Does anyone know how to go about finding collectors who might wish to buy older items that are not quite antique worthy?

I have two old typewriters (1930's and 1950's or so) That I would love to sell. Shipping would be brutal as these are small but heavy.
I also have some older photographic equipment. Old video and old cameras and weird lens filters etc. that will also be tough to ship.

Truth is, while I would like a few dollars for these items, I am more interested in finding them a home where they will be appreciated and enjoyed.

Any leads or serious advice is welcome.

EBay...there are folks who collect and buy everything. My son is currently into "old" CRT Televisions, and he finds them on eBay.

Beside Magic forums, there are also forums for pretty much everything else, and many of them have "for sale" threads. You'd have to do some searching, but if you find them, you'll be connecting with more die hard fans and maybe willing to pay more.

No help from me on shipping. We had old 1920's Underwood typewriter that we sold on Craigslist. It was a beast and instead of dealing with shipping, a collector drove 4 hours to come pick it up.

Good luck
