Hi, I have 10+ Electrolux NOS Model C.A. filter bags, one C.A. filter/muffler (w/slight tear, & one genuine re-order envelope) from the Consolidated Foods era that I am looking to TRADE in lesser amounts (would be nice to spread the wealth) for good condition individual items on my following wish list (random order):

1) Electrolux Turbo Shampoo bottle with sparkles (from circa 1966-1967)

2) Original brown accordian hose w/ivory cord for brown Electrolux Model CB

3) Electrolux Model PN-1 power nozzle w/detachable single steel wand & elbow & a 3-wire genuine 10-foot Electrolux aqua hose cord w/straps for Model CB; nozzle cover can be teal as I can swap out

4) Filter screens & filter holders for Model CB (3 sets needed)

5) Electrolux Model CB extra-wide tools (aqua w/teal bumper, ivory w/tan bumper, or ivory w/teal bumper)

6) Something else from Electrolux Corporation that's rare that I might want (including literature, vacuum cleaner accessories or cartons, & B-8 accessories or cartons)

»The filter bags are all in very good condition (no stains, foul odors, or tears) and have been stored above ground in a climate-controlled environment in a plain box or bag also in very good condition. I do have another re-order envelope that's wrinkled which I'm taking for granted would interest no one but let me know if it does you.

•The # &/or type of (an) item(s) traded by one individual would potentially allow him/her to receive all the C.A. items mentioned (+?—negotiable).

•Total actual shipping costs for both would be shared 50/50 (negotiable). Personal extra-careful and adequate packing, good quality, adequate & effective sealing & packaging, and timely & careful sending (marked "FRAGILE" &/or "HAND STAMP") given and expected. You'd have a choice of envelope or box. Continental US only

•I will only transact with regular Vacuumland contributors &/or well-known collectors or those who are recommended by them. I'm endeavoring to participate in (a) fair, honest, and smooth transaction(s) on both sides. We need to all/both stake our reputations on it; although any unforeseen issues should be handled privately and only made public if no mutual resolution is achieved.

•Paypal is preferred. No personal checks

•No immediate offers will be accepted, so I can allow time and consideration for others. Please make trade offers on this thread.

•Once an agreement to trade on both sides is accepted commitment to complete the transaction is expected—no backing out afterward. Serious offers only.

•Privacy will be honored by me & expected in return—no sharing of personal contact information with others.

•All offers will be considered—including partials such as a hose with no cord.

☕I will either keep any untraded items for myself (in hopes of one day obtaining a Model C.A.) or sell them on an online auction site at some point in the future.

☕I am also considering TRADING a spare good-condition unattached set of an Electrolux Model GH filter holder & cord winder with reattachment holes (I need to be test it for functionality); but have not made a definite decision on that as I may want to use it on a Model G. Your offer, though, could persuade me to part with it. Screws to attach the cord winder to the cleaner may not be included (I'd have to check if they're there). Photos will be posted if a trade offer is made that I might accept (no commitment without photos—just an interest).


Finally, if you're blown away by all my expectations, keep in mind that I'm a bit nervous about this and just want to avoid any potential conflict with an online transaction. I've never been part of one—including online auctions or Craigslist—and don't want to go there if I can help it. It would be less risky and more expedient for me to just sell on an online auction site, but at this point I'd prefer to trade with other collectors/enthusiasts.

Items in photos were placed on a sidewalk with a bit of snow and a leaf:

Hey Paul:

Can you email me? We have a small facebook group going that is just for those that have the Commercial Electrolux's in their collections. Sounds like you might find it interesting.
