got a tip from a friend...it took 3+ hours to get there... It was worth it, at least I think so...yes I'm gonna try to get some of it or alot of it. The guy has been gathering this stuff up since the '50's. He was a great man and we had a great visit...and like myself has a great sense of humor.
Wooden phone booths, stacks of nos signs, globes, amusement park rides, vending machines etc...you had to walk sideways thru his warehouse..It will take at least a full week to go through everything. He want's to start getting rid of it....I didn't take enough pictures. Yes I am going back.



more pictures coming

Paddy,
You are luckier than a three peckered goat.
I can bring cash and trailer down with a day's notice. Send me some pictures and I will be on the way.
By the way, last time you got in a old bulk plant you did not show the pictures of your rare finds, but I got to see them.
You seem to have hit the mother load on oil and gas and soda and milk and amusement rides.
let's be partners there good buddy.
D.B. is to far away to help. And send pictures of rest and I will help you post.....maybe...

Maurice, it will have to be a big trailer....It would take at least eight 18 wheelers....stuff is just laying around everywhere. Boxes of stuff everywhere....He can't remember whats in them anymore....lot's of display cases full! When he filled those cases up slap full he would shove it all into boxes and start over again...been doing that for decades!!!!
It was fun just talking about how he got this stuff.

Who needs a 401K? This is the guy's version of it.

So your plan is to get everything, I hope...
