-You may find that looking into a auctioneer or Merchant
Fixtures/display store will accomadate your needs- I have purchased
both a watchmakers bench and jewelers bench from a local display
retailer/wholesaler at a distinct savings over Otto or Rio.
-Yes- the benches were used- But not oppressively beat up. As well
these locations usually sell older safes and security cases. I
purchased a safe which met (actually exceeded) my insurance
requirements and was able to get it for a lower cost than from the
-The Auctioneers I have encountered that deal in store liquidation
of retail fixtures maintain a business reference and will alert you
if they come across something that suits your business.
Along with the thread in Orchid about the “Economy” and tightening
our collective belts- this may as well be a thought to use the local
auctioneer. Now with alot of bigger stores shutting down- bargains
can be found if you have the right approach!
My 2 cents- be safe and Happy Harvest Feast and Thanksgiving to
