Does anyone have or know where I can buy antique anything related to bee keeping.  I would like to display in our store hoping to arouse interest for new comers.  I'm not sure what would qualify for antique,  maybe over 50 years old?  Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

i like VA.  you might have a shot.

hey, watch out on ebay.  they tend to list things as antique when they are not.  like everything on there, you have to know what you are looking at....but it's one of my favorite places to find odd stuff  Smiley

Hello Shane,

I don't have antique equipment, just rundown old stuff.  I do have an old book called Life of The Bee.  Let me know if you really want it.

If I'd known there was a beekeeping shop in Staunton I might have had a look when I was there in November.  So long as it was just a look and not too much excess luggage. (That plane I got on at the Shenandoah Airport was more like a model plane.  I bet it was remote controlled).  I did get to an apiary in the area briefly which was nice.
