Action Comics 1 and Action Comics 1 Value
Action Comics 1 and Action Comics 1 Value Let’s discuss Action Comics 1 and its value. Publisher Jack Liebowitz had to make some quick decisions about what to include in Action Comics #1 (1938) due to a looming deadline. Liebowitz decided to take a shot at a new comic called Superman and feature it on the anthology's cover. In addition to selling out of its 200,000 copies, Action Comics #1 also ushered in the Golden Age of Comic Books as collectors now refer to it. Value of Action Comics 1 Does everybody wonder what’s the action comic 1 value? Let’s dive into it. In 1938, a copy of Action Comics #1 would have cost 10 cents (USD 1.89 when adjusted for inflation). As of today, however, the comic is considered the most valuable in the world and regularly breaks the record for the most expensive comic at auction. Most comic book fans purchase Action Comics #1 for the cover and first 13 pages. Together, they introduced the world to Superman and Lois Lane. Superman destroys the car of a gangster who threatened Lane in the cover art. Frightened by the sight of such superhuman strength, onlookers flee in all directions. Superman's first comic book shows the hero landing on Earth and introducing his powers. Despite the 200,000 copies brought to market, finding a collector-grade copy of Action Comics #1 in 2021 is difficult. “Kids read them, so they got ragged.” Brothers and sisters passed them down, cousins passed them down, you name it,” explains collectibles dealer Darren Adams. In World War II, the copies that survived the first few years of wear and tear were donated to America's paper drives. In addition, it took decades for people to recognize the collectible nature of comic books. Even comic book fans during the Golden Age did not understand the importance of preserving the medium's history. The Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) was founded in 2000 as the first third-party grading service for comics. In addition to giving collectors peace of mind, the CGC system clarified the rarity of high-end copies, such as Action Comics #1, cementing their value for the new century. Bidding war of Action Comic 1 Someone in West Virginia bought a copy of Action Comics #1 off the newsstand in 1938. Their idea to store the comic in a chest was even smarter. This, combined with West Virginia’s high altitude, created the perfect environment for comic book preservation. “Cool, dry, and dark,” explains a CGC representative. This copy of Action Comics #1 has changed hands several times over the years. Eventually, Darren Adams, the owner of Pristine Comics, acquired it. To give bidders from all over the world a chance to own the comic book, he put it on eBay. In honor of Superman's history, he donated 1% of his earnings to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The comic book sold for $3.2 million at the end of the 24-day bidding war. That was not only a record price for Action Comics #1 but for any comic book at auction at the time. Among the reasons for its success was the accessibility of eBay, as well as the exceptional condition of the piece. CGC gave it a score of 9.0 out of 10, the highest ever for a copy of Action Comics #1. Record break Action Comics 1 value During the 1980s, a collector won a stack of old movie magazines at auction. A copy of Action Comics #1 was nestled inside one of the magazines as the collector sorted through the stack. I don't know if this was a preservation strategy or a lucky coincidence, but it was enough to protect this copy of Action Comics #1 from the elements over the years, preserving it in excellent condition. CGC graded this copy at 8.5 out of 10. This piece was offered by the online auction house and marketplace ComicConnect in April 2021. The comic still achieved $3.25 million despite its slightly worse condition than the 2014 example. This is a record for both Action Comics #1 and comic books in general. Although the buyer remains anonymous, he is described as a newcomer to comic collecting, with this being only his second major purchase. Heritage Auctions offers the latest copy of Action Comic #1 This month, Heritage Auctions will offer another copy of Action Comics #1 (lot #91001) after an already record-breaking year for the comic book. As of writing, proxy bidding for the lot is at $320,000. CGC grades this duplicate of Action Comics #1 at a 5.5, which the organization characterizes as "a somewhat better than expected collectible with a few moderate imperfections." Bidders ought to likewise take note that some preservation work has been done on the comic. That incorporates new staples and support of the cover. Prior to arriving at closeout, the outstanding authority Jon Berk possessed this duplicate of Action Comics #1. While functioning as a legal advisor in Connecticut, Berk gradually amassed his assortment for more than quite a few years. He saw it not just as an opportunity to record comic book history yet as an added safeguard "a piece of American folklore." Media Source: AuctionDaily

Types of Credenzas : A Brief Guide to Purchasing.
