About Your Moderator Ellene Meece
Ellene Meece is an antique/collectible marketer and organizer of people, products and possibilities in this vast world of Collectible Treasures. Her story involves being educated in antiques and collectibles through her mother who owned and operated a large antique and collectible store in Yukon, Oklahoma on Route 66 and then inheriting her inventory of endless antiques and collectibles after her unexpected passing. Ellene was determined to find a positive path forward to share these treasures with others and thus used this as a starting point to build an online business through her website - www.grandmastreasuresonline.com.

I bought an old doorbell hooked to an AC/DC adapter with a plug. When you plug it in the bell rings.....paid 10 cents for it at a yard sale.

Bought a piece of rope, encased in lucite. Was ancient Egyptian papyrus. Paid 25 cents, sold it for $35.00.

Ok...this is weird! Scary vintage advertising encourages children to celebrate the joys of lead paint. A 1923 coloring book from Dutch Boy.

We actually sold these pants in our men's clothing store back in the early 80's. I never knew they were marketed like this! haha!

Now...here's an odd collection!

Barney Smith, a master plumber from San Antonio, Texas, turned his garage into a “Museum of Toilet Seats Arts”, a peculiar collections of toilet seats, with different work of arts on it. Barney Smith loves showing his visitors his weird museum.
