Things are getting tougher in Loveman Land as they are now selling lightbulbs and old playing cards.

The playing cards aren't that surprising; they're probably bought by companies who then sell them to retailers (e.g. drugstores) who, in turn, sell them to customers.

I did notice a couple of interesting items; "slot machine parts" (presumably they removed any PROMs that could be used for cheating purposes) and a roulette wheel (made in London, apparently, even though it looked like a double-zero wheel).

I want that tall wine cabinet. Nice piece of furniture.

I have a feeling The vintage slot signs may be worth something. I have bought and sold some Slot and VP machine glass. I had a chance to buy 20 more for 10 bucks each including Old IGT Jacks or better, Joker Poker. I passed because I swore off collecting more stuff. I always think I will resell stuff, but rarely spend the effort to do so.

I have a feeling The american picker guys would like the BIG heads

They were my first thought as well! (The American Picker guys). I'm guessing the first sale they did might've had more vintage stuff, though.

With 1/2 hr left, a lot of the bamboo items are gonna go cheap.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

I think there is a live auction as well, so the internet bids are probably not going to be the final bids.
