“My in-laws own of those neat old hardware stores, and this was recently discovered in their warehouse where it’s been stored for decades.”
Yes, ebay seller nomoredrama4me continues to uncover and list for sale lots of NEW OLD STOCK items. A cover for an American Brand faucet! Rare tile-in sinks in several colors. Pendant lighting. AND MORE.
Indeed, I followed up with the seller, and she said:
Thank you! I have literally an entire warehouse of new old stock items. It’s all very fun to look through. 100’s of sinks and 100’s of light fixtures. My father-in-law used to buy out old hardware stores in the 60’s and put everything he bought in a warehouse thinking he would go through it all someday and never did. He has given me free reign in selling it off. If there is anything in particular your followers like let me know and I will get it listed so you can have pics.

Precautionary Pam reminds:
When buying vintage — including New Old Stock — with the intention of installing it, be sure to research whether the item is up to current building code and safety standards. For example: Vintage lighting, even if new old stock, should have its wiring checked — and there may be other issues — get with a pro. Vintage plumbing pipes may not be up to current standards for, for example, lead. Painted or glazed finishes also may contain lead, etc. Get with your own properly licensed professionals to help you assess what you have so that you can make informed decisions.
