When Ben Oppenheim started the Norwood Salvage Co.. 1190 Washington street, South Norwood, last August, just two months after getting out of the Army, he had no idea that his business would grow to the extent it has.
Yes, Ben is going great guns right now. he’s glad to say, and the motto he started out with, “we buy- everything, including junk’ still holds true.
Ben is in the market now. as always. for any and all kinds of junk In other words, lie’ll buy almost anything you might throw away.
All you’ve got to do. to get Ben at your door, is telephone NO 2315 It’s a handy number to remember.
Ben also has a big stock of used furniture in good condition, especially suitable for that summer camp. And now is a good time to make your selections, before the rush starts.
Some of the items Ben has in stock are ice boxes, bureaus, tables, stoves, chairs, cloth rugs. beds, camp healers, gas plates, oil burners. 55-gallon oil tanks, floor and table lamps, kitchen sets, wood stoves, gas stoves, plumbing supplies, playpens and baby carriages.
Ben also has a special lot of 25 used theatre seals, the ‘fold-up* type, with cast iron base, stuffed with cotton, and with leatherette-covered scats and armrests. Sounds like a good deal for someone!
