Vol.3,Iss.1:Out with the OLD, in with the NEW at University Archives


Out with the OLD, in with the NEW at University Archives

Now that the old year is part of history, we can focus on the New Year. We have been very busy buying new items for our valued customers. It is our goal to purchase a wide variety of historic items in many categories and price ranges. To celebrate the New Year, we are offering new items, followed by some older ones that you may have seen in the past, but we have marked them down by 20% off the current list price.

We strive to bring you the best of the best. In this time of volatile markets, the investment in historic ephemera will retain its value and give you something to admire. We will continue to strive to find unique pieces to round out your collection or to get you started in the right direction. Our knowledgeable staff is always here to help.

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year!
