The other day fellow cinephile Ryan Fowler
from Facebook's Horror VHS Collectors Unite
board graciously posted some pictures of his VHS tags - meaning the video store labels that were plastered on the sides of most rental VHS tapes. I had posted my membership card collection
almost ten(!) years ago, but never would've thought to do this even though it makes so much sense. With video stores virtually extinct (save for a few brave souls
keeping the faith alive) all the tapes that used to populate these establishments have been scattered to the four winds winding up in yard sales and flea markets all across North America. Check out some of mine below.

|“More” you say????|
|My favourite so far for sure!|
|The one and only!|
|My copy of Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except! has a history!|
These only covered the first three shelves of bookcase #1, so I imagine there will be a few more of these posts in the future. Who knew I had so many of these? Thanks to Ryan for the epiphany.
