very user friendly store for you to see all of the great items we have available.  More items are added all the time, so visit often and check out what's new.

And Now we have a place where you can find many of the items mentioned on this page, with the opening of our new retail Space in beautiful downtown
GOLDFIELD, Nevada!!!  Located at 306 Crook Street, GOldField ART & Business Services is open most days from 10am to 5pm.  There is a break
sometimes when one of the "Moms" who run the store have to pick up kids from school, or take a can of gas to someone stranded outside of town.  
Sundays are iffy, but if the sign is out, there is always someone in the store to give you a hand!

The heart of ClassicNevada is the Historic mining town of Goldfield, Nevada.  Goldfield was, at one time, the largest city in Nevada with a population of
over 25,000 people.  It is located 180 miles North of Las Vegas on a two lane paved road that links Las Vegas to Reno and Northern Nevada to Southern
Nevada.  In December 1902, two prospectors, Harry Stimler and Billy March found Gold just West of town.  Goldfield became known as  “Queen of the
Mining Camps” because of its population, saloons, and other forms of luxury and “Entertainment” such as gambling and the “ladies of the evening.”  

We show our appreciation of Goldfield by supporting the town and publicizing events and institutions like "Goldfield Days" in August and the Esmeralda
County School District year round.

They were on their way to being
tossed out as old garbage in mid
2007 when an astute collector
saw them.  After saving them
from oblivion, he showed them
to us and agreed to make them
available to you!  He penned the
following dedication that appears
on the CD…

"These telephone directories were
rescued from a trash pile. Their
preservation is dedicated to the
memory of the early residents of
Goldfield who helped make
Nevada what it is today."

Stories of the ART CAR "RECYCLED":
The Aluminum Folk Art Truck Created by Slim Sirnes.
Compiled and Edited by S. Sirnes Artlip  & N. Sirnes.
This is a series of Articles  written by Svein "Slim" Sirnes which
appeared in the Goldfield Gazette, Death Valley News and other
central Nevada Newspaper in which his popular "Slim Sez" article
appeared for many years.  These stories deal with some of the
travels and tribulations encountered by a retired Millwright when he
becomes a "woven aluminum" artist with an Art Truck.  Proceeds
from this book are being used to pay for repairs to the truck that
will make it trip worthy once again.  Please be advised that while
Slim wrote a great story, his grammar and spelling left a lot to be
desired.  Only minor changes were made to the original stories,
otherwise, what you see is what he wrote!