A credenza is a piece of classical furniture first designed centuries ago. It is basically a small table used to hold up books and other items. A credenza is found in almost every library as well as every day living room. However, the design that is common today can be traced back to the 15th century. Before getting into the history of the credenza, it is important to know what they are made of. Dining Room Settings A Modern credenza, console cabinet, hutch or other table and chair furniture pieces are all small furniture pieces originally designed to be placed in a dinning room setting. While all of these pieces of furniture may be similar and in some cases can even be used interchangeably, there really are some major differences to consider when searching to purchase one for your home. Here is a look at what each type of piece of furniture is made of so you can better understand what you need. The major difference between a credenza and a sideboard is the space within the piece. A credenza is a smaller piece of furniture made to fit inside a larger piece of furniture such as a table. This type of storage space allows for the easy storage of small items and supplies that need to be stored out of sight. On the other hand, a sideboard sits free to sit on a particular area of a table and is commonly used to support a larger piece of furniture such as a console table. If you are looking for credenza to buy, then the better option will be to buy  it online by just searching modern credenza for sale or if you like Vintage, then Vintage Credenza for sale. Sideboards and cabinets are commonly seen in homes of all sizes today, which makes them an extremely popular choice when searching to purchase a credenza. While there was a time that sideboards were considered a decorative furniture piece, they are commonly used now-a-days for their storage capabilities. Sideboards are typically smaller than their larger counterparts and can feature open shelving or drawers while some pieces of this type of storage space are made with solid wood panels. A credenza is perfect for a buffet or kitchen counter as a sideboard. A sideboard is designed to fit snugly against a wall or corner of a dining room and its primary purpose is to provide storage. However, a buffet and other eating areas are designed to have open shelving or cabinets in order to store many different types of dishes and food items. Because of this, it is very common to find a sideboard with a large storage drawer or cabinet underneath. Buffet Sideboard Credenza Buffet sideboards are commonly found in the dining room of large homes. In addition to the storage space, these cabinets are also used to house cutlery and serving tools. Because of the size of these buffets and the amount of utensils normally used, it is not uncommon for sideboards to be found along the walls. The sideboards of these buffets are normally wider than those of a credenza and feature a single drawer on each end. The sideboards are made of more durable material such as granite or marble, which allow them to stand up to the rigors of daily use without deteriorating. When choosing a credenza for your home or office you will want to consider the style and material. There are a wide variety of styles to choose from. Some people love the traditional look of a wooden credenza. Other people prefer the contemporary look of a stainless steel or aluminum piece. The color that you choose will depend on the rest of the design in the dining area and should be coordinated with the wall color and other decor accessories. If you are looking for additional space, a double sideboard can help to provide additional space in corners. A buffet is another item used interchangeably with a credenza. Buffet style cabinets are ideal for homes where there is limited counter and table space. These cabinets are designed to accommodate food and beverages, which makes them a great addition to any buffet style kitchen. Most of these cabinets open to reveal a counter top and a large storage area for dishes, glasses, silverware, table linens, etc.
The Console Table is Great For More Than Sitting
If you find that your living room is missing something, a new sofa table could be the exact piece of furniture that you're looking for. Or perhaps you've got a spot that needs a little more attention than a sofa table ever could give it. No matter what your need is, there's a sofa table for you. And since there are so many options available, it's possible to buy one to fit into just about any existing setting. From modern homes to grand old homes, mid century sofa tables are sure to fit in anywhere. Sofa tables and console tables have been used in homes all across the globe for centuries. And in many cases, they've been used for more than one purpose. For instance, early mid century modern sofa tables and console tables were actually used as outdoor furniture pieces. They would be placed outside on areas with a lot of sunshine. They were sturdy, durable, and able to withstand the elements and the wear and tear of time. Over the years, the scope of these tables has broadened slightly. They can now be found in a variety of styles, materials, and colors. But there's still a place for the traditional sofa table in the modern home. Sofa tables and console tables in the living room are a fairly common combination, although they're certainly not a rule. In fact, contemporary sofa tables and coffee tables are often used together to create a one-two punch. For example, you might pair a modern sofa table with a coffee table in an architectural design that features clean lines and a minimalist design. Or you might pair a traditional sofa table with a modern coffee table in a living room that features an Asian or European flair. You could even put them in a room that is designed around a particular theme - Hollywood style, Indian, Mediterranean, or Japanese just to name a few. Of course, in terms of actual sofa table sizes, this one doesn't vary that much from other forms of furniture. It can fit in any size of living room. It's also available in different heights, which is great if you have small children or pets. Usually, console tables are three to seven inches deep, but you can buy them in different sizes depending on your needs. Many are a half-length sofa, while others are a long two-thirds length. Another nice thing about living room sofa tables is that they don't clutter up the space. They sit quietly and are not visually distracting. They don't stand out against the rest of the decor, and yet when they're needed, they're there, ready and waiting. Console tables are ideal for your family's entertainment area as well. With your TV, DVD player and a gaming system in place, it's easy to entertain friends and family in style. If you have a dining room table that's larger than the sofa tables, you could even use it to create a buffet style table for entertaining. You could put small side tables or chairs down next to it and then place the dessert plates, silverware and serving bowls on top of the dining table, creating a buffet table for your entertaining. Another nice thing about console tables is that they can double as a buffet table for entertaining. All you need are a couple of serving dishes, a bottle of wine and some finger foods, and your next party is going to be a hit. Sofa tables are also easy to store away. You can even store them in drawers, under shelves or against your wall if you have the space.

