Wanted Items

 

FUTURES is always seeking specific items for collectors, and general categories for inventory. If you have something that might be of interest, please note the following:

 

  • If you may have things I seek, contact FUTURES with the appropriate information.  I am anxious to hear from you!
  • Email: CONTACT ME FIRST with initial information on your item(s). DO NOT SEND PHOTOS AT THIS TIME. IF I want further data, I will ask for it. Unsolicited digital photos will be deleted, sight unseen.
  • I MUST know exactly WHAT you have – so, book references, xeroxes, original tags, photographs, etc. are essential information to me. I need to know the DIMENSIONS, MATERIALS, COLORS, and CONDITION in highly accurate detail.  If you do not know the difference between naugahyde and leather, formica and wood, gold and brass, or glass and plastic, say so.  It will save us a lot of time.  If at all possible, I want the local option of viewing it in person.
  • I will need YOUR asking PRICE.  Do NOT ask me to appraise the item if you are offering it to me for sale.
  • Let me remind you CONDITION is everything. If your item is torn, stained, cracked, chipped, bent, missing parts, not operable, rusted, functionally dangerous, crumbling, faded, split, repainted, reupholstered, moth-eaten, or just generally nasty and mediocre, there is no chance I will be interested. FUTURES is only interested in the BEST.
