We first want to say how thankful we are for each and every person who has stepped into our store of collections! George – the ‘collector of collections’ – loves sharing his many finds and all the stories that go with them. We wish everyone a Thanksgiving filled with peace, love, and gratitude for all that we have. Remember, it’s not about quantity, but quality. Well, except for George – the collector! (chuckle)
It’s been George’s tradition to decorate the weekend following Thanksgiving. But this year, the hundreds of dolls he acquired meant that he had to move a lot of things around ASAP!!! So the windows are decorated a couple of days early – yes, thanks, Barbara. And Christmas can be spotted throughout the store.
Dolls – a 3.78 Billion Dollar Industry in 2021
So stopping by Bahoukas might just be worth your while. The dolls in the window are beautiful. The hundreds in our store – well, come see them. Check out the braid on this Barbie! WOW!
You won’t believe the dolls and doll furniture available. From tiny porcelain dolls to 2 ft + Barbies, baby dolls, and American Girl Dolls are just a few of the many waiting for someone to give them some love. Seriously, stop by and pick one (please). They are priced for the collector and to purchase for a special child in your life. Definitely something for everyone.
Add to this a wonderful selection of furnishings and accessories for your dolls that include well-made high chairs, table, rocking cradles, cribs, chairs, and more. Seriously this is one special collection.
Next add puzzles!
Here are a few of our very collectible puzzles. But we encourage you to check our TOY section for more.

With the amazing Kentucky Derby Race featuring the winner, Rich Strike, we thought we’d share a few of our horse-y collectibles today! Just to remind you of this amazing race (who didn’t even get picked to run until the day before the race!), here’s the video from NBC Sports.
We have a few wonderful Horse Collectibles
From a number of toy items to beautiful figurines, horses always seem to inspire. Do you have a youngster that’s saving for their first horse? Check out this latest addition to our horse category!
The above figurines are the latest entries to our horse collection – including plastic, ceramic, bronze, Jadeite, and cast iron. Also check out the TOY AREA for a few more great choices of horse figures.

It looks like a bit of rain off and on this weekend. If you’re ducking the raindrops, stop in and visit. We’ll be watchin’ for ya (and yes, we even have a few great umbrellas you can purchase)!
It took three times around the shop to actually find all the ‘play horses!’ And we’re not even talking about the horse figurines, which we’ve posted in the past. These amazing rocking/springy/bouncy children’s horses come in all shapes and sizes. But don’t stop there.
We also have several wooden horses including this Fench Rocking Horse from the early 1900s. It’s not in the best of shape, but someone out there could create a beautiful upcycled pieced, we’re certain.
The other fun ‘horse-y’ items are the 1940s stuffed horse and jockey. These are just too cute.
You might notice in our slideshow two unique pieces. One is a stick horse which requires actually walking/running around pretending you’re riding a real horse. Hey, exercise that’s fun! The other is a huge wagon wheel. Why? I don’t know, just seemed to fit with horses. One is all metal; the other is wood with a flat metal tire. These are large wagon wheels at least 3 feet in diameter. Can you come up with a unique upcycle?
Stop in and think creatively. Whether you purchase one for your bouncing, active little one or you upcycle it in some way, we have a nice selection to choose from. Stop by and share your stories of playing on your bouncy, springy, rocking horse. Yessireeee… we’ll be watchin’ for ya!
