Looks like it could whip up a pretty good milkshake, too!

I was at the Ventura Swap Meet yesterday where I hardly ever find any monster stuff and came across these items.



I spent a total of $30 on all three items. It's the most monster stuff I've found there since I ran into the guy who bought Ray Ferry's stuff from an old storage unit.

I went to some yard sales and the local flea market this past Saturday and did manage to find stuff for myself.  At the flea market for $5 total I found the old Revell kits of the Visible Man and the Visible Woman.  They are unassembled and complete.  They're not monster models, but I'll take them for that price.



At the same flea market, I got these records 3/$1.  The Psycho one is an Italian pressing.



Best of all for me was at a yard sale where I got a lot of older (early 70s to the early 80s) local TV Guides, mostly from the Philadelphia Inquirer, with some from southern NJ's Courier-Post.  They're roughly the size of a comic book, and if I stacked all of them up, they'd be about 5 ft. tall.  What's great about them is that the covers are slick paper, not rough like typical newsprint.  They feature covers for a lot of popular TV shows, but the 2 that made the whole thing worth it to me were these 2.  One features Darren McGavin from Kolchak: The Night Stalker (my all-time favorite TV show) and the other featured Dr. Shock the local horror host that I watched growing up.  He was also the inspiration for our UMA friend Dr. Shocker (that guy that keeps pestering Dan Roebuck).  I'll probably sell off the majority of them at a yard sale at some point, but definitely not these 2.  These are like 2 Holy Grails.

There was a large tub and a couple of boxes full for $10.  I would gladly have paid $10 each for those 2 special ones.  I didn't know they were in there or even that they had existed.  There are hundreds of them, close to thousand, I'd guess.  So we're talking 1 or 2 cents each plus a free storage tub.

Tremendous finds, Rob!  I love those tv guides!  And the PSYCHO lp is a knockout.  You're the modern counterpart of the Golden Dustman!

Those TV guides are a fabulous score.  If you deliberately set out to find those, you'd probably spend years searching fruitlessly.
