    I seem to be doing better with mantiques & car parts lately :cool:
    So why not see what else you scored today :D

    I picked up a box of old ashtrays , I've never seen Bakelite ashtrays inside a tyre
    I got 3 this morning , and the box wasn't cheap either , but well worth it :cool:

    I have an antique shop and previously bought and sold at camberwell market for several years.

    The ashtrays would retail for an average of $50 each depending on what advertising is on them (some more some less)

    A fews back they were selling even higher but with the decline in smoking people arent buying smoking related items.

    But as these are Tyre shaped and have car related advertising, they still retain a decent value.

    That ring is PM spanner!!!

    If we were on Whirlpool I'd report you for being off-topic, or pointless, or bad, or floccinaucinihilipilificationist.

    Nice pick-up though, 1/3 of spot value :lol:

    Oz and Spanner,

    Do you fellas ever come across any old vintage radios - from the 40s to the 60s?

    Some are going for good money at the moment.

    Not a collector just appreciate the quality and design of vintage radio. It would also be interesting to see what is on the AM airwaves these days.
