My family has always had interest in history and antiques.
From the days of flea markets and yard sales, we were always on the hunt for pieces that had a certain appeal. Its a bit hard to quantify, but in radios from the 1930's, its the ones that almost everyone, including non enthusiasts, agree have eye appeal, or just great design. There were a few times in American consumer product history when the combination of competitiveness, design and function combined to produce timeless designs. For instance, the 1957 Chevrolet, or the Douglas DC- 3.
I seek out the radios that have the best design from the Golden Age of radio. Its not always the most expensive, or the best performing model. Often they came from small companies struggling to compete. The independence of design is very often missing from today's mass produced and mass marketed items from a shrinking pool of manufacturers.
Take a look at some of our restored radios for sale, or browse the archives and see if you agree.
Purchasing Classic Radios
I offer a five day no questions asked return policy. If you don't like it, just send it back for a full refund.
I encourage you to ask all the questions you need to to ensure that you understand a given radio, warts and all.
Overseas sales are OK where practical.
Checks, Money Orders and PayPal are fine, and soon I will accept credit cards. Shipping I generally ship UPS, but will consider and work with you as to who you may prefer to ship with. Shipping is quoted after the final destination is known.
