I'm looking to build my type collection. I was wondering where everyone usually finds their type cases (aside from ebay)?
Monica Kass Rogers, here. I have a ton of type cases, galley trays and such. I am in Evanston, IL and would be happy to sell you some if you are willing to pick up. Not sure where you are located?
Are you looking to purchase TYPE or CASES or BOTH Type and Cases----??
After 60-years of collecting we're going to be selling about 80% of
our collection----250 cases of type/American-European foundry;
2-floor model presses, 3 table-top presses, 3 proof presses,
19 Wood-Metal Type Cabinets w/matching cases, furniture-reglet-
bookbinders cabinets, thermography machine, bench paper cutter,
initials, borders, dingbats-decorators----tons of small necessary items
like job sticks, gage pins, line gages, tympan paper, oil-base ink,
etc., etc. We're near Madison, Wisconsin----let us know asap since
everything is being sold on a first come-first served basis. Maryann
Hi Maryann - We're near the Wisconsin/Illinois border and would be interested in learning more about what you have for sale. We would be available to drive up Monday (11/17) to take a look. Thanks!
Our shop is "on-the-square" in downtown Monroe and open TUESDAY
thru SATURDAY from 9 am until 4:30 pm so those hours would
work OK----we live above the shop so after hours is a possibility.
The shop is closed on Sunday and Monday---THIS Monday (11/17)
finds us out of town-----give me a call.....we'll work something out.
Plan to spend awhile----there is a LOT to look at.

Thank you! I'll be in touch this week - would love to get up there this Saturday.
Unfortunately I'm located in New York, about 30 minutes north of NYC.
But I appreciate the help!
