We also have thousands of posters price just $5 and $10.

The Old Magazine Store in Skokie, Il has thousands of posters from all over the globe, but which it has no longer has enough room to display. Posters collected by eccentric Bob vastly overwhelm his available space and are now all on sale for $5 to $10 each, less each for larger amounts. Only hitch is you can’t ask what he has or where something is because there is no room to organize by topic, etc. Just come in and plunge in. You may find this exciting! There are finite amounts of each poster on display and no back-up inventory. When all the posters in a display sleeve are gone, they are gone.  With thousands of posters in storage, the selection changes as soon as there is more room to bring in more posters.
