    He has some amazing stuff. A few display only items including a Napkins 1st and 2nd draft along with original pencil sketches for the S/L. I personally don't collect proofs but he has a ton, many signed.
    After going back I would have to say that price wise he is a bit on the higher side. David has spoiled us I think! However, he seems willing to negotiate. The first time I went in and bought three pricier items I asked if he would knock a little off due to buying all three and he did. I'm in the middle of another possible purchase now.....
    With that being said, I will ALWAYS continue to see what David gets in because they both have different and sought after items.
    Bricks and Mortar stores will always need to charge a little more in order to cover costs.

    It was great to see a stephen king store, great proprietor, very knowledgable. And patient. Made my list of needful things when I win the lottery. Bought a UK blockade Billy and shining keychain. Everything else on hold until lottery. Win

    Oh yes, I absolutely agree Simon and even with the upcharges for brick and mortar his prices mostly range in the fair market value. Trust me, I've bought 7 books there. So far

    I was able to stop by Gerald's shop a couple times while in town, it was an amazing place with a great presentation!! Gerald was very welcoming and happy to answer any questions you have, I look forward to visiting again, the vibe was professional, pleasant and accommodating!! I suggest ANYONE who is in the area to stop by and check it out!!!!
    Thank You again for your hospitality and it was great to meet you!! What a thrill to walk into a store based on Stephen King Collectables!!!!

    I flew to Bangor last night and met Gerald at his store this morning. I had a great time! He took the time to show me everything he has so far. He will have more iinventory in the months ahead. We had a long conversation about all things King (and I learned a ton) and he drove me for photos of King's house and the cemetery where Pet Cemetery was filmed. I only had a very short time but really enjoyed the time I had with him. I picked up a few items during my visit and just truly wished I lived closer...I wholeheartedly recommend his place to everyone. You will not be disappointed!! His stories of how he acquired certain rarities is, for me, always fun to know. I wish him many more years in Maine! We even ran into Stu Tinker at King's House giving a tour. Over the years, I've bought thousands from him and now met him. Quickly but...

    Just wondering : so is Gerald done with collecting King for himself?

    Dumb other question : "the family has bought some books from me in the past..."
    Does he mean the KING family?

    No he means the family that has asked Gerald to sell the Darwin book on their behalf.

    I believe Gerald is still very much a King collector, a lot (if not most) of his shop display are books from his own collection and are not for sale, he is just giving the collector public an opportunity to see some of the the rarer books that they would otherwise never have the chance to see "in the flesh" so to speak. If they happen to purchase something else that IS for sale in the shop, then so much the better!

    Simon is right... I contacted him on two books and they are not for sale I noticed them in the media and Facebook posts. Hey..... some day but not now.

    Yeah. I also think this is more of a hobby (selling books, I mean) than something that he has to do to make a living. I for one am glad that he decided to share some of his wonderful books with the world in this way. The chances that I'll end up in Bangor one day are very small so I'm happy to see whatever he posts online.

    OK so it's more some sort of small musem than actually a shop then?
    I guess that he may sell more common items, such as first editions and some signed copies, but the rare items he keeps them for himself?

    Nope, It's a shop. It's just that his rare SK items are not for sale, however unlike some of the high end collectors, he has chosen not to lock them away in a basement and is sharing them (at least through glass) with others.

    He did the same for my wife and I. It even smelled great! If I understood correctly, that copy has been sold to an asian collector, but the person agreed to let Gerald keep it for a while as a dispaly item. So glad he did.

    His $450 for a signed Hearts in Suspension is a good price. If you buy it, make sure you tell him you found it here.
