Looking to make some cash or to just clear out some junk? Got an old garage or barn packed with junk? I am a collector of old "stuff". I am by no means a dealer or professional, just a hobby collector of "man-tiques". I enjoy picking through old storage areas for items I collect. They end up in my garage or man cave. Some I restore, others I leave as is. I will buy items I already have and sell them or trade them to support my hobby. This is a list to give you an idea, it is not all inclusive.
Hand Tools -- I collect primarily anything from 1900-1970.
Hand Saws -- Anything old, unique, large two man saws as well.
License Plates -- Any year, any states. The more the better, the older the better
Signs -- Anything with local history, hand painted, Dairy, Agriculture, automotive, Gas or Oil.
Gumball Machines -- Anything older in just about any condition.
Jeep Vehicles -- Primarily CJ Vehicles of 70's and 80's, Parts or Advertising
Oil Cans -- Empty or full, Cardboard, Glass or Metal
Articulating Lights-- Drafting lights, anything mid-century or unique
Industrial -- Storage, tables, carts anything made with quality metal and wood.
Street Signs -- Highway, Road, Older embossed preferred but anything unique
Beer crates -- Any beer crate that is wooden or Pepsi, Coke Crates
What I Sell
I do not sell anything that I would not keep myself. If it is junk and has no value then I will not buy it in the first place. Typically I sell items that I have duplicates of or occasionally I will acquire something that does not interest me.
Looking for Something?
If you are looking for a particular item to buy or trade please let me know. I am constantly on the hunt for items throughout Northern Illinois.
