Books, Comics, Toys For Sale Etc.

Post: # 8227Post Garrett Gilchrist »

Contact me directly at gilchristgarrett [at]

I've been having a rough time of it lately. But I've moved back to California, and in an attempt to raise money I've gone into my storage space and pulled out lots of stuff to sell, which you might be interested in. This includes a lot of vintage Star Wars toys, and a large collection of books, most of which are wonderful and which I treasured back in the day. If you're interested in anything, let me know and make an offer.

Most of the books are also listed on Click "Products" then click on the last page [currently page 15], since they're basically in reverse order of interest right now. ... asStoreID=

Will sell most books for $10.

I'm generally asking $10 shipping per order as well, though this can include multiple books.

Star Wars Toys

Lot of Star Wars toys from the 80s. Some 90s toys also.
