Custom Painted Die-cast Items: Have your business logo, lettering, and graphics, professionally custom painted at the manufacturing factory in China on your choice of over 600 die-cast cars, trucks, airplanes or golf cart. They make great business stimulators, advertising giveaways to special customers or prospective customers, employee incentives and retirement or company anniversary milestones.
The custom painting is done in China when the cars, trucks, planes, etc., are being manufactured, with the same quality detailing as that seen in retail stores around the country. They do not custom paint less than the minimum order quantity specified on each of the custom painting pages which varies from 250 to 5,000 units, depending on scale size.
Jensen Working Model Steam Engines: Use one to power your mini workshop, erector set or other mechanical projects. They also make great student teaching aids.

Business Opportunity: After over 26 successful years in the antique and collectible business, we would like to retire. We're located midway between Chicago, IL and Milwaukee, WI in the central business district of Zion, IL and one mile from beautiful Lake Michigan. Buy the building or the business or both and have a turn-key operation. Prefer to purchase property for investment purposes? The downtown location is perfect for starting or relocating most any small business operation. Being directly across the street from a recently opened 84 room Best Western Hotel, the location is perfect for opening a restaurant, gift shop, doctors offices, clinic, etc.
The Chicago area "Cancer Treatment Center of America" is less than three blocks away and brings us patient and family walk in traffic every day, without spending money for advertising, although occasional local classified newspaper advertising brings in larger ticket buyers for items not suitable for transport on commercial airlines (most patients and their family members fly in and fly out).
Clicking on the "Business Opportunity" link below will take you to the real estate listing on our website, not the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) website. We prefer to save several thousand dollars in realtor fees and Multiple Listing Service (MLS) fees by using our own attorney to handle the purchase and ask a lower price for the building. Financing (if needed) to be the responsibility of the buyer.
