Paul Degen was my first vintage vendor EVER. He joined our Wednesday night North Shore Flea in Highwood back in the day.  When I started the Vintage Garage, Paul was one of the first to sign up.

Today, Collector's Agency is a staple of the Vintage Garage. Find him in the top right corner of the ramp. Look for the Mr. Potato Head (not for sale!) and you'll know you are in the right place.

Always great "mantiques" from Paul, as well as records, metal boxes, paper, signs, radios and all sorts of other old guy stuff. Mantiques as a category was made for Collector's Agency!  He's also creative and brings lots of things for vintage projects like letters and numbers from old license plates.

Check out the great shot below of Paul with 2 of the cast members of "Chicago Fire" last season and visit him on Facebook and Etsy.