Why Coffee Tables Are Called Coffee Tables
Mid century coffee tables are also sometimes known as cocktail tables. But where did the name originate? I mean why not tea tables or wine tables. Is it because it’s the most popular drink in America and you just add it to “table” and it stuck ever since? Or is there more to it? Well let’s first look on why coffee became the choice drink of America. Ottoman Turks introduced the beverage and the word “coffee” to Europe, where it eventually spread to America. Because of that some say that they also introduced the “coffee table” as well. But that is not confirmed. Coffee started to grow more and more in popularity not only in America but all over Europe it already had a strong following. After the 1812 war, Britain put a ban on all imports of tea to America. So Americans naturally drank less and less of tea and more and more of coffee. Finally coffee in America seemed to get that edge over tea that is hasn’t lost since. But where does the table come in? The original coffee table, simply put, is a regular table with its legs cut off to make it lower to the ground. The Japanese already had these short tables figured out a long time ago. But as the Japanese were sitting on the floors with their legs crossed, the coffee table was to be used with a sofa. It’s not very clear as to the exact time that the modern term “coffee table” came to use, but some put it around the late 18th century to the early 19th. Whatever the case, if it was the decision of the British, or even Chinese, we’d be calling it “tea table” today. And actually in those lands they do often use that term. But as the fact stands, the cup that most often lands on American tables is filled with coffee, and so the name has stuck. So here we have it, the modern coffee table, now more popular then ever. And it’s true it doesn’t really matter where it gets its name, I mean some people won’t even let you put coffee on their supposed “coffee” table. But it’s just neat to see how things have come a long way and evolved through time. Olicore Studio has a wide collection of mid century modern tables for sale.

Was ist Vintage-Mode?
Es ist ein Trend, der Stücke aus einer anderen Zeit und einem anderen Stil als dem, in dem wir leben, verwendet und wieder einführt. Im Allgemeinen gilt ein Stück als Vintage, wenn es nicht später als im Jahr 2000 hergestellt wurde. Aber um genau zu sein, was Vintage-Mode ausmacht, ist auch ihre Qualität und Langlebigkeit! Um als Retro zu gelten, muss das Kleidungsstück mindestens 20 Jahre alt sein, was bedeutet, dass es von tadelloser Qualität ist. Beim Vintage geht es also mehr um Qualität als um Quantität. Es ist viel mehr als eine einfache Mode, es ist vor allem eine Kunst, in der Gegenwart zu sein. Woher kommt das Wort "Vintage"? Aus der Önologie! Die Wissenschaft des guten Weins... Alle alten Weine und Spirituosen, die ihren Geschmack und ihre Qualität im Laufe der Zeit bewahrt haben, werden als Jahrgang bezeichnet. Im Jahr 1980 wurde das Wort dann ein Meister der Mode. Er bezieht sich auf alle Kleidungsstücke aus den 1960er Jahren oder früher. So nehmen junge Models alte Stücke aus dem Kleiderschrank ihrer Großmutter und tragen sie mit Stil. Dadurch erhält dieses Wort, das der breiten Öffentlichkeit bisher unbekannt war, natürlich seine volle Legitimität. Heute wird die Bezeichnung für alles verwendet: Wir sprechen von Vintage, um einen alten Gegenstand, unsere Großmutter oder einen Wandteppich zu bezeichnen, der uns zu alt ist. Aber wie Sie sicher verstanden haben, bedeutet dieses Wort noch viel mehr: Vintage ist eine ethische Mode mit Stil, die Altes wieder aufwertet, um einen positiven Einfluss auf die Welt zu haben.
