Lucyilove Posted November 22, 2012 Report Share Posted November 22, 2012 Inspired by Neil's wonderful thread of pix and information from his Lucy "box", I've decided to start my own thread of a few pages from my nearly 30-year-old Lucy scrapbook, 100 11x14 pages filled with clips of Lucy from the late 1930's into the first decade after her death. I started this book around 1984 after a few years of saving clippings of Lucy from magazines and newspapers. I also obtained clips in the mail, many from an elderly lady who apparently clipped every star photo from 60s/80s magazines she had ever owned, had them sorted by star, and sold them at the bargain price of $3 for 100 of assorted sizes plus postage. She commented to me once I was the only person who had ever bought Lucy clips from her (shame on you older fans! though I'm sure if you'd known about this little goldmine you'd have wiped her out in no time. I myself was just out of my teens and just getting into collecting so I actually wasn't that rabid a buyer from her, just a hundred or two every few months although I ended up with hundreds of pix of Lucy from her I imagine she had thousands, don't know why I ever stopped buying them.) I also would buy vintage clippings from the 1940's and 1950's from a lady who sold them at various prices, ranging from a quarter to a small piece to perhaps $3 for a full page portrait or complete article. These clippings were sent on approval with prices written on the back as well as the original magazine title/date. Of course I bought everything she sent me. I particularly loved these as they were mostly movie related and I've mentioned before I love Lucy the movie star as much as Lucy the tv icon. Have no idea what happened to these ladies but they have my eternal gratitude and really launched me into Lucy collecting land. Here's the cover to the scrapbook (red of course), I think Claude may have seen the cover photo before (a giant picture from I think Star magazine that I laminated onto the scrapbook cover all those years ago). 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
