Here are a few of my better buys of the last couple weeks....Each of these deals started out with a single purchase on eBay
that turned into a better deal! I have a habit of always asking sellers if they have any other like items they are planning on auctioning and if so, I would be interested in an outside deal if they are willing. First off is the Marathon globes. I purchased the Super M lens and asked the seller if he had anything else...low and behold he had a pair of Mile Makers that I ended up buying. The man was super to deal with. The Super M was notched for glass while the Mile Maker was made for a Capco. The National ad glass matches my deco globe. I think they will look great displayed together. It was a good Marathon week!
Same thing on the pair of Mobil banners. The seller listed one but had the other for a future auction. We ended up making a deal on the second one, which is obviously a different version than I originally won. These came out of a 1930s Mobil station in Nebraska that the original owner's son still owns. I love items with a history like this. In the original location for over 70 years!
