The winter sled with runners that we are familiar with today was made popular in 1889 as a Flexible Flyer!
We have several wooden sleds available at Bahoukas, including a slightly older one that is not pictured here. These are great to use and perfect for decorating with. Do you know the history of sleds? They started round the time of the pyramids. Since then, they’ve become quite sophisticated. Check out this Popular Mechanics slideshow. You’ll appreciate sleds even more!
With the weather colder and months ahead probably bringing us some snow days, you just might want to hurry in and grab one of these for under your Christmas tree. Hurry… the countdown to the big day is here!
Yes, we have ET. We also have phones!
ET was a favorite movie and probably still is popular for many. Of course this little guy is for sale. But so is this dial Candlestick phone, an American Classic reproduction. Yes, it does work! So if you’d like, we can package ET with the phone so he’ll be able to ‘phone home’!

#20 Gift Giving Idea offers some family-friend time… real time!
Do you remember setting up the croquet set, gathering friends and family and some refreshments, and settling in for an afternoon of just plain fun? If you do, then you may just want to check out this set!
Just in case you’ve forgotten how to play or how to set it up. CLICK HERE for details. You’ll be back in the groove in no time at all.
Sometimes the simpler games and being in the outdoors is just what a family or the neighborhood needs to bring laughter and play back into your life. And an old-fashioned croquet game is a great start.
Seriously, any age can play … though you may have to bend the rules a wee bit for of the youngest. But be prepared to have a good time. Add a picnic and you have a day’s good weather activity.
We look forward to seeing you at Bahoukas Antique Mall and Beer MuZeum!
