...but I DO NOT ship them.
If you are in the San Diego California area let me know what you're looking for...I have hundreds, vintage and modern: Kirby, Hoover, Royal, Sanitaire, Eureka, Kenomore, Miele, Panasonic, Oreck, Riccar/Simplicity Tristar, Filter Queen, Electrolux, Lindhaus, Nilfisk, etc.
All are post mid 60's. Some are meh, while others are gems. A like new, complete, Green Hoover Celebrity QS, with all tools, would be one of many highlights. Also a low use Miele Aluminum model comes to mind.

I repeat no shipping, sorry.
I need to thin down. Pics are about half of my hoard. I've posted here on Vacuumland for years.
No rush, so file this away in the back of your brain if you ever drive through this area.

Hi Robert,


It looks like you pretty much just have newer machines unless you have older ones you didn't take photos of. Anything from mid-1950s ~ earlier?


I need more vacuum cleaners like I need another hole in the head but it's always a temptation..................

My oldest is an early Hoover Dial. Generally I'm not interested in vacs much older than me, but if given the chance I might make an exception.
I actually have two complete Celebrities including a blue one I just picked up, but the mint green one with mint green hose is really an eye popper.
Most of my metal vacs are not in these photos. They live in an Audi station wagon with a tarp over it, too dark for pics.
I finally live back here in Southern California full time and am beginning the long process of rationalizing my hoard. Glad I grabbed most of these when I did because I see few if any of the same type now out there, even many newer vintages.

What kind of Panasonics do you have? Also those Kenmores that are made by Panasonic and those Simplicity/Tacony models?

I like almost all bagged upright Panasonics and the higher range Kenmore stuff by Panasonic as well, upright or canister...the BOLs Vac's no.
The Hoover Dial, Panasonic Jet Flo's, all Tacony, made by Panasonic or not, and other clones...are pretty much my favorite upright design and something I will always grab if it's well priced.
If you search my handle you will see many of the examples of these vacs in my collection posted from years past.

Here's an especially treasured pair I am keeping in the bedroom lately.
I also have a blue Powr-Flite Panasonic clone which is my absolute favorite vacuum to use in the house currently...and the purple and white Kenmore/Panasonic sweeper vac with motorized head that was sold for a brief period a few years ago. It's a go daily driver along with a pair of Blue line Sanitaires.

I also like these type of uprights as well and it's actually my favorite of all time. I like Panasonic the best and that's the main reason why I named this username "panasonicvac". I've always loved their Performance Plus, Platinum, and Ultra Pro models because they've always impressed me.
