Most of this week’s items come from a bookcase I’m clearing out for
my Marvel Essential and DC Showcase Presents volumes. This will be
a process because the volumes are scattered throughout a great many
boxes and because I need to buy a second bookcase. I have a lot of
these thick trade paperbacks.
In addition to these new items, I have previously offered items at,
in many cases, reduced prices.
For those of you who’ve asked, once the last already-assembled and
ready-for-shipping mystery boxes are sold, then I’ll start taking
orders for new mystery boxes. When I’m ready to take orders, I’ll
announce it in a bloggy thing and on my Facebook page.
Here’s how my VAOS sales work...
First come, first serve. In other words, the quicker you e-mail me,
the better your chance of getting the item or items. Only e-mail
orders will be accepted.
All the items are in very good or better condition unless otherwise
Items will be shipped via United States Postal Service. There is
a $5 shipping/handling charge for up to four items via media mail.
Add $1 for every two additional items. The charge helps defray my
Payments are by check, money order or PayPal. My PayPal address is
the same as my email address. Purchases will be shipped within a
week of checks clearing, money orders received or PayPal payments
Because this is a one-man operation done between family, household
and work responsibilities, these items are only available to buyers
within the United States and to APO buyers.
