Buy Sell Trade Toys,Comics,Records and so on
Me and a few friends have 2 shops we sell out of. We have 4300 SQFT on 1 side and 6900 SQFT on the other and are opening a 37k SQFT store (Think antique mall)
I use Blowout to trade cards,comics and so forth but I thought I would put it out here for the other stuff :)
We look for the odd,unusual and hard to find
Metal cars/toys (no hot wheels or small die cast cars)
Older Coke related products (Crates are a fast mover for us)
Older Cola products (Dr Pepper,Crush,Pepsi,etc)
Vintage/Colored Glass(Jars,bottles,etc pre 1960)
1975-1990 Toys revolving around super heroes,GI Joe,etc as well as Vehicles.(He-Man,Gobots,transformers)
1968 and lower bakelite toys,celluloid toys,metal toys and odd balls
Zippos from 1982 and down
Storm kings with localized advertising (EX:Rays Concrete Kalamazzo,MI)
Kalamazoo lighters 1921-1936
Lunch Boxes pre 1980
Lunch boxes 1981-1995 with thermos only ..no thermos, no interest :)
Random,odd-ball folk art
Confederate items (Buttons,sabers,Shackles,etc)
SOME Taxidery pieces...we have REAL strict laws here in GA :)
Vinyl 45 and 78
Signs, metal and other (Coke,Miller Light,ford,snapper,Cigarettes,etc,etc..Signs that are metal and older that look cool on the wall :P )
I mean, if it's man-cave, we sell it, we buy it and we trade for it :)
Anyway, keep me in mind if you are looking for any man-cave stuff and if you are looking to sell some stuff.
If you are interested in setting up at a vintage (mall) and live within Driving Distance of Ft.Oglethorpe,GA ( 12 miles south of Chattanooga,TX) and would like to try the experience as a dealer, let me know as well :)
In order to get the giant building off the ground and stable before the Holiday rush, we are offering 95.00/mo booths with a 12 month lease or 165.00 mo to mo
Here are some pics of the smaller shop
Post what ya have or what ya need :)
I am a fan of trading
if you have something you think may be cool,drop a post and a pic and let me know what you are looking for or what you need :)

Oh it is a man or Boys dream :)
We get people who just come in and touch everything :)
It's all fun for us.
The issue is we PRICE it by how we buy it and we don't use guides. If there is a discrepancy we let the customer pull up ebay,get a consensus of a price,then we offer 70% if it is something that we know will sell or feel that sells. Most other stores I know use ebay for lowballing and a price guide for selling,so we get a LOT of repeat business :)
Again, it is all about fun. You can't get rich being fair where vintage is concerned and we understand that so we just use this as our Cave away from Cave :)
I will tell you, the oddball crap that comes through here is amazing. I purchased a crate of Lorillards snuff that has a tax stamp from 1919. 24 bottles,full and I LOVE that kind of stuff. Dont have any pics on the comp,but here is what it looks like
EDIT:Wrong Image :)
Still looking :)
Great shop btw. Sent a PM.
Still looking for the "odd" :)
Will have new pictures up next week.
Redid 3 areas fo the store. Have a wall of beer signs and neon on brick now ;)
I have alien DNA that I grabbed from area 51 gibb, is that odd enough for you?
