Where The Toys Are

Amoeba Music Carries Toys

By Brent James

No doubt you’ve got that one piece of vinyl in your collection that’s “worth thousands,” or maybe now that vinyl is making its “resurgence,” it might be time to sell your aunt’s dusty old records she passed down to you last Summer?

Well, it turns out she might have a few more items in her attic you might be interested in. Now more than ever is the time to check, as all those old toys and collectibles you stashed away are turning out to be worth big bucks. Beatles bucks it would seem, with a Rocket-Firing Boba Fett action figure from the early days of the Kenner Star Wars line recently snatching upwards of $17,000 at auction! And there’s no stopping it; millions of dollars are spent each year in the selling/trading world of toys. Not just Barbies and action figures but actual toys. Conventions are held monthly just for the “hunters,” as they’re referred to in the Toy Community. The little kids of the '70s and '80s and even '90s have grown up, and they have money. Lots of it.

Much like a record, an old toy can transport you to another time and place, and the sky’s the limit once you’re there. For those of us that dabble in both, the similarities are numerous. When displayed properly, a healthy collection is nothing short of a work of art. Great pride is poured into the presentation and many hours are spent on being a completist.

But just as the digital age took its toll on brick and mortar record stores, the same has happened with mom and pop toy stores. Big box chains such as Target and WalMart cut out many traditional toy shops, while Amazon and eBay wiped out the rest. Even Toys R’ Us struggled and to this day bankruptcy is rumored to be in their future. Pair that with a sometimes cutthroat market and poor distribution, and you almost find yourself wishing you ONLY collected records!

Amoeba San Francisco

By Brent James

You've been to the shows. You've seen the artists. You've always wanted to be on the Amoeba stage. NOW is your chance!

Running now until December 31st is our indoor sidewalk sale we're calling the Bizarre Holiday Bazaar! We've dug through the darkest, deepest recesses of the building and put all the choice merch out for sale. Best part? It's actually located ON the world famous Amoeba San Francisco stage!

It's a great place for photo ops, on Friday nights you'll be on stage WITH a guest DJ, and you'll find last-minute stocking stuffers such as a Tom Petty hiking bag or a Santana picnic blanket. Not your thing? How about your choice from over 100 different carded Star Wars action figures? Or maybe a KISS action figure?

In any case, there's something for everyone at Amoeba Music. With a different selection every day, you'll never see the same thing twice!

Happy Holidays from Amoeba Music!
