Over the past
month or so, I’ve picked up a bunch of really cool pop culture items, including
various Batman, Doctor Who, Archie, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic books. I
scored these at a couple of different Half-Price Books stores, and I got a bunch
of random items as well, such as a vintage Looney Tunes puzzle.
Last Saturday, I set up as a vendor at the DFW Toy Expo, and I had a good time selling a wide variety of odds and ends, including movie and TV tie-in paperbacks, retro video games (duh), Barbie catalogs, pop culture figurines, and some random collectables.
Trades are always fun, and I swapped a Star Wars vinyl art print I didn’t want for $50 worth of video games (including Batman Returns, an excellent Super Nintendo game) to another vendor who was very happy to add the print to his collection. It had been sitting in my antique booth unsold for more than two years, so I’m glad it went to a good home. The vendor next to me had a Pac-Man plug-and-play new in the box for just $10. I would have gladly paid that, but I asked if he saw anything on my table he’d like to trade for, and he grabbed a couple of common PlayStation Portable UMD movies he needed for his collection. Win-win!
I did a pickups video for all these items and more, which you can watch HERE.
