When my kids were little, we lived in northeastern Ohio. I used to enjoy perusing The Garage Sale Store on Mentor Avenue in downtown Mentor, Ohio. The owner bought leftover items that did not sell at area yard sales. On one such visit to his establishment, I spent $5 on a Cowboys and Indians playset for my kids to enjoy.
The set was almost intact, with nearly all of the 16 Cowboys and 16 Native Americans present, as well as the entire fort and most of the accessories. Here is the original advertisement for this playset:
As you can set, when new, the set sold for $13.99 in the 1970s.
My boys enjoyed playing with this set, as well as my old Fort Apache and Fort Cheyenne from my childhood.
