Arizona Advertising

This page is dedicated to the wide variety of items used to advertise businesses in early Arizona. These range from smaller pieces such as tokens, match safes, pocket mirrors, bottle openers, lodge medals & ribbons, buttonhooks, milk cap picks, souvenir spoons, etcetera, to mid-sized items like ice picks & tongs, crates, tins, trays, to larger pieces like signs.
Our collections of these items have grown considerably over the years, and we are always looking for quality pieces to add. Please take some time to look over examples from our collection.
