Most of the items displayed on the following pages are presented as EXAMPLES, reference items etc. THEY ARE NOT FOR SALE! For example, as stated on the appropriate page, we do not sell embossed metal, most of it has not been available for decades. (There are a few exceptions, a very few trunks and other items displayed ARE for sale, but this will be clearly noted.) Also, we DO NOT SELL parts or supplies.
