Fandom Yard Sale Anyone?
So, I am in the process of dejunking my house and to help with that, I have to get rid of a lot of fandom oriented stuff that I’ve collected over the years. Right now, I am cataloging everything that I am going to be selling/giving away. All prices will be negotiable. I just want it out of my house and I would love for it to go to someone that would appreciate it.
Some of the fandom things I will be listing:
- Doctor Who Magazines from the mid-1990’s
- Star Wars and Star Trek comic books
- Trading cards from various series (including: Star Trek and Babylon 5)
- Manga from various series (mostly random issues)
Everything will be on a first come, first serve basis. If more than one person is interested and the first person falls through, it will then go to the next. If you see something you want and you think it’s too much money, make me an offer. Chances are, you’ll get it.
Any questions? Please feel free to send me a PM.
This is a thing I’m going to be doing over the next few weeks. Time to get rid of all the shit I don’t need anymore.
these are beautiful, but why would you ever do this to a book?
Okay this is something I have to answer because as a bookseller, as a bookseller working in a used bookstore, this is something I have to deal with daily. People get mad at me or express something like profound disappointment when I indicate that we recycle what we can’t use, and some of that recycling is the employees using books to make art and/or crafts like purses, buttons, collages, jewelry, etc.
You know why we do it? Because we love books. We recycle them so they can be made into new books by a company that we pay to do exactly that. We make them into art because sometimes there is nothing else you can do with them and the thought of just getting rid of them seems like a waste.
You may love books and hate to see them “destroyed,” but tell me what you, personally, are going to do with a full set of Encyclopedia Britannica from 1994? That’s 26 books of outdated information. When you have a stack of Twilight books that is literally two feet tall, is it really absolutely necessary to preserve the integrity of their bookiness? Or might it be more worthwhile to give them a second life? As a new book, as art, as something other than an object that takes up space in a store where we need as much as possible to sell the books you love and that we love too. I wouldn’t do this to, say, the Gutenberg Bible or a first edition Virginia Woolf, but something we see several times a day every day? Art is a pretty good fate for an otherwise unsaleable book.
No one is asking you to make incredible mountain ranges out of the books you love. But please consider that same love might have something to do with why people make the things they do out of books.
Some days I really don’t know how I managed to become a productive member of society…
So. I bought my son the Muno (from Yo Gabba Gabba) beanie baby toy today. And the more I look at it, the more it looks really really WRONG.
I mean. Look at it!
Please tell me this doesn’t look bad.
I FIND IT ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL THAT ALL THE MAJOR MOVIES AND FRANCHISES WERE TRYING TO OUT DO EACH OTHER.
AWESOME CATCHING FIRE TRAILER.
SUPERMAN AND BATMAN IN THE SAME MOVIE.
THE ENTIRE X MEN CAST TOGETHER.
AND YET THE ONLY THING THIS ASSHOLE HAD TO DO WAS SHOW UP
