This page will list special sale announcements, price reductions, new additions, and changes to the Collectibles Shop's site in the last few months, so bookmark this page to easily keep up, as they can happen anytime, or several times during the month. This is as close to a blog as I ever hope to get. I'm NOT buying, thanks. Site navigation links are at the bottom of all main pages, including this one. Right click on links and choose 'open in new window/tab' so you can go back and forth without having to reload this page. "View" links are set to open in a new window/tab, so just close them to return here.

Search box has a 75 character limit. RESULTS WILL OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW/TAB on a Google search results page, so don't panic! The results will be from MY site matches, so just click on the links that match best for what you're looking for. You might want to right-click on the results and choose to open them in a new window/tab too, so you don't have to keep going back to reload that page for the next result. Use terms in quotation marks to get exact results for that phrase (if it exists that way), like for a name or title, if more than 1 word. To get a wider range of results, use just 1 name, or general words from a title. DON'T search on 'all (whatever thing)' to find all listings of something. The search engine will look for the WORD 'all', and you'll get too many non-relevant results. And the results will NOT show ALL the mentions of a word/phrase on every page, just what it thinks is the first relevant one. To find all instances of your search words on a page, use the 'Find' function of your browser, it's usually under 'Edit' or a Menu icon along the top of your browser. Use your browser's Help file to find and use that function.

February:

Ah, February, the time of year everyone decides to finally start buying my stuff again, to read while being stuck in the house in the frozen north. Right? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

January 2020:

And another year begins. Hope for better all around. Stuff needs to go folks, need the room in the new place!

Willing to ship most of it except the large items or easily breakable stuff. Various framed art prints, various china dinnerware/porcelain items, antique and newer furniture (nice 1800's blanket chest, multiple wood chairs), antique and newer kitchen stuff, 1856-S $3 gold coin NGC VF Details grade (View large pic), '70s-'80s vintage purses, various figurines, vintage Osmiroid 75 fountain pen/ink/practice pad/calligraphy books set, and more.
