Everything Star Wars Updated 8-17-15

Posted

Some who have visited my site may already know that I used to own the only all Star Wars store in the world. How I opened that store and how I lost that store is a whole other story. But needless to say that Star Wars is very close to me, it always has been and always will be. Even during those ten years when I was not in the business of selling collectibles or in any way attending conventions Star Wars was always on my mind.

In this new blog, I will try to keep up with the world of Star Wars, something I tried to do nearly 20 years ago in my monthly catalog and the website that I created back then too. There are so many fan sites and entertainment sites that do what I will try to do, but we will see if I can add a personal feel to it or perhaps a more organized site.

Thanks for visiting.
