestervintage.weebly.com/ for some info

There used to be 2 others in Leicester as well but not sure if they are still running as I have moved away from the town, love it where I am but its up shit creak for vintage collection.

Nice one Frank. as well as Leicester vintage (Joe is a top bloke by the way) there is snoopers paradise in Brighton. There also used to be a guy who rented space in Gloucester docks selling vintage. Used to be called wattos grotto.

There is also time trek which I believe is a bricks and mortar shop.

Chris.

I remember visiting a shop years ago in Egham, Surrey called Twilight Zone. It was a small shop but it had an impressive amount of vintage moc's. Does anyone know if the shop is still exists?

Lol. I remember that shop too. It was wicked. There was also the toy box in shepperton but Simon mainly sold loose figures. He also used to sit in the shop and smoke all day so the figures stank. A nice guy though and he got my loose collection up and running back in about 1997 or so.

I'm not local to the area. I used to know someone who went to university there & they introduced me to the shop when a few of us visited one weekend.

I was in Vegas last week and stumbled across a new store while wandering around the Fremont Street Experience. They are called the Las Vegas Toy Shack and have a website here http://lasvegastoyshack.com/

They had a few vintage MOC figures and a few ships/playsets. The prices were on the higher side which is typical of a brick and mortar store, but I'll be going back on other trips. The thing that really got me was the Flagg playset they had on display. I had never seen one in person, knew it was big, but didn't know it was that big. Laughing

Whoa! One of my mates and his brother had the F14 Tomcat planes and eventually gave them to me and my brother when we where kids, and Jesus they where big, so to sit to of them on the deck and still have loads of room is truly awesome. Now that's a real playset! Very Happy

If any one knows or can find a shop in Thailand (Bangkok), I would be more than interested as I spend much of my holiday time there !!!
