There are deals to be found if you look. I bought this pump for 20 bucks at Hershey car show the other year. Air meter from a guy in NH for 50 bucks and a banner at an antique show in Pa. for 40 bucks.
I think the idea of this thread was about suggestions/ideas for people who cant or dont want to spend too much money on stuff. You know, making displays out of magazine ads and stuff like that. But I could be wrong.(It happens-a lot)
Would like to know, on the "Shell Motor Spirit" above by 60Wayne, was it a magazine ad, a sign or what was it's original use. It looks to be about 1917-1919 era. It is a great piece. Thanks for posting, Raymond
