New On eBay - 1970's Heavy Metal Magazines

Here is a find that I had to almost literally pry out of my boyfriend Will's greedy fingers - a big lot of 1970's Heavy Metal magazines. Billed as "The Adult Illustrated Fantasy Magazine" it is pretty risque - so is the movie that was made in 1981, based on the magazines. If you have ever lived with a person of the male persuasion, or if you actually are a person of the male persuasion, I would imagine you have seen it... ;)

Included in the lot I found is the much coveted #1 issue - SCORE!!:

New goodness at auction on eBay this week!

I didn't get a whole lot listed at auction this week - but, I put up two items that I think I can safely call my favorite finds of the year so far:

I saw them and I immediately though of the current taxidermy chic trend - these fit right in, only in a less creepy, more kitsch-tastic way... I was SO tempted to keep one, but made myself list them both!

I listed a few other goodies also:
