For over 40 years, Vintage LeFtOVeRs has been devoted to the restaurants and culture that evolved along the Mid-20th Century American roadside.
It all began in the early 1970’s when I shared a meal with my friend, Gary, at Nathan’s Famous Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY. Instead of throwing out the paper hot dog wrapper, like most of us would do, Gary took his wrapper home—and framed it! Gary saw the minimalistic design and pop art beauty on the green and white wrapper that advertised “Nathan’s Famous Restaurant.” Gary’s vision inspired my appreciation for the advertising art of an era.
What began as a hobby of chasing after collectibles turned into a profession. I pursued my passion with private dealers, at auctions, conventions, yard sales, flea markets, swap meets, and mail order catalogs I created. I began selling on the Internet on Amazon, as “NRGGRN Books” where I continue to maintain a 5 star performance record.
This website is the next step as part of the vintage collectibles community for over 40 years, as a buyer, seller, and author. An article I wrote in 1984 for “Collector’s Showcase Magazine” featured beautiful photographs Karen Atkinson took of my restaurant-related collectibles.
Vintage LeFtOVeRs is a loving testament to Gary and the many enthusiastic collectors, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, decorators, designers, and dealers that continue to inspire. This site is both a store and an informational blog. Feel free to use both as a resource, as some of the rarities we sell may not be familiar to all collectors and enthusiasts.
