Is there any good sites you guys go to to just buy neat trinkets? I collect guns mostly but im a sucker for powder cans, barrels, old cartridge boxes, oil cans... stuff that relates to guns. I dont care if its really cheap or expensive, usually if I like the art on it, il get it. 

I live in Canada so sometimes prices are insane, I was still wondering apart from ebay, sometimes etsy(?) do you guys have any special sites you look at? 

Pictures, for fun.

I agree.  Wards Auction would have a lot of what you're looking for.

Because there's less of this stuff circulating in Canada?  No doubt import duties on stuff bought in the US contribute to the cost.  Shipping cost into Canada is also insane.  Makes a mockery of "free trade."

Not only insane but scary.  I won't buy from Canada and I won't send to Canada.  Customs is keeping a lot of stuff that is being shipped. It just disappears.

I do the same thing when shipping within US.  NO insurance, because those are the packages most likely to be stolen in a bulk-mailing center.  Also, trying to collect ins. value on any kind of antique is an ordeal you won't forget.
