I was wondering where everyone usually finds their type cases (aside from ebay)? Monica Kass RogersParticipant @monicakassrogers 2 years, 11 months ago Hi! 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? Maryann K. HumphreyParticipant @maryannkhumphrey 2 years, 11 months ago 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 Stefanie WolfsonParticipant @stefaniewolfson 2 years, 11 months ago Unfortunately I’m located in New York, about 30 minutes north of NYC. But I appreciate the help! Laura PughParticipant @laurapugh 2 years, 11 months ago 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! Maryann K. HumphreyParticipant @maryannkhumphrey 2 years, 11 months ago 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. Maryann at (608) 426-6260 Laura PughParticipant @laurapugh 2 years, 11 months ago Thank you! I’ll be in touch this week – would love to get up there this Saturday.
