I like coke stuff just as much as the next guy/gal. Can anybody tell me anything about this coke stuff?

    Modern decorator piece's,mass produced,in great shape ,but relatively in-expensive. Does'nt that sound better than "worthless junk"!

    What's one man's junk is another man's treasure. If you can get $5 for it, it's not worthless is it?

    I make money every day of the week off what some people consider junk . I have taken wooden chairs that were spilt down the middle of the seat that was sitting out for the trashman . I fix them and sell them very quickly at one of our Flea Market booths . They are free for the taking and if one knows how to fix them they are wroth something . The last one I sold in just days for $15.00 . Fifteen dollars is fifteen dollars . I have also done this with light fixtures . I once picked up some that a person had set out in the trash . There were four of them . I restored them and sold two of them for $ 275.00 , one is now hanging in our den . I still have one to restore . I have also done this with tables and all sorts of things . Most things even things in the trash can be restored and made usefull again . I take great pride and joy in doing this and I make money at it . Just because someone thinks that it is junk does not mean that it is not worth something !!!!!

    Hey, I satarted out by collecting inexpensive vintage coke stuff that either beat up crap or a great deal. there's lots of vintage coke stuff that's old, and inexpensive to collect, like magazine ads, common paper items, bottle openers, cups, receits, need I say more. There are lots of vintage coke stuff that anybody can buy for less then new collectibles. I just bought a coke paper viser from the 50's for 3 bucks! Point is, you just got to look instead of just walking down to a local cracker barrel or flea market and get this stuff. Nancy, what you get isn't junk, it's OLD junk. So people are going to collect/ buy it cause it's old. I just believe there's no excuse for collecting new stuff cause "old stuff is too expensive", there is PLENTY of cheap old stuff to pass around.

    Jane, I like the little lunch box/bottle carrier thingie.
    Not too keen on the truck.

    Coca-cola "stuff" can be found all over the place. We buy what we like, be it new or old. Don't let anybody tell you what you should or shouldn't collect.Ten years from now, all these "worthless new things" will be vintage, and collectable.

    I have what is now vintage, but before was considered disposable: signs, bottles, and many quirky things. I could kick myself for not saving some of the stuff I had when I was growing up. If I like it, it ends up coming home with me.

    Cocacolakid, you may like magazine and other paper ads, but to me, they say nothing. That doesn't make it junk. It only means that if I come across something like that, I wouldn't collect it.

    Bottom line, Jane, is IF YOU LIKE IT, BUY IT.

    I don't see why a lot of the people on here that collects coke are so rude to people that just want to show what they have. To me a person that pays $600.00 for a rusty piece of metal and calls it great is missing something when it comes to the value of money.
    I like to look at whatever is on here mostly the new items. At one time even the old stuff was new. So just remember everybody has feelings if you don't like what you see in the snapshot just move on. I like the items she has. One day they will be old to. It's like the old mustangs and 57 chevys when they got so high most people just moved on. I bet you can look a whole year and never find another coke trailer like I have listed. Most items I buy I intend to sell so I don't post them . This is just my opinion.

    Geeze people, you know what they say about opinions. But if someone asks mine they should be prepared to get the unvarished truth.. All we are saying is they should do some research on thier own and not rely on what everbody else says.........Just saying !
