Thanks to everybody who visited for our Anniversary Sale over the 2019 Labor Day holiday weekend. Thirty-two years and many many books sold!
Yes, we now carry a number of different series of trading cards, mostly from the 1980s/90s. There are some sports cards, many super hero series cards (Marvel, DC, Wildstorm, Image, etc.), and lots of art cards (Vallejo, Wrightson, Bell, Kaluta, Canty, etc.). The new stock includes sealed boxes, card packs, card sets, signed cards, chase cards, uncut sheets, and other loose cards. We also have a new flip rack full of posters, prints, Colossal Cards, and other illustrations.
Because we just didn't have enough stuff, we decided to bring comics back into the shop. We currently have more than 25 short boxes full of single issue comics and some comic bundles for people to look through (organized, even!) and are always adding. We just put out a number of Preacher, Batman, Archie, Scrooge, Wolverine...etc., etc., ad infinitum. We have a small box of comics-for-kids in the children's room, including Looney Tunes, My Little Pony, Adventure Time, and Classics Illustrated. Star Wars and Doctor Who fans will find some comics with our sci fi series books. There are also a number of long boxes full of adult comics (we are talking very, very adult, for ages 18+ only) available to look through on advance request; these are not out on the floor because we are aware that kiddos get into everything they can reach. We just acquired a HUGE comic collection and will be processing through those over time. If you are looking to sell comics, give us a call; our comic buyer is available in the shop Thursday-Saturday or by other appointment.
We have recently acquired a large collection of antique toy tractors. They are already truckin' on out the door (ha!) but there's more to look at.
Until this collection is gone, we have MTG cards for sale in the shop. You can dig through the more common cards ($.10 each or 6 for $.50) or pick up something a bit more collectable for $.50 each and up. Please ask if you'd like to take a look at the more expensive cards as they are in one of our locked cases so the cards don't disappear...like magic. *poof*
Two years ago we slightly altered our buying policy. We need time to process and shelve what we have incoming so: We do NOT buy for cash on Monday or Tuesday. You can bring in one small bag or box of books to trade only on Monday or Tuesday. We do buy Wednesday through Sunday for cash or trade credit. Please also be aware that if we have been inundated with trading or buying we may suspend buying on that day until we work through what we have. If you are coming from a great distance or have a large number of books please call us at 541-994-4453 to be sure we can accommodate you when you come.
