What a great story!


...if they don't sell at Columbus...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

I was looking through some old book marks on the computer today and ran across this one. Thought I would bump it to the top so others could see it if they missed it the first time. A couple of the signs were kept in my brothers collection, couple sold locally, the rest went to Columbus, Mancinos show in New York and Iowa Gas. They are now spread out across the country. I know some were bought at the shows, marked up in price and sold again. Still looking for the next big find..

Wow, what a great collection instantly. I would love to find an old shed like this some day.
