Trey
(265 items)

I got this from one of my honey holes, when I first saw it two and a half years ago it wasn't for sale. Called the owner yesterday and just brought it up like I have time and time again and this time he said yes. I'm so happy I got it in my collection. Picked it up from him today he met me at his building and made a special trip for me because he is only open on Wednesdays. The last two pics are the way I got it and the first two pics after deep cleaning.

    I think that all of us serious collectors who don't make a buz of collection ought to know who each other are so we don't have to go through places like Ebay to increase our collections? I can be reached at Kauairooster@gmail.com if you have stuff to trade. We don't sell but we do get extras of cool signs to trade to other collectors for stuff we don't have.
  75. Trey Trey, 1 year ago
    You are right Rattletrap I love a good trade, thanks for reaching out to me:)

  113. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 6 months ago
    I agree with kaputs11. U have the collecting bug like I do and love the hunt and the find. We are like gold miners, oil exploration drillers, fishermen, hunters, and winning athletes. We love the suspense and exhilaration of success. I can see it in the smile & and twinkle in your eyes. It's not about just buying a sign, as anyone can do that on EBay, it's about getting a great deal on a sign and the fun of the hunt for original and difficult sources. That's what I read in the pix
  114. Trey Trey, 6 months ago
    Thanks for the love kaputs11 and the nice comment:) I really do enjoy collecting and sharing my finds.

  117. Trey Trey, 6 months ago
    Well put Rattletrap I am like Jacques Cousteau :) instead of exploring the sea I explore the land in search of New and Interesting things, taking down notes and getting names and numbers for that next big adventure:) And just like Jacques the thrill is on the hunt !!!

    Love it again Trey? Did something happen to your pic here? Just say your own last post?

    ~ LOL.....with these Big Signs, one wonder what your wearing behind it...LOL. My friend said it looked like you were naked hiding behind the Sign. I KNOW THAT IS NOT TRUE -- but funny how some people see things differently .
