Vintage Bones
Just posted more than a dozen sets of vintage bones. Possibly the largest selection on the planet. Order now while they last!

Your Shooting Star and Whamdiddle Headquarters
Largest selection of Shooting Star and Whamdiddle bones in the universe. Browse our excellent variety of Shooting Star and Whamdiddle bones. If you can't find them here, then you won't find them anywhere. Matched pairs...matched sets too!

How to Get Matched Sets
We always attempt to ship matched pairs and sets. In fact, we are about the only shop that routinely matches pairs and sets. As a practical matter, the best way to get a matched set is to order two or more pairs at the same time. That way, even if our pre-matched sets are gone, we cull through the bin to find as good a match as possible. But if you order one pair today and another pair next week, how well that set will match is a gamble. So if you want a matched set, be sure to order multiple pairs at the same time. No guarantee how well a set will match. But at least we do make the effort.
