The old San-Val website included two items I cannot find. Two of these were the fortune teller and the popcorn stand. Anyone know where these items can be obtained?

There's a fellow who does a lot of business on Ebay selling all sorts of off G-scale figures & accessories. Goes by the vendor handle LarrryG. (I think it's three "R"s -- might be four!). He's likely to have the pieces you mentioned.

(Not affiliated, other than as a satisfied customer etc. etc...)

I have thoroughly checked his Ebay store.  In fact, I have bought a lot of his products. The goods I am looking for are not there either.   I'm still looking . . .

I think that these may have just been refrigerator magnets with the magnets removed.

There are specialty places that sell refrigerator magnets, as well as places like Bed, Bath, & Beyond that also seem to have a wide assortment. Probably also available on the 'net if you are looking for the right thing (i.e., specialty magnets, or such).

All that and now it turns out these products may be nothing more than refrigerator magnets?

I am deflated.  I'll keep a lookout for them in the local (200 miles away) Wal Mart and Bed, Bath & Beyond (a brand-new store about to open in Anchorage). Thanks for the heads-up.

You might email Al ([email protected]) and ask him if he still has any, or where he got them...

Thanks for the suggestion and the email link. I have now done just that.

Found the popcorn stand on line and before I ordered it asked how big the man was inside. She said "maybe about 1" tall". Ask questions. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/unsure.gif

The Lemax site says the fortune teller is 4-3/4" tall, and the popcorn/cotton candy thing is 5-1/8" tall...only question is whether that is the product itself or the box it comes in....I vaguely remember seeing the cotton candy stand at Pool City when they were selling Christmas stuff. And IIRC it was the size of the people, not the size of the houses...so it should work.
