WAREHOUSE SALE Part II :: SHELTON’S YARD SALE :: THIS WEEKEND!!!

September 07, 2018 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, EVENTS, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, NEWS, Other Events, Sale!, Special Offers, This Just In

YARD SALE 9-8-18 (3)
SHELTON’S YARD SALE/
HEROES WAREHOUSE SALE (part II)!

Thanks to all who joined us for last weekend’s Heroes Warehouse Sale! We appreciate all of you who fought the heat (some of you for hours on end!) to dig through our sale stocks. We know many of you were traveling for the holiday and couldn’t make it. While we hope you enjoyed the holiday, we also feel bad that some of you missed out on the sale, so we decided to throw a sequel of sorts – this very weekend! While there will be a few comics and trade paperbacks to dig through, there will be many other kinds of things to shop for, including furniture, art, frames and framed art, toys, glassware and mugs, bookshelves, dishes, lamps, dvds knicks and knacks, and much more!

Join us this Saturday from ‘very early’ to ‘very late’ and Sunday from ‘pretty early’ to ‘kinda late’ for Shelton’s Yard Sale/Heroes Warehouse Sale (part II)! Like last weekend, this sale will take place under a big tent behind our shop. Come pick through some of Shelton’s non-comic collections and take advantage of some crazy deals. In doing so, you’ll also be helping us make room for even more comics in our new warehouse!

Anyone who makes a purchase from the yard sale will get a coupon for an immediate discount on any same day in-store purchase you make. Non-reserve customers will get 10% off any new comic or trade paperback purchases, and reserve customers will get 25% off all new comics and trade paperback purchases if everything is purchased from your reserve bag. This is a great opportunity to clear out your reserve bag for an extra discount! Consider this the first of many Pop Up sales we hope to offer our customers. Make sure you sign up for our weekly newsletters and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You never know when our next pop up sale will be announced!

HEROES DISCUSSION GROUP RETURNS THIS SATURDAY!

August 28, 2018 By: Karla Southern Category: DISCUSS, Discussion Group, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, Master Class, This Just In

Black Hammer Vol 1

 

Ever finish a comic and wish there was someone to discuss it with? Now’s your opportunity, as we bring back an old Heroes favorite during this weekend’s Labor Day sale. Join us this Saturday, September 1 at 2:00 P.M. for a brand new chapter of the Heroes Discussion Group! After much deliberation over what book to discuss, we settled on a favorite of both our staff and customers: Black Hammer volume 1: Secret Origins.

If you enjoyed the first volume of Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s breakout superhero mystery, then be sure to stop on by the shop this Saturday for a lively discussion about legacy, rebirth, discovery and much more. This time around, the discussions will be jointly led by veteran discusser Andy Mansell and our well-read young staffer Samuel M. Reynolds-Oosting.

We couldn’t be more excited to share conversation about some of our shop’s favorite authors and illustrators with fellow customers and readers! It’s always a great part of our local comics community, and we hope you’ll join us for this discussion and some of the other exciting ones we’ll be announcing soon! Don’t forget, the discussion starts this Saturday at 2 P.M., but the Labor Day sale kicks off at 10 A.M. and runs all the way until 10 P.M. on Saturday, with Sunday and Monday’s hours both being 10 A.M. – 6 P.M. 

-The Heroes Discussion Committee  (also known as Andy, Sam and Seth)
