If you've already fallen in love with Kramer's Best Antique Improver, you're probably ready to share it with everyone you know. We've created this gift pack just for you. Included are 3 - 1/2 pint bottles of Antique Improver, offered at a discounted price. Each bottle is individually wrapped in a white box with a rustic twine bow. Instructions for use will accompany each bottle, so sharing the love of Kramer's with friends and family is easy.
If you stumbled upon this listing and haven't yet experienced the power of this tool, here is a summary:
This is a unique product made by hand right in the heart of America. Kramer's Best Antique Improver cleans, conditions and restores the existing finish on various materials. It is compatible with wood, metal and many other surfaces. The Antique Improver replaces natural oils and emollients, which are often lost over time. This bottle of Kramer's Best is 1/2 Pint.
Kramer's Best is the ideal product for your furniture, paneling, cupboards, woodwork and floors. It can be used on varnished, painted, shellacked and oiled finishes. It also works wonders on antique toys, tools, guns, collectibles and so much more.
This product helps to preserve the authenticity of many valuable antiques by restoring the finish to the original state. Quite often, stripping and re-finishing becomes unnecessary. Kramer's also halts any deterioration, cracking and flaking found on the surface of many older items. It has also been known to remove blemishes and water ring damage.
Kramer's Best Antique Improver contains no petroleum products, which are found in most modern wood-cleaning products. When first applied, these petrochemical-based products may make your item appear better, but will immediately begin to dry out. As they evaporate, they take the natural oils along with them, and many times leave behind an unpleasant residue. Kramer's is composed of 14 all-natural ingredients - extracts from plants and trees - which are naturally found in wood. These ingredients work along with the wood to enrich it and greatly improve its appearance.
Does this all sound too complicated? Good news: it isn't. The simple wipe-on, wipe-off application of Kramer's Best Antique Improver takes only minutes. We use it daily here at RoofTop Antiques.
Note: This gift pack cannot be combined with any other discount or offer.
This product is also available in our store in 1/2 pint bottles, 1 pint bottles, and 1 quart bottles for your convenience.

We are excited to share with others the magic that is Simichrome polishing paste. We use this product on a weekly basis here at RoofTop Antiques. Simichrome is an all-metal polish used to clean and shine the surface of an endless list of items. It is extremely popular with old car enthusiasts and motorcyclists for cleaning chrome, but can also be used to shine the most delicate silver and gold jewelry.
This is the Simichrome Guarantee:
Simichrome, a German import, is the finest all-metal polish in the world. It's unique, finely-mixed chemical formula produces a rich, brilliant shine on all metals: silver, gold, copper, pewter, aluminum, magnesium, brass, chrome, stainless steel, even plexiglass. In addition to restoring the original lustre, Simichrome also leaves a thin, invisible, protective film which lasts much longer than other brands of polish.
Another unique use of Simichrome is testing for bakelite content. The pink polish can be rubbed on a piece of plastic (we usually use a small amount on a tip of a cotton swab). If the paste turns yellow, your piece contains bakelite!
This can of Simichrome polish contains 8.82 ounces or 250 grams. Each project only requires a very small amount of paste - a little goes a long way. A dab is applyed to your surface and polished with a clean cloth. Any excess is wiped off, and the surface is buffed to a brilliant luster.
We also have this product available in 1.76 ounce / 50 gram tubes.
