are there so many requests for older appliances, parts, service and
the vintage appliance market continues to enjoy swift growth and
popularity, everything attached to this field is or will soon be in
demand. Parts, services, information, and entire appliances are all needed
to fill the “secondary market”.
IS IT SO HARD TO FIND SOURCES OR SOLUTIONS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT ANTIQUE
STOVES OR APPLIANCE INTERESTS?
most of the equipment is at least a half-century old or more, the original
manufacturer may no longer be in business or may not have anything
relative to the appliance you own, wish to purchase, market or learn
IS THE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY MARKET?
primary market is designated for new appliances, parts and service.
Although the primary market intersects in some ways with the secondary
market (vintage or obsolete), it is normally not a good place to
start your search. Most new appliance manufacturers are only focused on
selling new products or services.
AUCTIONS A RELIABLE PLACE TO SELL OR BUY?
on the net, are being utilized to buy or sell older appliances and parts.
In a large number of purchases and sales, there have been problems
“after the sale” that have brought old appliance lovers dreams to a
screeching halt. Of all the e-mails, letters and calls we receive, the
biggest problem appears to be purchasing from auctions. Here are two
BUYERS ARE NOVICES
- Many novice buyers in the field of vintage appliances are not
“armed” with the right questions to ask a seller before they
bid. Also, during bidding, someone new to the world of old appliances can
be easily outbid which can start a “bidding war”. This is dangerous
situation to be trapped in. (For
more information and an excellent resource manual see

PURCHASE THE RIGHT VINTAGE STOVE at this link http://theoldapplianceclub.net/toac/howto.htm

before you bid.)
CAN BE NOVICES TOO
- On the flip side, even if a seller is completely honest, they may not be
aware that vital parts may be broken or missing from the unit. This will
cause malfunction at the very least or if severe enough, in the case of
an antique stove, you could be prohibited from using the range.
TRUE LIFE EXAMPLE THAT IS NOT UNUSUAL:
have personally heard from people that have spent over $4,000.00 for an
older stove only to find out it failed inspection and was
“red-tagged”. You will not be able to use the range unless it can be
repaired or upgraded. At that
point a $4,000.00 stove has been transformed into a $4,000.00 plant stand.
