Okay, so my salt and pepper shakers my be the only thing riding around in this truck. And eggs. I was so excited to get my little truck that I had it deliver some eggs to my other blog.
I first saw this vintage style goodie at a blog by Donna at Funky Junk Interiors . It was love at first sight. But not just for me. Several people were wanting to know where she found it, which happened to be Costco. I don't think it was recently and I don't have a Costco membership. So, I resorted to the Internet. This is a Ford F100 die cast model truck at 1:24 scale. It is about 7 inches long. About the only part that doesn't move is the tail gate, so my new salt and pepper shakers wouldn't fit. Fortunately I had this pair, which are the small kind used for multiple placements on a table. With shipping this truck was around $21. A larger scale model was available (1:18 I think), but I couldn't bring myself to pay around $40 for a toy truck. And, this size fits nicely on my kitchen table.
How many pictures can one possibly take of a toy truck? Quite a few. If one is me.
