This weekend we’ve visited the Market Road Antiques in St. Jacobs Country. Beautiful drive with excellent weather.

And, we’ve managed to find a cool World War II era toy, a dexterity puzzle game from A.C. Gilbert – Radio Tube Trick. Made probably in the 40s and found in excellent condition for its age, and with its original glass top. The trick is to get all 4 tubes into their sockets.

If you are wondering what to be on the lookout for during your next antiques trip, Dexterity Puzzles made during the 30s and 40s are highly collectible and enjoyable. They will range in price from the low $20s to over $100, depending on condition, rarity, and subject matter (we recently paid $125 on a dexterity puzzle depicting Charles Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight!).

There are a quite a few other antique markets and stores in the St. Jacobs area. You can easily find them, plan your route, and hit the road with Canada’s First Trip Planner for Antiques:
