Hello and welcome to our website. We are Mardi and Stan Timm, novelty historians and we have the largest collection of novelties in the world.
Together we are writing two books; one on Johnson Smith and Company, a novelty catalog company that has been in business in the United States since 1914; and one on H. Fishlove, a great novelty company and a Johnson Smith supplier. They created such well known novelties as Yakity-Yak the talking teeth, Spectaculars the huge sun glasses, and much more.
Please feel free to contact us for more information about these wonderful companies. We intend to have our books completed in ebook format this fall. Watch for these offerings.
Please browse our website and enjoy it. We hope you will have some fun and maybe even learn something.
