About Our Antique Business

My name is Larry Meeker and my wife Carole and I are full time antique dealers. We have been conducting our antiques business on a full-time salesman Sample Jones Mowing Machinebasis for nearly 40 years. Our two antique related websites have been online for approx. 30 years. This website and our sister antique sales website are our means of meeting the challenges in the ever-changing world of buying and selling antiques.

Our main buying and selling interests focus on early patented, mechanical and technology related antiques dating from the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution and up through the 1920's or so. Tools, Technology, and Scientific related Antiques as well as Americana, Advertising, General Store, and related antiques are of particular interest. We refer to this as Americana with a purpose.

These patented and mechanical antiques come from the home, shop, farm, or office. We buy and sell quality antiques and collectibles in these fields, be Salesman Sample Hay Tedderit a single found piece, something that was inherited, a collection that was assembled or other.

Carole and Larry Meeker sell antiquesFinally, I don't know about all of you, but I like to see who I'm going to be doing business with. So here we are!

And here is Madison, our 14 year old Black Lab. (now dead) She was our real inspiration, always happy, always ready, and never complained. She loved to do whatever we are going to do, although she would rather go swimming or go to the beach more often. When you need a friend, or a change pace, she is there ready and willing. And yes, she does sleep in the bed.

A Tribute to Madison


Due to time constraints, a full time work schedule, and the large volume of free appraisal and general information requests that we receive everyday, it is not possible for us to respond to all individual requests for general information about every item, or give free online evaluations / appraisals of your antiques that are not for sale.  Please see the FAQ page for more info on this.

Thanks for understanding!!

Thank you!!
