Diamonds in the Rough

The  Vintage Radio and Communications Museum is looking to divest excess inventory.  We have many collectable console radios and just don't have the room for them.  We're not selling  our excess inventory ; we're putting the items up for adoption for you to appreciate and care for. This is your opportunity to acquire a "Diamond in the Rough" from our extensive collection.

Our museum is an all volunteer run museum that relies on donations. So, not only do you have the opportunity to acquire a collectible, you also are making a donation to keep our museum open to people of all ages

Our terms are simple.  Cash only .No checks. No layaways. Local pickup only.

We also accept PayPal.  It’s easy, complete the contact form and then click on the PayPal  button.
