Marilyn Burns was a collector of O'Neill Kewpies for over 43 years. Her mother worked in a second hand store and owned a few Kewpies, which started her off on what later became a lifelong quest. But now she's ready to sell. She's bringing composition, celluloid (from ½" to 24" high), a pocket watch holder, pin cushions, plates, prints, sand buckets, a tea set with German soldiers on it, magazine ads, flour sifters, comic pages, magazine ads, a clothespin bag, jewelry and sand buckets.

In 1907, Rose O'Neill, already a successful magazine illustrator in her early 30s, left the East Coast and retreated to her family's beautiful but rustic home in the Ozark mountains to recover from her second divorce. In 1909, a "Ladies Home Journal" editor asked her to come up with Cupid-like character illustrations to accompany some verse. O'Neill said that she spent so much time pondering these creatures, which became the Kewpies, they appeared to her in a dream.
O'Neill's Kewpies, which she named for "little Cupid, spelling it with a K because it seemed funnier," were an instant hit, and she drew them for "Woman's Home  Companion" and "Good Housekeeping," as well as other magazines and advertisers for more than 25 years. Because O'Neill was a savvy business woman, the Kewpies made her a millionaire, and allowed her to expand Bonniebrook into a sprawling, modern mansion with electricity and plumbing.

Marilyn and her collection are located in Row O, Booth 559.

BRING YOUR FAMILY TREASURES (or garage sale finds) 

The show hires accredited experts that would normally cost you $125 an hour to tell you what you have and what it's worth. At the show, for $7 per object, you'll get a verbal market evaluation. The word 'value' has many definitions, ranging from insurance (replacement) value to forced liquidation (you need to pay the rent and have to sell that item today). The value that our experts give you is what your item would bring if you sold it in a retail setting such as at a show, over the web or in a shop. Vintage items typically depend on supply and demand. Certain things go in and out of favor.
