What's Atomic Space Junk? Sometimes we don't know until we see it for the first time. When it comes to collecting antiques, we've been making up our own rules since the '90s. We collected anything heavy on design aesthetics or a high kitsch / irony factor. However, we always have, and still do, go out of our way to look for beauty and great potential in items most folks would rather throw away or sell for scrap. We have rescued, restored, and refurbished bicycles, furniture, stereo equipment, appliances, and loads of stuff that would have wound up at the landfill. Here are a few of our interests...

...We have been collecting such as old Drinking and Smoking items since, well, as long as we've been drinking and smoking!

We have come across some rare items, too, such as an original Stelton Danish Modern 6-piece stainless steel bar set, a set of unbelievably rare Old Crow Bourbon golf tees shaped like crows, and an authentic individually numbered bottle of vintage Barbancourt Rhum Reserve Du Domaine!

...Art, Paintings and Prints like 1950s retro nuclear family portrait oil paintings, retro advertising posters, copper enamel, Lee Reynolds paintings, Ken Edwards and Sheldon Gants Mid-Century Modernist pottery, and more.

vintage electronicsVintage Electronics

Outdated electronics are our favorite collectibles. Stereos are just the beginning. We like just about anything that's old and plugs into an outlet, and the weirder the better. We have all of the big names from yesterday's Hi-Fi stores...Sansui, Pioneer, Kenwood, Sherwood, Fisher, Marantz, etc. But we also like the "funkier" retro gifts from Panasonic, Craig, Emerson, Soundesign, etc. After all, sound isn't everything...sometimes you need something that looks like it came out of Dr. Brown's DeLorean...

vintage sansui...Vintage Amplifiers and Receivers for the coolest looking sounds ever. Tube amplifiers and tuners, vintage receivers, loud speakers, radios, turntables, equalizers, and more. We always bring you the top in retro electronic gadgets and other fun stuff from times past....

Boomboxes that rock the streets in an old-school way. Remember being jealous of that kid with the box bigger than yours? There is no better way to enjoy that old cassette collection you still have stored under the bed at your parents' house. Great gifts to blow the minds of your kids. No substitute for the originals....

vintage musical instruments...Musical Instruments from guitars to keytars. Retro Synth keyboards, harmonicas and weird musical instruments. Check out these pages to find cool gifts such as vintage guitars, vintage electronics and musical instruments...

vintage televisions...Vintage Televisions seem like a strange collectible, but we have seen the true value in these often discarded artifacts for years now. Finally, the rest of the world has caught up, and we have found and sold some of the most unique retro TVs that you never knew existed. We love anything that plugs in and has visual appeal, no matter the shape or size or category of vintage electronics...we are constantly on the hunt the perfect birthday present that shows you have been listening, and we know where to find them!

...Cameras of all types are one of our things because we are photographers, and we both love the way old cameras look. They make great gifts for photography lovers. We especially love the old Zeiss cameras or anything that looks like it was over-engineered. Today's cameras simply don't compare after you have felt the weight of a vintage camera and seen the quality of a real photograph. Future beware...

Vintage Clothes and accessories like 1980s vintage Gucci Handbags, Christian Dior Chapeaux Ladies Hats, dresses, shirts, and skirts, batwing dresses, vintage leather shoes, Men and Womens clothing from the Swank '50s to the Mod '60s to the Funky 70s to the Retro '80s...we even sold a bright yellow denim 1991 Cross Colours jacket (remember them?) to a happy bidder in Japan!

Out of Print Books, comics, music and movies are great gifts for all of the family. There's nothing like getting your hands on that old book, record album, or out-of-print CD you've been looking for. Some of the unique items we have are rare 1980s Samantha Fox items such as CDs, calanders, photos and more.

Sports collectibles. We have a wide and ever changing supply of the best in sports collectibles...no, we aren't talking about signed baseballs, football jerseys, or team memorabilia imported from China. As you might guess, our sports collectibles are a bit more...unusual. How about vintage tennis bags? I personally love hand held electronic games. Back to tennis, I love the kind of bags from the 80's, with neon colors that make you look just like McEnroe or Agassi on the court. How about Professional Wrestling collectibles, like real signed 8x10 photos of Jake the Snake, Big John Studd, and the Masked Superstar? Or the rare WCW Wrestling Hockey Game with world-famous wrestlers as the hockey players? Vintage Faball Hammer and Manhattan Rubber Bowling balls. Odd one of a kind stuff you wouldn't typically see at the sports memorabilia convention. Our strength is vintage electronics and old retro electronics parts, so you know we are going to have some vintage electronic football games for the perfect retro gift.

Classic Toys and Games for the kid in all of us. We love the things we remember from growing up in the 1970s and 1980s. Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Popples, Micronauts, Hot Wheels, Barbie Dolls, Transformers and Japanese Bandai Godaiken Robots...we collect anything that makes us say, "I had that when I was a kid!", or "I WANTED that when I was a kid"! We also enjoy collecting anything odd and unusual from the '60s and '70s.

vintage schwinn stingray...Vintage Bicycles make for the sweetest rides around town and the beach. Old-School BMX and 1980s freestyle bikes are our favorites, but vintage Schwinn Stingrays and pre-70s big cruisers are also part of our collection...

...Out of Stock Video Games for the nerd inside of you. We found one of the few existing copies of the Menavision Air Raid video game cartridge, the rarest Atari 2600 game ever produced. We also love old-school gaming of all kinds; Atari, classic Nintendo NES consoles and accessories, handheld games, rare 1970s pong games, anything that was considered high-tech 30 years ago...

 

Old School Skateboards! We love skateboards from the 1980s and earlier...we always have a sharp eye out for any skate-related items that remind us of our teenage years...from wide decks and Independent trucks of the 1980s to killer banana board cruisers from the 1970s to metal wheel skateboard deathtraps from the 1960s! Vintage Pro-Tec helmets, Rector Skate Gear, retro skate punk clothes, even old Thrasher Magazines...we love it all!
