In the film business, some prop items are destroyed during their use, such as flash bulbs and paper cups, and are known as "expendables." History For Hire carries a number of lines of original vintage and vintage-style expendable items, and these are available for purchase here.
Being a rental facility,
History For Hire cannot sell its inventory of props. Occasionally, however,
we will de-accession because we do not handle that line
anymore, or it is too worn to be able to withstand further rental.
Those items include doubles on books from our research library and the
occasional prop item, and will be listed for sale within this section. No
other items are ever sold by History For Hire, so please do not inquire. Of
course, we cannot guarantee the condition, provenance, or copyright of any
item sold by History For Hire.
