My name is David Moncrief – and
I’ve been known as the ‘Texas
Toy Man’ for over 20 years. My
wife and I moved from Houston
about 11 years ago to a small
town of less than 1,000 people
from the 2,000,000+ people in
Houston – talk about a change!
While living in the country isn’t for
everyone, we’ve made a wonderful life for ourselves and to this day know it was the best decision of our lives.
Our neighbors aren’t close by, but we know them all – unlike when we were in the city. And, they are all willing to help out in a time of need. I have found that living in the country you come to depend on your neighbors whether it’s for help moving something, needing a nut and bolt, or just some good conversation.
Although basically retired, I am
fortunate to be able to work on
the Internet – selling, trading and
sometimes buying toys. A new project
I’m working on is to put toy price
guides up on my website Texas Antique
Mall. When I’m not surfing the
Net you’ll find me in my Red Barn
where I spend a lot of time working
with my tools. I enjoy tinkering with anything mechanical and have a shop full of any and everything a tinkerer could dream of. Also enjoy riding my tractor and just sitting on the porch watching the gorgeous sunsets we have.
My wife – Jan – and I feel we are the luckiest couple on earth to have found our little bit of Heaven and the Good Lord willing – we look forward to many more years out here in the middle of our hay field.
