One of my life-long dreams has come true – I am now the proud owner of my very own comic book spinner rack!
The spinner rack was a hallmark of a by-gone era, when comics could be found at grocery and department stores. My first introduction to comics was by way of the Gold Key three pack spinner racks, where you could by three comics for a whole $1.00 (!). While my spinner rack is not “vintage”, it still holds its own. Assembly was very easy, and my total cost for the rack was $90 (including shipping), purchased from eBay.
All that’s missing is some signage to adorn the top of the rack. I’ll be designing a “Hey Kids! Comics!” sign sometime this week.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Here are some obligatory photos:
