Growing Up with the "Oddball"
My heritage was cemented in my father's passion for auctions, the great deal, and selling. From the earliest time, we lived behind the small store that my father owned. It was your typical city neighborhood grocery store where, behind the counter, a small metal file box held IOUs...from the folks who lived up the street or on the other side of the alley. In a family of seven, it was apparent to my father (Ed) that he needed to beef up his inventory that consisted of canned goods, candy, pop, lunch meats and hand-cut meat. So he went to an auction one day and was bitten by the bug! Boxes of odds and ends sat next to the peas and corn. "What is this thing, Ed," they would ask. Ed would reply, "I don't know but you can have it for a dollar." He would bring home amazing treasures, including lots of vintage items such as books, restaurant dishes, flags, and toys. Later, when we had to relocate to another home and were without the business, due to a highway expansion, my dad set up shop on 8 Mile Rd and named it the "Odd Ball". Many, many auctions and years later, I honed my own passion for the "deal" and vintage treasures. It's in my blood. I love the hunt. I also love to recycle vintage finds. Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!

If for any reason you are unhappy with an item (if I haven't explained the nuances of the products carefully), let me hear from you.
Occasionally I will reserve items. Reserved listings are good for 7 days before I re-list them for public sale. I am convo friendly so please let me know if you need a little longer.
At this time I do not offer insurance but if there is an item of special value and you would like me to do so, I will add this service to your bill. Just convo me.
Please feel free to convo me if you are interested in multiple items.
If you live in an exotic, foreign land, just let me know what you are interested in, and I will get it weighed and have a price for shipping the same day. Please note that I cannot guarantee that your purchase will be delivered. At this time there is no way to track overseas shipments.
