This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#CH326-23  - Lucille Ball Miss Grant Takes Richmond Movie Poster/Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1949 Lucille Ball and William Holden movie "Miss Grant Takes Richmond". Please click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.

#CH406  - 1940s First Run Movie Posters Broadsides - As low as $1.50
These are paper movie posters/broadsides, mostly from the mid 1940s. If you order 20 or less, all will be different. Size varies, up to 12" or more tall. Some are different widths. All of them feature famous movies that ran from about 1939 to 1951, and all have a similar look to the ones pictured. Please note that most of these were first run movies with famous stars. Old unused movie theatre stock. PLEASE NOTE - Many have edge roughness or small edge tears. They can all be trimmed to look great. All of these were found by Bob Secrist at a northern Ohio theatre many years ago. They served the theatre as handouts and broadsides/posters that would announce the latest cowboy movie at the theatre. They would tack them on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived except this large stash that Bob uncovered in the theatre storage area. He was one of the most respected and well known collectors in the country. We got these directly from his estate. They are much scarcer than lobby posters. We have them priced so low because there are a lot of them.  Over time, they will run low, and our prices will increase on them. These are great Americana pieces at silly low prices. Get them at these prices while you can.

#SIGN112 - Rare Early B.P.O.Elks Paper Flag on Pin

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the B.P.O.Elks. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (also known as the Elks Lodge or simply The Elks) is to this day one of the largest fraternal orders in the United States with around a million current members. It was formed as a fraternal order and social club in 1868 and has a lot of rituals, traditions, and regalia that is very simllar to the Freemasons.  It was a boys only club until recent years, and many lodges are still men only. They sponsored an insurance fund in the 1800s that was banned in 1907 when the money was mismanaged. Since then it has been a social club that has donated to many charities. These flags are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master boxes, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known.  They say "B.P.O.Elks" and have the society Elk logo on them. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them.
