I agree. I was talking with my insurance agent today (upping my life insurance - scary stuff!) and he’s a baseball card nut. His daughters are into the beanies. I said pretty much the same thing to him. I just think the speculative nature of the product has negative long term effects.

I agree with whoever posted on here or on the ComicKaze Retailer Forum or on the Comic Source Retailer Mailing List or wherever that 1993 is long gone from the minds of most retailers and everyone is looking for the magic bullet.  We all could be concentrating on our core efficiencies, and miss the short term ride, but a year from now when sales are down from beanies, sales could be up a little from Magic or Games Workshop or Anime or Comics or whatever.

From my point of view, I think you have a luxury being in a market where one can do comics-only (or primarily), and do well. My stores cannot, but I am in the position of not having to make a living off the comics stores. It’s easy for me to say “don’t stock this - it’s bad,” but cashflow is cashflow. I guess everyone has to make their own business decisions.

I have a lot of time on my hands these days, and I’m asking a lot of questions.

Why are we doing ______ ? Is it because we have always done it that way and need to change it, or stop altogether? There’s a lot of doing going on in this industry and not a lot of questioning the reasons why IMHO.
