Ad has been up for awhile, the seller is not selling everything that is pictured.

There are a couple radios in there I could be interested in.

But it's 1600 miles away.

No, you can't buy those, only the others. :D

That has happened to me. I've had sellers offer me a radio, then reconsider and take it back out of my pile! :D

That is frustrating!

I had that happen to me in my teen years. A guy had a box of electronic stuff he wanted to give me. He had the box sitting in the middle of his garage when I came to get it.
Once there he started going through the box and in front of me decided that much of the stuff he wanted to keep!

Umm, that is so wrong! If you want to keep some of it, please figure that out BEFORE you have me over to pick the stuff up. Dont tease me with stuff you wanted to keep! ARRGH I was pissed.

But people.... yeah... some people. :x

I doubt that he's selling much of what's pictured.
Other than the Philco Boomerang on the upper right top shelf, I don't see anything beyond average. You can find most of these on eBay all day long.

Wow. Tough crowd. That's my collection. Shoreview, MN, Not Shoreville.

I made it clear in the ad that I'm not selling everything pictured -- how much more clear could I have been about that?

Yes, much of my collection is ordinary stuff. I made that pretty clear too. $40 radios, many of them, should give everyone who collects radios a pretty good idea of what I have for sale. But look carefully... there are treasures hidden amongst the ordinary radios. Check out the wire radios and the Czech Tesla sets.

I'm not selling my catalins, my Silvertone Rocket, my Philco boomerang, and a couple dozen others that I really like.

Good news is I've already sold several thousand dollars worth of those "ordinary" radios... but if you see something in the pictures you have a genuine interest in, feel free to contact me thru CL. I'm generally not shipping (also stated in the ad) but if you want it bad enough, we can possibly work something out. The problem is that I'm moving, and shipping is a hassle I just don't need right now.

I just updated the ad and pictures today.

Regards.

Terry S.

You're welcome, Terry. Glad something positive came out of it. I didn't like the direction it was headed.
