Arguably the biggest prop and costume dealer in the world. So still here obviously.
* http://screenused.com/ dealer specializing primarily in Back to the Future and Terminator items. Has items from other productions for sale and a gallery of a collection of items not for sale. Email email@example.com
Out of business. Rumors are the name has been sold to prop dealers who have not revealed themselves publicly. One of the owners moved back to Florida and has opened the new company, Icons of pop culture.
The owner still has a web presence but the site is out of date and rarely advertises items or sells on eBay to any great extent. All items are old stock including Starship Troopers which the company was most famous for selling in bulk circa 1998

Owned by the brother of the far superior prop dealer Marcia who in the 1990’s was one of the pioneers if not THE leader in selling props and wardrobe in the USA. Not to my knowledge currently selling.
www.bedlum.net broker of a large range of costume and wardrobe items based in Minnesota
Too many stories are told of this site and dealer. Au’revoir Bruce Hubbard.

Still plodding away David has been a reliable chap that at one point was neck and neck with Propstore but stayed a one man operation. I admire that. Still the person who found one of the biggest catches of Indiana Jones items in the world outside the archive and thus will always have my respect for that alone. Like him I miss the old days.
http://www.rareprops.net/ UK base dealer of props and costumes with things from productions such as Gladiator and James Bond movies.
Gone. Some mentions on original prop blog but now defunct.
http://abacuscostumesandprops.com/ features a variety of mostly wardrobe items from productions such as V, and Babylon 5.
Backlot props was bought out by Abacus. Abacus sold most of it in a liquidation sale and promptly folded. Backlot got more out of Warner Bros. In the late 2000s than almost anyone including matrix, V and Babylon 5 so my hats off to David at Backlot for that. He was a nice guy and I wish he’d managed to continue into the next decade doing costumes.

Possibly Rick Spector? I don’t think The site works anymore but if it’s Ricks site one of the great pillars of collecting. A master of his craft. Particularly adept at old films and furniture.
