NEWS -- July 24, 2016:

Tayman's will be CLOSED from July 30 through August 7, for a DESPERATELY needed vacation!  Incoming shipments are safe, and we will check e-mails and calls at times -- although a response may take a few days.

This was planned months ago, and this date was set because July/August is the slowest month of the year.  NOT THIS YEAR!  We are QUITE busy, and will try our best to finish as many sets as possible before shutting down.  But be advised, many must wait; we can't help it.  The delayed sets will be the Cadillacs, Lincolns, and exotic models that take extra time.  We happen to have a disproportionate number of these sets, and they are delayed simply because they take considerable extra time.  We WILL get them done on a timely basis, but for the moment please be patient.

Sets arriving this week will, realistically, have a turnaround of 3-4 weeks.  Hopefully this will improve in August.  Seriously, this is still pretty good, but I know some want it right away . . .

As always, Please follow the instructions on the Shipping Page, it makes a BIG difference with turnaround.

ONLINE SHOPPING -- the e-commerce page is down -- if you click on products you'll get dead links.  Meanwhile we've been SUPER BUSY taking care of conversions, so not much time to fix the website.

If you wish to order products, or need to contact us for any reason, our number is 941-371-8924 (Business hours, Eastern time).  Friday is "errand day" so we might not be here.  In all cases, if we don't pick up leave a message -- we'll return when we can.  You can also e-mail anytime.

Atwater Kent Radio  Personal Antique Radio Collection  Gary Tayman has collected many vintage home radios over the years.  While some are still future projects, many are totally rebuilt and are used daily!  One cannot deny that the carved-wood art-deco styling, coupled with the warm glow of the tubes, provides a certain charm that simply cannot be duplicated by any of their modern counterparts.
