Vintage Image Auctions
Current Vintage Image Auctions from
Many of our original antique materials came from vintage image auctions
on eBay. And over the last decade, we have sold or auctioned thousands
of our own postcards, trade cards and advertising, antique magazines,
books, pieces of sheet music, and much more -- and yet our collections
keep growing! Much like buying things from a garage sale, and
putting them in your garage.
Here is a listing of everything we are currently offering through our
eBay auctions. Our eBay seller ID is scott-and-martin

eBay may be the world's largest garage sale, but you may be just as
lucky finding vintage items at a real garage sale. Also,
visit your local thrift or charity store, swap meet, library sale, or
even in your own attic. You'll
see many amazing and beautiful items that have been hidden away for a
century, just for you. You may find just the thing to inspire
your latest craft or scrapbook layout!
Hope to see you at one of our eBay vintage image auctions!
