Well, OF COURSE it's rare. Aren't ALL vintage vacuum cleaners rare?! heheh And this one is a truly rare find since it's a virgin! *GASP* Can it actually be true that there's still a virgin vintage vacuum cleaner on the planet??!

Anywaaaaaay... I've never heard of the Armaid brand. Has anyone else out there in Vacuumland? Of course, it's a Royal with a vanity brand. It does appear to be in nice condition and fairly old. I've always liked that old-style black rubber handle.

I believe that Armaid was the house brand of Famous Barr. They made a really pretty cannister (Rick A. has one, I think), and I have a window fan of that brand. I'm not certain who produced them, the cannister looks at lot like a rotomatic.

I visited that store when I was in St. Louis (it's now a Macys), it was rather depressing.

In fact, downtown St. Louis as a whole is depressing, there's barely anything there anymore.
