Ooooooo! The box for the version 1 Roll-Easy R-1, a Hoover yellow Floor Washer and a Singer S-1!!!

any chance you have an extra complete Floor Washer nozzle or replacement brushes and bottom plate?

an extra S-1?

Where's the Roll-Easy? I saw the turquoise Tool Caddy on the other thread.

Hand vacs - there used to be a guy in the club who lived in Florida who collected hand vacs. Had a zillion of 'em. I can't think of his name now for the life of me. Mark or Marc something I think. Anyone remember him??

- An Electrolux Tan G power nozzle!

- A G.E. Roll-Easy AND box!

- Yes, that's "Lucy's 'Handy-Dandy' Westinghouse" -- I've got one too!

- A Davis Electro-Sweep!!

- One of my aunts had the green triangular-shaped Eureka canister. One time when we went to visit them when I was 8-9 years old, I vacuumed her entire two-story apartment with it, front porch to back, basement to top floor. I was even going to take outside and vacuum the driveway...!

A couple of things I'd like to see more photos of:

- The Electrolux AE "Electrolux Automatic Cleaner" box!

- Your Electrolux Model XX (20) - you can just see the front cover in the lower-right corner of one of the photos. I have one, but the handle has been replaced. In fact, I have never seen one with an intact handle.

I can't imagine just how many vacuums you have all together between the house, shop, and warehouse. Thank you for sharing the pictures! By the way, would you happen to have a spare nozzle for a Kirby 512 that you'd be willing to sell? My 512 runs great, and I have a full set of attachments with it and a polisher, but no nozzle.

What a wonderful treasure trove....


I am just in awe of your collection.Many of us here do not have such a varied, and unique collection as you have. You seem to have a little bit of everything. It must have taken you years to amass all of these things. Congratulations!!!

I too do not have a shopping list of things that I need, and have instead enjoyed the photos as well, and wasn't aware that the point needed to be stressed, however it should come as no surprise that when you show what you've got theres bound to be a few requests here and there.

At any rate, good to see that there are a few places left where there is a "possibility" of finding that needed something if need be....and if offered...

I love your round Eureka and Hoover signs. Have you thought about having replicas made? (I'd be willing to pay around 29.95 for a replica of either, and I'm sure others would also)

Just curious, is the store at 124 M. larger than the location at 148 M? I helped a friend move his electronics/speaker repair shop after him being there 30 yrs. He also wanted to inventory everything as we moved to new place. How long did it take you to make the move? Took us 3 months!! Billy

Joe (Kassock)  was throwing around the idea of a visit there soon.


Perhaps you'll host your own mini meet.  Seems like they're being planned everywhere!

 Everyone from near  and far will come.  Well, they'll say they'll come.

All the hype.. all the excitement...  don't you just love it?
