    Would love to see a few pictures.
    I am so sorry. I don't have the means to post pictures. I have never posted any pictures on TBN. I have wanted to, many, many times.

    I've also got a small fan collection. All but one works. My favorite is a Vornado from the late 40's or early 50's with the original price tag attached. Also have some nice duck decoys, John Deere stuff and so on.

    But my most unusual collection is my 700+ pairs of cuff links, along with tie tacks and tie bars.

    Yikes! Well, someday, they will make a comeback and you will be prepared.

    It seems lately I collect nagging injuries and stiff joints.

    I have a small collection of the $1 metal casino tokens. One from each place we had been to over a few years. Most places no longer use them. I have a few Y2K poker chips that I thought would be worth something if the world computers crashed.

    With the current interest in the Steam Punk aesthetic, those fans would be a real hit with the younger crowd. I know a collection isn't about selling stuff, but they are worth quite a bit extra right now, I'm guessing. I love the early 1900's industrial quality and look. Very cool.

    Well, creekbend in case you didn't already know about this ...
    Decoy Auction

    Oh, my collection? Hmmmmm.... I inadvertently collect items that I think might be worth money with the eventual plan to sell them on ebay, someday....I just don't know yet which day that might be.

    Which translates to: No honey! I cannot throw that [thing that has been here for 20, 30, 40 years] away because it could be worth big money on ebay!

    Which further translates into: I'm a lazy hoarder.


    Does anyone need some Howard Johnson's drinking straws or a stack of lockout/tagout lock holders?
