The Comic Shop of Randolph, MA

I know we haven't updated this blog lately but it's been pretty much business as usual until now.

  We've done some low key commission selling for friends but nothing on a large scale, until now.

  We have made an agreement with our newest local comic book shop to sell large quantities of vintage comic books through our Etsy shop.

     We are very excited for this new step in growing our business and are confident that it will be a successful endeavor for ourselves and our new friend at The Comic Shop of Randolph, MA.

     Wish us luck, check out our growing selection in our Etsy shop and if you are in the area, go see the best comic book shop on the South Shore, The Comic Shop at 500 North Main Street, Randolph, MA.

    If you have a spare like hanging around, we highly recommend that you stop by Facebook and drop it off at The Comic Shop:

Taunton Antiques Center

It's been a looooong time since we posted anything new here but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy little bees...

   We have been updating our facebook pages:

   Grrl Pickers Facebook page


Laura Vona Lacy Berman Facebook page

    (We have 2 because we wanted a business page but also liked the ability to make "friends" with other folks. The Laura Vona Lacy Berman page was originally also named Grrl Pickers" but Facebook told us we can't do that, that on that sort of page we needed to use our "real" name. Both pages have their own different values to us so we keep them both and (sorta) play by Facebook's rules by putting a "real" name on the page that requires that.)


    Today we officially set up our new expanded shop inside The Taunton Antiques Center!

Ooodles and oodles of wonderful things that for a multitude of reasons, do not work well in our online venues.


   We are VERY excited about our new adventure and looking forward to it being a smash success!

             Wish us luck and if you are in the Taunton, MA area, come and check out the whole Taunton Antiques Center complex. It's a vintage wonderland!

Finally got our original domain name back! Woot! : )

A few years back I signed us up for and we proceeded to use that domain on all of our advertising materials. Business cards, tshirts and a bumper graphic on the back of my car, we were happy with the resulting ability to direct our customers to one central location for all of our online shops.

   Life was good.

 Then my old email got hacked so badly that there was no recovering it, it was a nightmare. The email that I had for about 10 years with no issue at all was suddenly gone. I rebuilt my contacts and thought all was well until I went to visit our site one day and discovered the domain was no longer ours!

   Apparently the host had sent an email reminding me to renew the domain and since I didn't respond (due to my email hack I never saw the renewal message) the domain went up for grabs to the highest bidder.

   At one point I could have gotten it back for about $65.00 plus the 15 bucks or so to buy it back for ourselves but I did not have that kind of disposable cash at the time and I figured, "Who will want our silly domain name? No one! There will be no bidders at auction and then we can buy it straight as if it were a new domain!"

 I thought I was a business genius!

   Then someone else bought the domain and the price started to go up...

  I signed the domain off as lost and reregistered as but I never fully lost hope on our old domain.

   "Someday..." I figured, "We will develop our business to be able to buy our old domain back!"

 I never threw out our old marketting materials because of this belief that one day, some day, we would get it back...

   Our doamin went to auction again and the last price I saw was just over $800.00 (this was sometime last summer). I stopped watching and everytime I saw the tshirts in my closet I contemplated tossing them and starting over with new ones that had on them but I just couldn't do it.

Good thing I couldn't because I randomly checked the host again a week or so ago and Lo!

   Our old domain was back for sale at a bargin basement price! Woot!

      we now have 2 domains that direct to the same place but I don't really mind that small cost when I think that our fans and customers will no longer be directed to a big spammy page when they Google Grrl Pickers.


   Just thought we would post our tale of woe so if anyone else out there might be going through the same thing, don't give up, there is hope to get your original domain back.

   It might take years but sometimes, just sometimes, good things come to those who wait.

       : )
