What I have been doing the last few months..

Less buying, more selling. That is why I have not had my weekly “Find” posts as I did all Summer. Yard and estate sales have died down, there are only 1 or 2 a week now in my area as opposed to the 20-30 that there normally are. I am selling now as much as possible on ebay and my local auction to get caught up before the season starts up again.

Below are just a few items I have acquired recently..

This is an autograph album from the 1980’s with over 80 signature photographs and letters from many famous opera singers including Placido Domingo. I paid only a few dollars for this as it was in a pile of items I purchased out of a very dirty garage from a local estate sale.

I purchased this vintage brass sign from a garage sale about a month ago. I think I paid around $20 for it. Samuel Rappaport was a local Philadelphia, Pa real estate¬†infamous “slumlord”.

This is an industrial fan by Hunter FAN and VENTILATING Co. out of Fulton NY. I purchased it a few weeks ago from a local flea market for $20. It was a bit of a struggle getting this home but in the end, when it sells, I think the trouble will be worth it. It is very cool standing 6ft tall with huge fan blades and a heavy cast iron base. It still works and is surprisingly extremely powerful.

Here are some antique meters in wood cases, very cool. I love this kind of industrial looking stuff. One is from a flea market the other from a yard sale.
