This image is showing you a section of the left side of our Manchester shop. The left side holds a selection of our vintage collectable magazines and you may notice some titles that are not listed online such as Adam, Lips, Cover Girls etc. The website concentrates on magazines but you scan see from the image that we also stock old videos and the range that we are offering in the shop at the moment are the Double D range of videos which as the title suggests is big breasted women. The best way to explain Double D is that they were the UKs answer to Score and although not part of the Score empire there were closely related in that John Graham the main photographer for Score was a part of Double D.
Mayfair is our top selling collectable English mens magazine. Mayfair is unique in that its had two top class publishers namely, Fisk and Paul Raymond. Both of them worked the magazine well. The internet caused the eventual demise of the hey day of the top shelf market and it was a sad day to see the Mayfair of old go bust. However, when that day came we were fortunate enough to buy all the back stock from Paul Raymond going right back to Volume 1 Number 1. Some of these magazines were the circulation copies and as such never been opened so came to us in a brand new condition. Nobody has more Mayfair magazines in stock!
The racks you are looking at here showcase our Penthouse stock from Volume 10 to Volume 23. Above Penthouse to the right you can see our huge stocks of Club Confidential from the USA going right back to the first issue which was actually published as a 'Best Of' Club International. That's why underneath the Club Confidential you can see the Best of from that series. All these magazine were bought from the Club warehouse in the USA which were shipped back to London when the company was sold off by the heirs of Paul Raymond.
Bursting With Back Issue Magazines.
This is a shot of the right side of our shop which holds the current issues. By current we generally mean magazines from todays latest issues going back to 2002. Our current issues will contain magazines which as yet we don't sell online such as Janus, Kane, a selection of gay titles from the UK and USA along with everything that we have no interest, which we call our bargain bins and these magazines sell from just 40p. We've got so many magazines coming through the system on a weekly basis we just sell mags out for scrap and we don't just have 2 or 3 mags at 40p, at anyone time we'll probably have 50 mags at 40p. The shop is open 6 days and stock changes daily, with prices starting at 40p what more can you expect!!!
4 Floors Of Adult Mags.
In this image we're looking at Escort from Volume 1 to Volume 17 and Club from Volume 17 through 26. If you buy some of these Paul Raymond titles then you will notice that some of those delivered have stickers on the front that say, Editors Copy or Circulation Copy Do Not Remove. This is because these magazines came directly from the offices of Paul Raymond. The only magazines we are holding back are those that we bought from PRP (Paul Raymond Publishing) that are stamped with the Accounts Department Copy, as these contain the real names and addresses from the readers who either sent in letters or photographs of their wives and the accounts department have identified these people with their name and the amount they were paid for their pictures.
