I would like knowing what it has been the latest thing that you have shopped on Marilyn, if you want to share it with us this is your forum.

That was my last acquisition, I bought this purse for a week at a shoe store. They were selling more merchan on Marilyn and it was very difficult to elect wink3.gif

Although I´m selling my material, I cannot avoid buying some purse or clothing wink3.gif

I love that purse! smile1.gif

Last thing I bought was some old calendars on eBay, I got really lucky too, there all in great condition and they sent me 2 extra ones that they didn't sell at no extra cost, plus the shipping came out cheaper than I thought it would! I wish more sellers on eBay were that nice! marilynbybrandon_190.gif

Ummmm, it was a GORGEOUS huge Marilyn Poster in a frame, it's a beautiful black and white picture of her lying in bed.

It was reduced from £50 to £15! I was so happy, because I'd always wanted it but felt it was a little too expensive.
Bargain! lol

Our last acquisition in the Maite Minguez Collection is Marilyn Monroe's personal address and telephone book, circa 1960-1962. I hope in a few weeks explain something about what we discover in the book.

Christie's explains that the book containing approximately 160 entries of friends, colleagues, film studios, restaurants, couturiers, stores and beauticians, some of the entries inscribed in the hand of an assistant [possibly May Reis] including the Chateau Marmont, George Cukor, Columbia Studios, Desilu, Joe Hyams, Jax, Jennifer Jones, Jay And Judy Kantor, Gene Kelly, MCA, Patricia Newcomb, Clifford Odets, Saks, Eva Marie Saint, 20th Century Fox, Shelley Winters, Bob Willoubey [sic], with amendments, deletions and additional entries inscribed in Marilyn Monroe's hand including: Susan Strasberg, Rupert Allan [Monroe's Publicist], Elizabeth Arden, Jennifer & Sam Goldwyn Jr., Phil Gersh [Hollywood Agent], Sydney Guilaroff [Monroe's hairdresser], Judy Holliday, Oscar Levant, I. Magnin, Dean Martin, May Reis [Monroe's secretary and personal assistant], Ralph Roberts and Lee Siegel [20th Century Fox staff Doctor], the book also containing other interesting notes in Monroe's hand, including:
- a page at the back inscribed MMM, containing a separate list of contact telephone numbers including those for Monroe's Doctors and Psychiatrists: Greenson [Ralph - Monroe's Psychiatrist], Hyman Engelberg [Monroe's Personal Physician], Bernard Bergler, Marianne Kris [Monroe's Psychoanalyst], Inez Nelson, Norman Norell,
- a page under G inscribed with an aide-memoire ...Kitchen, Hotpoint, RCA whirlpool, electric can opener...Eliz. Arden hand lotion...
- and a page inscribed Misfits, Doc Erickson..., Dorothy Bliss...M -- 12305 Fifth Helena Drive, L.A. [Marilyn's last Los Angeles home]

Wow... I haven't bought anything Marilyn related for such a long while now. I guess that lately I haven't really felt the need for it. That said back in July I was looking for books to read when in vacation and found a comic book called "Shooting Stars" about Marilyn Monroe. I bought it so I could take a closer look at it.

Basically it's a summary of Marilyn's life through important events of her life. I've scanned the cover for you + the page where she goes in the desert with DeDienes for a photoshoot + a page about SGTG.

Hope you like it !

PS/ Feel free to repost anywhere you'd like please just let me know you're doing so smile1.gif
SusenSkellington
I love the illustrations! Thanks for those scans! I wish I could read it clapping.gif
Paju
Mels, that comic book seems really interesting. Could you scan some other pages from it? If you have the time of course smile1.gif
I bought The Unabridged Marilyn yesterday clapping.gif More about that in the Book Club biggrin.gif

Oh my gosh Lauren! What's weird is about 5 days ago my mother was showing some stuff she has saved for me from what I got when I was little. And over 10 years ago (I think thats when they came out) she had got that same Marilyn stamp sheet for me. She still is saving it for me in storage since I don't want them ruined or lost. It's just neat how I'd run into this topic and to see you have them smile1.gif

And wow SusenSkellington, I can't believe you found that coin purse at a dollar store! I will have to take a picture of my Marilyn mirror my daddy got at Big Lots(used to be Pick and Save). It's shaped like her head and such. It's darling.
Paju
I don't usually buy MM stuff this often, but...
Yesterday I bought a postcard and a magnet.
Today I bought a beautiful MM bag. I tried to find a picture of it on the internet but couldn't. Anyways, it's black&white and kinda big and very pretty biggrin.gif
