    Default antique appliance source alaska?

    looking into restored antique appliances, but all seem to be in lower 48 and PRICEY. Anyone know a source here? Specifically interested in stove and maybe propane fridge.

    Best bet would be a $500 camper on CL from the 70's or 80's won't be fullsize but not many of the old ones were. My three burner stove/oven and small stainless sink and pump came from a camper but they work just fine in a cabin.

    Alaska is a pretty young country, from the perspective of the kind of thing (if I understand correctly what) you're referring to. Most of the "antiques" being sold up here didn't originate here, especially things like 1940's gas ranges and the like. If you want to outfit a yuppy retro kitchen (no offense meant) with restored appliances, you need to go to where most of those things exist, and pay the shipping.
