Like you, I collected flyers as planned to use as temporary chipboard wallpaper. Alas one day, I got fed up of taking up space and felt that there was more to life than my raving. I ended up throwing virtually all my flyers away.
Why oh why I tell myself now!
I have around 6 flyers left, which are either sentimental or worth an absolute mint. This is a little less painful knowing this but imagine there are plenty of people who relate to our sob stories.
Noone can take the memories away ;0)
: Guess I shouldnt have thrown out 4 boxes full of flyers fron 87 to 92. Went out Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun night pretty much every week for those 5 years. Never a night (or morning) that I didnt add to the collection so I guess there was approx 6000-8000 in total. And pretty much everything in 87 to 90 and most of 90 to 92.
: All were TOTALLY MINT - used to collect them at partys and put them in a safe place in the car (never folded or sat on them, wrote tel nos on them ( know how it is!), put in back pocket, no blu tac, etc). I had planned to make a montage on my wall but never got around to it.
: Sunrise, Genesis, Back to The Future, Biology, Shoom, Spectrum, etc, etc, etc...... They were all, all there.
: And now I find out that they were worth a fortune. Unreal, pass the kleenex, sob...
