I thought I'd share some recent finds on eBay in the last few months. eBay tends to be very hit and miss anymore for Nancy Drew collectibles, however I did purchase 3 that interested me. The first is the Nancy Drew Hidden Staircase poster from the 1939 Movie starring Bonita Granville. This is one of my favorite books and movies so to me it was more nostalgic to own this one. It's a very large poster--no standard frames in the frame shops will hold it so I'll have to have a special frame ordered or built. It's fragile too and chipping in areas but is very bright and colorful as to the imagery.
The Nancy Drew Files promo booklet is not without its wear and soiling but was a promo copy from the 1980s when the Files launched--you don't see these very often so I purchased it inexpensively and will seek an upgrade. I don't mind upgrading inexpensive collectibles--I do have issues with investing lots of money in expensive books and collectibles I know I'll be having to upgrade at some point--so I tend to be pick on condition with those kinds of items.
The last one is the Fall 1994 Country Collectibles Magazine which has an article on Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys on page 68 by Roy Nuhn. It features quite a few covers--in b/w--focusing on the Stratemeyers and some collecting info. I like to collect magazines that have articles about Nancy Drew and have amassed dozens of them--always on those lookout for these :)
