    Wanted: Avanzino Disneyland Shadowboxes (Various) for Buy and/or Trade

    My wife and I are huge Dave Avanzino fans

    We actually went to church with him and have a few custom pieces (shhh, don't tell!). We have a few of the Disneyland Shadowboxes and would love to complete our collection, namely some of the "50th Anniversary" shadowboxes.

    I am willing to buy them and/or trade them. I am a cast member in Anaheim and have access to LOTS of cast member exclusive deals and merchandise that I am willing to trade if you are interested. Otherwise, I'm simply willing to buy them for a fair price. If you have any that you might be interested in selling and/or know anyone, please pass along the word!

    Initially I am looking for the following lands:
    -Fantasyland
    -Tomorrowland
    -New Orleans
    (If you have others, I'm still interested!)

    Thanks so much

    BTW - For any other Avanzino fans, he is releasing a new piece this week themed around the Disneyland Railroads. I would also be willing to pick one of these up for you for trade. Here's the info:

    I believe they both went for $850 each. These are both very limited editions. Mara is #2 of 10. And I believe YoHo was one of 25.

    The only piece I'm looking for is Tower of the Four Winds. Circa 2001 edition size 3.
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!

    Hey Janell! Initially I'm just looking for the "lands," (need Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Adventureland, Critter Country, New Orleans). BUT, Dave actually made a few Nightmare Before Christmas pieces, which are you referring to?

    I just saw this thread so I'm a little behind the times

    You're probably already doing this, but I'd set up Saved Searches in ebay so you get emails when they come up, which isn't very often, unfortunately. They usually go for $300+ for the ones you've listed, but I do sometimes see Adventureland for a more reasonable $100-$150. FL, TL, CC & NOS are usually pricier. Be sure to look under various spellings. After years of trying (literally) I finally found an acceptable deal on a TL box simply because the listing didn't have "Avanzino" in the description. No one else even bid on it. I had a "tomorrowland shadowbox" search set up and it found it. It was still $150 and had a broken letter so I had to get into the box and fix it, but I'm happy with the result.

    Hope that helps. It's a great collection but tough to complete, at least it was for me. It took 3 1/2 years on ebay to get them for "reasonable" prices.

    Re: Wanted: Avanzino Disneyland Shadowboxes (Various) for Buy and/or Trade

    Hi again! Just though I would renew this thread to see if anyone has any updates on any of the 50th Anniversary Avanzino Shadowboxes! Anyone looking to sell? Know of anyone that might want to sell? Know where I could look?

    I've been scouring eBay with no luck for quite awhile now, seems to have gone silent on Avanzino stuff lately.

    I DID get the new Railroad piece and I have to say it's the best yet! More detail than any piece, awesome! If interested in a trade, let me know and I can pick you one up

    Any info is always appreciated, thanks!

    I know this isn't listed in your request list, so you probably have it already. But, in case you don't, I noticed there's a Frontierland up on ebay right now.

    You're welcome. I know what a pain it is to try to complete a collection, so I'll keep my eyes out for you too.
