Need Help!! Lobby Card And Folded One Sheet Size Bin For Store
« on: December 10, 2018, 12:57:42 PM »
I hope to have a space at an antique center starting some time in January. Much of what I will have there will be individual lobby cards that are bagged and have a cardboard backer for individual sale, as well as one sheet posters the same way (though the posters I will have a photo in there as well showing what the poster looks like).

My question is what can I use so that people can "thumb through" the stuff...much like many of us used to do with record albums in a record store (that shouldn't make me feel old but it does). I am looking for ideas for what might work that would allow people to browse through the lobby cards/folded one sheets while standing there. I will likely have over 1,000 of them at any one time, so will need quite a bit of whatever the answer is.

Do milk crates work? Are they large enough to fit lobby cards? I seem to remember they fit record albums but not sure about lobby cards.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

you'll need to build your own mostly.

for lobby cards, you can get plexi glass dealers to make a clear bin for flipping through lobbies

I've had good luck with some larger file bins from COSTCO.  They have the flip open attached lid.  Work great for lobbies.  But I store folded 1 sheets flat in them.  Not the best here.
