Howdy Trashketeers! If you’re an old Trash customer, welcome back…if you’re a new face, welcome fellow film freak! It’s been a wild ride over the past few months collecting stock, organizing suppliers, building the website, agonizing over the details, but here we are: the birth of the latest incarnation of Trash Video, my video store/HQ for the past 25 years… NOW IN CYBERSPACE.

Here’s hoping the website works… If you have any comments about its workability or content, please drop me a line – I’m new to this kind of selling, and look forward to any constructive criticism (I said constructive!!).

I would have loved to add more items for sale, but time and financial constraints wouldn’t allow me. BUT I have much more in reserve and new boxes appearing all the time, so imagine this is the embryonic form of a much bigger beast, and I have a feeling it will grow exponentially! PLEASE keep checking back for updated stock, PLEASE spread the link, post photos of your newly-acquired Trash treasures, tag me, buy from me, and FEED THE BEAST!!!

There are too many people to thank individually for all their efforts in making this website possible, but I must mention Sean Hennessy and John Mason for the tech side, Cameron Borg for his endless mentorship in the mysterious ways of e-commerce, my cronies at Monster Pictures, Bounty (hi Leslie!), Elio at Siren/Glass Doll Films, Ex-Film evil mastermind Leon, all my suppliers here and overseas (esp. Daniel at Isore, and Duane, Customer #1), and above all my dear old Mum for having put up with the growing mountains of stock. And if I’ve forgotten anyone, apologies but after two months of typing bonus features and ISBN codes into the website the brain is mush.

So…take a look around, please use the “Search” box and tags to find what you’re looking for, and above all, have fun in your new home away from home. I look forward to showing you so many more unearthly delights very soon.

Trashiest regards, Andrew Leavold (Trash Video Archives programmer/receiver/dreamweaver) 19/11/20
