I think back to the time when we
first started collecting movie posters… I guess that can be considered
early days since it was almost 30 years ago…. they were for us anyway.
At that time, you searched
and searched and were joyous when you found movie posters somewhere
locally. In our area of the country, NO ONE handled movie posters….
There were NO shows and NO conventions, so you had to basically
search around trying to find what you could.
LEGENDS AND THE FALL
We have received great feedback on our "Legends"
section. Unfortunately, we have had to put this section on hold temporarily
due to a little fall that I took several weeks ago. Apparently, not
being able to speak and walk at the same time, I fell on the concrete
of our driveway, seriously spraining and bruising my right elbow.
That has made it very difficult for me to do computer work.
Fortunately, I'm back at the computer, typing my little
fingers to the bone. Unfortunately, I'm seriously behind on site work
and felt that this area was the most sensible to put on hold temporarily.
We feel it is much more important to get our MPDB loaded. As soon
as I'm able, we will bring you more Legends.
Thanks to those that expressed their "get well"
wishes and sorry for the inconvenience.
Be sure to check out our inventory
liquidation sale in Susie's Corner. We will be adding
new items weekly.
SEE YOU NEXT MONTH
....HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN
