Starting To Sell Things Off

Well, we have started the process of selling things off. Ronda is putting together a list of things and I’m showing her how to use Craigslist and Ebay so she can sell them. I am putting several radios up for sale, for example a 1938 Zenith 12S267, I’m probably the only person on the planet with two of them so one of them can go.

This picture was taken from the shop that restored it for me, unfortunately that shop is now closed. As you can see the radio looks like brand new. This and a few others will be going up for sale this weekend. This one should bring around $3,000.00, I hope!

I’m going to get rid of the green plastic ties and try to use period style ties from the 1930's.

OMG - we had an old radio in a similar style (I know nothing about them). We "gave" it to our son...and the grandchildren pretty much ruined it. Such a shame - no respect for family heirlooms I guess.

I had planned on handing my radios down as well but after seeing a few get ruined already I see no reason to hold onto all of them.

For me these things are a part of history and nothing like them will ever be made again. So, I'm going to sell most of them hopefully to people who appreciate them as much as I have.

God, I never get tired of seeing this old massive circuit boards with the tubes that are housed in all of these old classics.
