...found this original Koolmotor ad (dated 1930) for sale online. $3 shipped. Used the wife and her eye for style and got it matted and framed today. Love how it came out, and it will look nice in the office...

(I know a lot of you probably have news clippings and articles in your collection, would love to see how you have it setup & displayed, so share if you can)

Not the greatest pic, but one of the neatest maps. Artist is the iconic Peter Helck.

Dave, love that station picture... and really like how the matte around it is in a Sinclair looking color theme.

Would really like to find some original artwork like that with a Cities station!

This shell map is from my Home town, also the small porcelain thermometer is from the same station.

Here is a picture of the Shell station the map and Thermo came from, it still stands today but is sitting empty. I would love to buy it.

You can also spend a fortune on matting and framing. And that's money down the drain, investment-wise. It sure does make neat things look even neater, though.

Socony-Vacuum and Mobil had so many ads out over the years that I don't specifically collect them, but this General Petroleum ad from 1935 has always been my favorite. S-V rarely printed more than 2 color ads in this time period, so this full color one has always really stood out from the crowd, just like all the advertising General did pre-1940.

this thread has turned out awesome... keep em coming!

and for framing & matting putting money down the drain... just have to make sure and be frugal with it. My wife took that piece I had to hobby lobby and got the frame and it matted for $33. To me, it easily turned a piece of paper into a piece worthy of over $30,

You can buy a good used matte cutter on ebay and the supplies you need at your local craft store to do this at a fraction of the price. Also frames can be bought at second hand stores and else where. Its much more satisfying to do it yourself. Its easy too. Careful though- empty frames multiply like mice-At one time, my wife had like a hundred spare frames- just in case.

Work space, storage space, excess "inventory" as mentioned, too much finished product to properly display, friends and relatives wanting you to frame just this one little picture, and so on and so forth. No thanks, I need all my space for real "junk."

I have always liked looking threw old magazines. I pull out the ad's that I like and store them in archival folders. I will post a bunch of them over the next few days.

As far as framing. I was at an auction last night , good local junk sale. Framed art work and posters were going under ten bucks. If you went to a store the frame and glass would cost fifty bucks. Buy up the old and recycle, it saves a lot of money. Yard sales are a good source as well.

All these ad's I have found over the years by looking threw magazines. It is time consuming but fun, and you learn all kinds of things. Any of these things can be found for next to nothing if you take the time.

It is a good thing this post is not about Coca-Cola or other things. You'all would get sick of seeing all the posts I could put on other subjects.

Well how about blotters. Another one of those great collectibles you can find on a small budget.

Man, The TRAIL of the MOHAWK (Page 5) is a killer art work!

Is it MOHAWK GASOLINE?

It is referring to the Mohawk Trail in the Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts. It is full of pictures of the scenic roadway. I have another folder and several post cards from the same era, but this folder and post card show the gas station.

Most everything I have pictured so far has been under $10.00 bucks. As you can see there are tons of quality collectibles that can be had on a budget if you take the time to look for them. I have thousands of other smalls packed away in my show piles. First shows in a few weeks {Mason Dixon Gas} If I remember I will try to take some pictures. In the meantime add some pictures and keep the thread going.

A few of these things have been in the 20 buck range.

I am starting to wonder if anyone on this sight is on a budget ? No one is showing anything ?

I bought some match books on this sight last night. 4,5 bucks.

There are deals to be found if you look. I bought this pump for 20 bucks at Hershey car show the other year. Air meter from a guy in NH for 50 bucks and a banner at an antique show in Pa. for 40 bucks.

I think the idea of this thread was about suggestions/ideas for people who cant or dont want to spend too much money on stuff. You know, making displays out of magazine ads and stuff like that. But I could be wrong.(It happens-a lot)

Would like to know, on the "Shell Motor Spirit" above by 60Wayne, was it a magazine ad, a sign or what was it's original use. It looks to be about 1917-1919 era. It is a great piece. Thanks for posting, Raymond
