In the late 1990's Don Creekmore attended a auction in Wichita, KS that had 3 antique slot machines in it. Fascinated, he decided he needed to own at least one of them, which turned out to be a Mills Bell-O-Matic Hightop 10c model. After purchasing the machine, getting all the dimes out of it and then selling it on eBay, he made after all expenses - an entire .10 cents - he was hooked!
Armed with a degree in Entrepreneurship from Wichita State University and having prior experience in the antique world, Nation's Attic was incorporated and became a full time occupation in 2005. That same year a short video was produced and shown on a local PBS affiliate about the business, which can be viewed below.
By offering world class antique slot machine restoration services, being able to easily and efficiently transport slot machine around the country for customers and buying / selling the occasion antique slot, the business took off! Don's wife Jenny Creekmore joined the business in 2009. Also armed with a degree in business from Wichita State University she helped the business grow to where it is today. As the business grew, so did the diversification of the areas specialized in.
