MAINE MILITARY AND ANTIQUES
BUYER AND COLLECTOR OF MILITARY AND ANTIQUE COLLECTABLES
SPANISH AMERICAN WAR
GUNS (ANTIQUE, NON MILITARY, AND MILITARY MUSKETS, RIFLES, SHOT GUNS, AND PISTOLS)
I purchase most military items covering the above wars. These items will be preserved in my collection. I do not consider myself an antique dealer. Most antique dealer have one thing in mind, profit. They typically purchase items at a fraction of the actual value to make a high profit. They do not care about preserving history. Veteran collections with documentation is something that I take great pride in receiving. All item will be preserved together to honor the veteran and his family. If possible stories can be video taped or recorded. Documents will be produced from that information and will accompany the veterans collection. My main goal is to preserve our history. Some items will be loaned to museums. Many museums are getting full and they cannot accept any more items. Donations are not as high as many years ago. People cannot afford to donate items and need the money instead. It is often hard to sell items that are part of a veterans life and have value to the family's history and I understand that.
I purchase and collect the following items in moderation.
ANTIQUES: (PRE 1970 ITEMS)
ADVERTISING SIGNS, DISPLAYS, AND THERMOMETERS
TOYS (MOST UP THE THE LATE 70'S)
BICYCLES (MOST UP TO THE 50'S)
ANTIQUE HAND TOOLS
$$$ I CAN HELP YOU SELL YOUR ITEMS ONLINE!
I have my own online business that is not related to my hobby. However if you have one item or many items that I am not interested in purchasing and I think would sell good online I will take pictures of your items and list them online. I will do all necessary research to insure I give the best description of your item to buyers. I will also research the value of the item so you will receive a fair price for your item. I will charge you 10% - 15% of the selling price plus listing and credit card processing fees. I prefer to ship the items myself.
YARD / GARAGE SALES:
Please consider my help when you are interested in having a yard sale or garage sale. I am on your side and I want you to get a fair price for your items. When you post antiques in an ad you will have antique dealers showing up early and acting like vultures. Make sure you know what your items are worth before you have the yard sale. Yes I am looking to buy but I only buy items I am interested in. I do not buy and sell as a business I buy for collecting purposes.
SOON I WILL BE ADDING PICTURES OF ITEMS FROM MY COLLECTION.
I want to share the items and stories to others online. I will also display my veterans collections and any stories that go with them.
I will also will be listing items for sale. I try to retain everything that I acquire but sometime I need to take all or nothing in those cases I may receive duplicates or items that do not pertain to my collection. Some items may be on consignment.
Located in the Bangor, Maine area.
