    Picked up these few items recently as well. Again, new collector here (2 months). Cooler is an Action Mfg from Arkansas City, Kansas. Yes, scratches, but integrity and inside very nice. Has the bottle opener on the side (paid $180). The grocery cart holder ($60) and ink blotter ($5) were picked from the widow of the owner of the Arcadia, FL bottling plant (closed in 1985). The bottles are Arcadia, FL too. Ink blotter is like new...Cart rack has seen better days, but even though the condition is not mint, I love the pieces. any thoughts always welcome! Thanks for looking.

      These are all sought after items by collectors. Based on my experience building a collection primarily through on-line auctions (eBay, liveauctioneers.com, Morphy Auctions), the tendency early on is to overpay for items. TGBWC gave a solid piece of advice when he addressed condition. With patience and persistence a collector can obtain excellent to near mint condition Coca-Cola ad pieces at very reasonable prices. There's nothing wrong with paying full market or book value. But there is better condition stuff out there for equivalent cost. You have a nice start to your collection.

      Thx again guys. I won't be as trigger happy from now on. The search is tough but I guess that's part of the chase!!

      Agreed, agreed, agreed, and agreed. The help on this site has been second to none for me and it can be for you and anyone.
      Great items posted here. I like the stuff that shows the age. As long as the verbiage and logos are clear, patina (little rust and a dent) are good for me.
      "Enjoy" the collecting journey.
