Here is one of my major scores this summer. My friends/neighbors/junkin' buddies Stephanie & Ray I were out Sale-in' one weekend and I happened upon a big box of vintage Sci Fi Mags from the 50's on up to the 70's ! ! !
Not only I find over 40+ magazines, I found the perfect stand to hold and display them all. The stand was from a Heeeee-uuuuu-geeeee church rummage sale that I went to not once but twice in the same day. The lil' chalkboard was from a pile o' free stuff at yet another sale from the very same day. It all came together perfectly!
Here are pics of just a handful of these treasures! The artwork is so darn cool!
I like the ones with sexy ladies the best, somehow I think most of the original readers of these did too!
There are a lot of different titles too, each with tons of stories and illustrations!
I think the "Other Worlds" have the best cover art. I haven't even begun to actually read the stories, I'm too in love with just looking at them for now.
When I originally found the box, I had made up my mind that I wouldn't pay more than $10 for the whole bunch, even though I know that they are worth more, I just didn't have the budget! When I finally got the attention of the lady hosting the sale, she looked them over and said..."How about $10?" Hahaha! I guess it helps that we put all of the older/ cooler titles on the bottom. What she saw was the 70's stuff. Clever huh?
Here are a few of the novels. Check out that 1st edition Body Snatchers!

Oh man, I just LOVE these so much! My Dad is in love with them too. He remembers reading some of them when he was a kid! I don't know what to do with them though. Should I keep them, sell them, I dunno! I will for sure scan in all of the covers for future crafty use, I'd never tear up the actual books. For now I have them displayed in my bed room, on the rack. I like waking up each morning and seeing them :-)
