Ray Miller was born in 1918 in York, PA. When he was 14 years old, he got his first tattoo. By the time he was 16, he mail-ordered his first tattoo “outfit” and began inking his friends. A few years later, he was traveling the carnival circuit in South Central PA, setting up his booth, and putting his mark on many a hide. Ray was a tattoo artist. He was also a cowboy. A prize fighter. A soldier. A

Well. That was quick.
SOLD!

Here's one (or three) you don't see every day. These antique "Rolling Chairs" were used by vendors to push tourists up and down the boardwalk during the late 18 hundreds, through the first part of the 20th century. This one came from Ocean City, NJ. The chair was beyond repair, but I saved the two porcelain signs that were attached, along with the printed paperboard sign, which is stapled onto a thin piece of plywood.

$225. Free shipping.

Rare Vintage Sony Promotional Umbrella

Before iTunes, and Pandora, and Spotify, and streaming, and even CDs, there was the humble cassette tape. If youre a child of the 60s - 80s, like me, the cassette was the coolest thing since the Schwinn Stingray. The bright, colorful umbrella was most likely a premium given by Sony to retailers to

2 Antique Tin Box, Reverse Painted Glass, Light-Up Signs

2 Antique Tin Box, Reverse Painted Glass, Light-Up Signs

RIGHT OUT OF THE BARN! Most likely from a hardware store. They have rubber feet to sit on a shelf or counter, AND loop hooks to hang. Yeah, the cans are rust covered, but structurally sound. They should clean up nicely. The paint on the inside of the glass has begun to peel, and they certainly need to be rewired. The first set of photos are for the APPLIANCE sign, the second for the LOCKSMITH. $180 each.
