I have collected and restored old radios for over 30 years. I am a member of the Northwest Vintage Radio Society. I love old radios that "glow in the dark." Restoring these old sets has given me a great deal of enjoyment. I hope I can pass this on to you.

My aim is to sell quality radios that are clean and complete. I try my best to accurately describe my radios and provide clear photographs to show any defects if present. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Click here for my seller's terms & conditions of sale.
