    Hello,

    I recently purchased a old store front building that was packed with tons of stuff. It was like a time capsule from the 70s. After going to through everything, I found two (2) Free Flow stoves. Both stoves are still strapped to their shipping pallet and have never been used. After using Google, I learned about Bullerjan. Is there any added value to these because they are new, unused from the 70s? (I assume 70s). There is a metal plate that was on the one that the box disintegrated so I could see it has a model number and a person's name. Are they marketable in the US? The locals that I have shown them to basically do two things 1) stand back in disbelief of all the junk that was in the building and 2) comment on how cool the stoves look and ask if I want to sell them. Does anyone know of an expert I can send pictures to so that they can be authenticated and valued?

    But yes they are absolutely marketable here. I am sure there are plenty of people who would want one. It is just a matter of finding them.

    I previously thought they were from the 70s but the model tag indicates 1980

    That just isn't as good looking as some other similar stoves I have seen. These were never great performers but they look cool so they have some appeal.

    Ok, good to know. When I get them out from the rest of the clutter I will clean them up and see if I can sell them.

    Thanks,

    You might be able to market them to guys looking for a heater for their "man cave" or whatever. It looks a bit industrial/hot rod. I think these stoves are even still in production in Germany.

    Yes, I found Bullerjan when I googled Free Flow stove, etc. I’ll put them up for sale locally and see how it goes. I was trying find out if there was anything ‘unique’ about these since they apparently are the original ones prior to Bullerjan owning the design.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Yes the design is unique. But there are other ones that are much better looking. I have seen them with glass doors and cast labels instead of crappy weld levels. Functionaly they look like they will work the same. Lots of quick heat but burn through tons of wood to do it.
