I don't get much petroliana consigned to my auction house, usually you have to wait for someone to die to get a really nice collection. I did come across a couple Graco service merchandisers, some displays, thermometers, clocks, misc stuff that I pulled out of a few barns on a farm in southern Minnesota. The current owner inherited the farm and all the belongings and wanted to clear out some of this stuff so I bought what he had to sell, it's still barn fresh (covered in years of dust and grime) and I've been told by a couple collectors that I shouldn't clean it unless I 'know what I'm doing'
