About Us

Soldster is a place where you will find all kinds of collectibles and hard-to-find things for sale at great prices. Soldster was founded in October, 2005 but we have been merchants of the amazing for over 40 years. We are located in the Greater Nashville Tennessee area. We are INTERNET only, we do not have a shop.

Company History

We began buying and selling collectibles and "curiosities" in the 1970s, when, as a 17-year-old, our founder started his first collectibles business. We have been merchants of the amazing ever since.

During the 1980s and 90s, we mailed our full-color catalogs to thousands of collectors and connoisseurs worldwide.

When the Internet came along, we built a successful eBay business, selling millions of dollars of collectibles on the eBay Marketplace. Our eBay username is soldster. We have been on eBay since 1998 and as soldster since 2002.

We created the Soldster site because we want to offer our incredible collections directly to both our regular customers and new collectors as well delivering better value to our customers. Our regular eBay customers will know that buying direct on Soldster saves them the sales tax (we pay it for you) AND gives them first shot at the amazing new treasures coming into our warehouse daily.


Our reputation is our most valuable asset. For over 40 years we have provided an outstanding service experience for all of our customers. In addition to our A+ rating with the BBB and our numerous BBB 5 star reviews, we are also proud, accredited members of the Nashville BBB.
