Interesting, but if anyone sees something of interest, proceed with caution!  Although the machines may look as if they may not have been stored in that barn for long (it's easy enough to wipe them down), years of storage can be harder on a machine than you think.  Mice would be my first concern and I'd take that note in the ad about ('they have all been checked') to NOT mean they are in working order.   A few years ago, Phil and I stumbled on a place in upstate New York with a ton of vintage appliances stored in sheds and an unheated building.  They were overpriced at the time they were first found and ultimately wound up getting auctioned off for peanuts.  After grabbing a few items at this auction, we found that most of the items 'worked' but had plenty of other issues!! Seeing that GE Frost-Guard refrigerator in this ad reminded me of one I bought that "ran"...all the time 'cause the compressor was shot!

Wow, what a great collection! Among the very nice finds there, isn't that a 1957 Frigidaire 40" sheer look in charcoal that I see? And an early 60s Caloric that gives the great 'jet age' design, but in a practical 30" that would fit into many kitchens designed for the standard 30" range. A great place to go on a Christmas shopping spree, gifts for everyone on your list!!!

This is someone who restores and sells appliances on Facebook under "Appliance Archaeology, LLC" and I believe the owner is a member of AW.
