One of my best buys has to be this old Graco dealership work bench that I bought from an Oldsmobile dealer that was closing its doors! I've looked at several and this was the best one I've ever found!
One other item has to be right up there too, because of its significance to me! This Texaco Ethyl globe is as nice as I've ever seen and even though I had to buy it to get it, the fact that my good friend was willing to sell it to me is "HUGE"!

I was very lucky to find a few things I have been after for a while, here are a few of my BOTY:

I was on a long search for a Esso Heating oil Watch Dog With original Paint. I finally found one 20 miles from my house...It was in the attic of an old oil company that sold esso oil.



Picked up this early window was a great project and find for the year:



This miller sign was the cleanest one I have seen looks like it was hung but for a very short time:



The most valuable commodity I know of is information-Wall Street

Had to have this sign when I saw it. Thanks to Shipers for telling me about it and making sure I stepped up to the plate and bought it


Originals only for me. Always looking for Simpson oil, Super A, and MFA oil cans and globes.

Was a pretty quiet year for me, though I did score this awesome porcelain and light bulb sign.

Still looking for that Union 76 ball
And I collect big old porcelain neon signs

Congrats to all, your items are great!

All the items are "top notch", IMO.....

(oslosteve, your items as always are fantastic... IMO)

(porcelain-neon, your General Tire neon is outstanding)
