We recently received a box of DC Star Trek Comics and a few other books/magazines with Star Trek articles. They are in good to great condition. Here’s an interesting article about the series created in the late 1980s:
We received this amazing selection of The Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Series, featuring The Three Investigators: Jupiter “Jupe” Jones, Peter “Pete” Crenshaw, and Robert “Bob” Andrews. The series is for young teens. But the plots and suspense are intriguing.
We have about 20 of these books. The series, written between 1964 and 1987 is made up of 43 books. But in doing a search, it was a bit challenging to determine Alfred Hitchcock’s role in these books. Below is a quote that might tickle your interest:
So did Hitchcock write these?
Well, NO! Evidently, he was paid for the use of his name on the books. In researching, the answer is a bit challenging to find. This quote may help:

Bob Lackey is no stranger to Havre de Grace, having lived here for 23 years. He shares in his bio:
He briefly explains on his website that he shares Havre de Grace’s history through the characters of Ben and Sonja Pulaski.
A “History Junkie…
with a vivid imagination,” Robert F. Lackey shares a bit of his journey with the Pulaski Saga in this interview with Barbara Evers. It can be found on her website.
Robert (Bob) Lackey keeps the adventure rolling in each of his 10-part series while giving us a great deal of Havre de Grace history in a most enjoyable way. Stop in soon and look over the series. A great idea for a gift for anyone who enjoys adventure and history – especially if they’ve been to Havre de Grace, MD.

Bahoukas has just received an interesting collection of old newspapers.
Old newspapers can give us the feel of a particular time period, details of history from the news stories and editorials, and a good deal about life through their ads and human interest stories. So why do people collect them?
Well, often they’ve kept papers from a historical period – a war, presidential news, disasters, and such. Sometimes a newspaper may connect to a particular birthdate, death, a favorite sports team, and other more personal topics.
This 1927 newspaper is in good condition for coming out of someone’s attic.
Japanese Surrender – WWII
We have others in our recently acquired collection of old newspapers. It’s so interesting to read from the very day of these events. In many cases, these are complete newspapers giving you the opportunity to really get the atmosphere in our country surrounding these historic moments!
Why Would Anyone Collect Newspapers?
Sometimes, newspapers writing of historical events were tucked away only to be left in their hideaway for a later generation to discover. But there are collectors who save papers of historical significance. Others collect them for the feel of a particular time period, a birth or obituary, news of someone famous or notorious, and for an event in the family’s life.
There are even collectors who love to save the advertisements, whether for a particular product or brand, or just advertising in general.
Whatever the reasons, we have a rather wonderful collection that, if you love old newspapers, you may want to come in and take a peek. And you can be sure – we’ll be watchin’ for ya!
As we keep reminding you, we have something for each and every age, taste, and style! Now, we know there are adults that have Pez Collections (Just ask George about his!). But we’re sharing some fun items for kids this time.
… love PEZ collectibles. And George is our expert on All-Things-PEZ.
