View Full Version : looking for something worthwhile to collect?

Fredonias are very reasonable and fun to collect. There are sleepers galore and these watches present a much better alternative to crummy and common AND BORING railroad watches. http://webhorology-mb.infopop.cc/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I collect them and AND I practice what I preach! http://webhorology-mb.infopop.cc/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The nawcc lending library has a book by Kraus which is good reading on the subject. http://webhorology-mb.infopop.cc/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My family are from Randolph, NY and my wife's family are from Jamestown. Fredonia is right in the middle, and I've been through there a thousand times. It sure would be fun to find some of their watches without paying the crazy prices on Ebay. Anybody have a nice one for sale?

I second that (about anyone having one). Never been to Fredonia, but it's in New York, so I have a propietary interest. Jessica

By the way, what does "peruser" mean? Jessica

Modersohn: Websters Dictionary defines PERUSER as "to examine or consider with attention and in detail, READ. Peruser (n) One who does this.

Some were upset about the infopop version of Newbie. I believe this defines those that do not post yet constantly visits this site.

Fredonias don't seem that inexpensive to me. The few I've ferreted out (online, of course) are pricey. Where do you guys go?

By the way, I have yet to find a dumpster in NYC anywhere near a jewelry store in a locked back entrance, or otherwise with anything in it except an amazing amount of wood (and rusty nails) and a few refrigerators.

So where are these fabled dumpsters?

Great tool finds for watches when they auctioned off the Bullova watch factory--much if the stuff got trashed!
