Re: 1950s Refrigerator & Stove to dispose of
I would recommend looking for a local salvage supplier that might be interested. There is an "antique plumber" in my area who not only sells vintage things, he has a host of replica "vintage" as well. There used to be a few vintage building product suppliers as well, though I've been out of the business long enough now that I'm not sure what's available locally for me. At any rate, between Google, Craigslist, and your local yellow pages you're likely to find someone who will find a great new home for your vintage appliances.
