Toys have been doing really well for us online, the thing with toys is you have to hold a lot of stock and a lot of stock takes up a lot of space. I’m glad we got that warehouse a few months back, have a look at the processing table that’s at the back of Big B Comics on Upper James, yikes, that’s the table we process the weekly comic orders. Those boxes have to go and they have to be gone before the new book processing day which is Tuesday, Looks like my Ford F150 will have a few loads to run over to the warehouse.
Our warehouse is about 15 minutes door to door from the shop and on a route where there is little traffic if you pick your times. We’re still trying to define this fact properly and use it wisely but for now, we seem to be doing knee-jerk reactive work with regards to product flow between the two sites. Always room for improvement I guess.
Shunting boxes over to the warehouse can be tough work and a guy can work up a good appetite and an even better thirst getting all those boxes safely across. Luckily the warehouse fridge is up to the challenge, as you can see there is some cheese, Gouda, Swiss, Cheddar and Monterey Jack are in that tray, the garlic Kielbasa is in there too and some other dried sausage I forget the name of. There is a big bag of coffee in case it’s an early morning move and the beer on hand this week is Canadian and Dutch. For emergencies, we even keep a little hooch in the cupboard, for emergencies.
We had another great week of eBay auctions, I believe we set a couple of new price records again this week including a whopping $1270 for a CGC 3.5 Amazing Spider-Man #6, the book blew past the last sale by over 20%.
The book I’d like to feature this week is this gorgeous copy of Teen Titans #21 graded at CGC 9.4 with White pages, a tight, clean copy with a strong cover full of colour and gloss. It sold for $239.39 on our eBay auction and I think the buyer stole it. High-grade 1960s DCs like this deliver scarcity and collectability at bargain prices compared to the crazy run happening to the Marvels right now. Advantage Buyer.
