Welcome to antique advertising, my name is Ben i am 21 years old and i pride myself on collecting, buying and selling top end advertising items. I have had a strong passion for advertising and everything old shop since i was 14, started out by buying tins at low end prices of a few pounds, as i got more and more into the world of street jewllery i realised how many diffrent ways companies advertised and the quality items they had commisioned to do so. The more time i spent studying the hobby and meeting people with the same interests the more i started to consider enamel signs and the printing on the tins artwork. I believe that the enamel sign side of the advertising world really should be considered working mans art as some of the workmanship that went into the process of crafting such a detailed image with so many complex colours, all for it to then being fired in a kilm all made from glass is incredible.
So i decided to set up antique advertising to use it as a way of trying to preserve some of the high streets history and make sure it finds its way to people who will actually enjoy the item and give it the place on the wall or in a cabinet that it deserves. The amount of horror stories of people throwing signs, showcards, tins ect into the skip is criminal. so i have dedicated a very large part of my life driving all over the country trying to preserve the history. while making myself a bit of money at the same time. I would also like to use this website as a platform to try and get younger people like myself interested in the hobby to keep the history alive.
