GETTING FROM A GOOD CAUSE…
The charity shop. Amongst the endless barrage of forgotten fluffy toys, clothes of dead people and tacky nick-naks is a cult film collectors goldmine. Hidden deep within can often be a treasure trove of goodies just waiting to be discovered by those with an aquired taste of dodgy cinema, all at a bargain price! They’re great! This week I picked up the very rare Pre-Cert Big Box of Time Walker for 50p despite being worth £50 online! So, I urge you all to pay your local charity shop / boot fair a much needed visit this weekend. Have a rummage and who knows what you’ll find. Share your finds over on this great thread.
Now, on with the newsletter…
