I buy old drugstores, whether from individuals or at auction. This book is the poorest example of a "pricing guide/valuation" (whether it be at "auction value" or "street value") on drugstore items, collectibles, paraphenalia or whatever. It is very evident the authors have a very limited, unrealistic and deceptive "feel for the market".

Have been collecting soda fountain material for 30 years and this is the poorest yet! Lists fantasy items as real, shows kitchen items as fountain related, save your money!

This book is probably not for the serious collector who is looking for accurate values and in-depth information. But I sure found it a really fun book to browse. It is full of colored photos of Drug Store/Soda shop items, many of which I recognized still being used in the 50's in the area where I lived. There are many photos of Drug Store museums that are fun to look at too. It did help me to identify some of the things I have collected thru the years too.
