Does the Space Coast Cover Service have a website? I have seen interesting flown items and hardware on eBay, but I couldn't find their website. Thanks.

The Space Coast Cover Service does not have a website, but its proprietor, Ken Havekotte, is a member here.

You can contact Ken (or any member) by viewing one of his posts (e.g. here) and clicking on the envelope icon at the top of the message.

Since we're on the topic, I was trying to search for Ken's eBay store but I couldn't find it, would it be possible to get a link?

Ken will hopefully chime in here, but I don't believe SCCS has an eBay store. Some of the displays he produces are listed on eBay by others.

Unfortunately, SpaceCoast Cover Service (SCCS), founded in 1983, does not have a website or an eBay store in operation, as of yet!

There is a possibility, within two years or more, that a company website might be a new direction to go in.

As Robert pointed out, and perhaps as an introduction to recent new cS members, owner and operator of SCCS is Ken Havekotte, a long-time space exploration enthusiast, promoter, specialist, appraiser and authenticator with more than 40 years experience.

Developing and operating a company website and possibly an eBay store has been suggested beforehand by many friends and aerospace collectors, however, I find myself too busy these days with client-appointment schedules and working on a variety of weekly space-related projects.

The one of-a-kind space company, to the best of my knowledge, is the first company of its kind devoted to Space Age memorabilia; buying, selling, trading, as a vendor distributor, consulting, and the study and research of space memorabilia in many different categories.

Emails are welcome as its always a pleasure to hear from a fellow space enthusiast and collector; khavekotte@cfl.rr.com

Thank you Rich, Robert, and countless numbers of others that have supported me all throughout these years and even decades before Robert had first operated the collectSPACE website, the best of its kind in the world.

As an avid space enthusiast for most of my life, I can't tell you how much I enjoy each and every day "working space" in so many different ways.

Operating my own and unique kind of space company didn't seem at all possible in my younger days. Now, some 40+ years later, I've been blessed so many times over as its truly a labor of love.

My space enthusiasm and passion continues on today, even more-so — I would say — than witnessing my first "live" rocket firings from the Cape in 1968 and at least 350+ times more since covering those first truly breathtaking up-close liftoffs!

Thank you all for letting me live "my space dream come true."

All times are CT (US)
