Exploring Alternatives

Posted in Shop Talk  by Steven on December 29th, 2008

We’ve heard loud and clear from our high-end collectors- you do not like being forced to use PayPal, even when using a credit or debit card.  I am looking into alternatives that will move us away from eBay in stages, the main problem being the exposure needed to generate traffic for auctions. We may start off with smaller, fixed-price items such as postal covers, until we can find an ecommerce solution in an auction setting that allows us to take credit cards and money orders.

If anyone has a suggestion, post in the comments!

1956 Mickey Mouse Club Magazine

Posted in Interesting Items  by Steven on September 17th, 2008

I was photographing this this morning, and something was bugging me about it. Then I realized what it was- the kids’ holsters are empty, and they’re hiding the fact with their hands.  I guess political correctness is older than we think.

(The magazine is in wonderful shape, though. You can find it listed tonight on the Alexander Autographs eBay account link to the right.)
