African Masks
6 African hand made masks
Next up are these  beautiful and unique hand carved African masks made in Kenya, Africa. These are nice home decorations if you are into that type of stuff. But nothing good comes out of them just laying around collecting dust. So therefore, these will have to leave the way by eBay.

Vintage Batman 1989 The Joker and Batman movie posters

So I found 2 other movie posters that I actually bought with my hard earned money as a teenager back in late 80's. These 2 movie posters are about the Batman movie back in 1989. The first poster is The Joker played by Oscar winner Jack Nicholson. That poster is still sealed in the original plastic that it was shipped to the movie theater.

The 2nd Batman (1989) movie poster is that of Michael Keaton dressed in the Batman suit on the poster by himself. Unfortunately, this does not have the plastic cover on it any longer as it was broken and eventually peeled off. It looks a little worn on the edges but it is not ripped or torn. The poster does not even appear to have been opened at all.

I have had this nice little toy for a while. I didn't play it as much as I thought I would play it though. It was played during my breaks working overnight to stay awake. Played it at home sometimes but after a while you want to move on and play another game. This item has been SOLD SOLD SOLD!

Check out eBay for more plug and play TV handheld games.

Karate Kid 3 (1989) Movie Banner

I found a Karate Kid 3 (1989) movie banner and posted it on my site It's in very good condition in my opinion. Just a few wrinkles from being rolled up. I remember also having The Fly (1989) movie banner that stars Jeff Goldblum. But I am unable to locate it. It's possible I may have sold it or thrown it away many years ago I will keep looking.

Posters, Books and Magazines. Oh, my!

I have so many books to get rid. I was able to trade-in some to Amazon with what they will accept. But for compensation they only issue an Amazon gift card. Which is not bad if you are able to save up and buy something off your wishlist with them :). The library of books I have collected over the years range from Computer related to history to African-American history to Sci-Fi.

On the movie poster side, I have posters I collected while working at the movie theater as a teenager dating back to late 1980's as well. Some of these I bought, like Batman (1989). Other posters I acquired, such as The Fly, were given to me after the movie left the theater. Don't think I will get much for those but would be nice to get some value back on them.

As far as the magazines are concerned, I have some vintage Apple inCider magazines lying around I will need to get rid of as well.

Posting more items today

Between last night I have posted a childhood old Buck Rogers comic book I bought when I was in grade school. And this morning I posted a used HP Keyboard (KB-9970).

Also created a twitter account in case anyone out there wants to follow and see what I am posting, etc.

So much stuff....

What do you do when you come to a point in your life where you have collected so much stuff or just simply have stored it away in a storage facility and never to see or touch it in years? Some people would just simply toss it out in the trash when they got ready to clear out the storage site. Others, would sift through their belongings and give it away to an organization such as GoodwillThe Salvation Army or some favorite charity. Perhaps there is a family member or close friend that may need some of the items especially if they included clothing.

But what to do with those nostalgic games, movie posters, childhood books, loved ones jewelry or other items passed on after their death? These are some of the challenges I have been faced with after cleaning out my storage and not throwing away most of the stuff. I could create a museum to chronicle my life but then who would really care?

More fortunes
More snap shots of items
So what looks like a pile of nothing may actually have some value to someone somewhere in the world. Indeed, my first yard sale did allow me to offload most of my PlayStation and Xbox games and consoles. I think I will continue on that route along with selling items on eBay when seem fitted.
