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 bought a bunch of stuff this year but these are probably my 2 favorite buys of the year.

Here is my best Quart of the year.



I also bought this Rack at Iowa Gas.

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:

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