and welcome to Chris' Old Life Magazines.
Thank you very much for stopping by.
My name is Chris Palmer, I am the owner, president, warehouse
man, office person, shipping and receiving guy and janitor among
many other things. My wife Laurie is the part time phone
answerer and gift wrapper and I guess, vice president. She is
also a nurse at a local hospital which takes up most of her
I have been in the LIFE magazine business since 1990 where I
started with my first batch of 1200 Life issues which I bought
from an estate. I started selling in an antique mall in Southern
California where we lived at that time. My wife and I now live
in Knoxville, Tennessee and sell in two malls here as well as
the internet. This site was started in 1996 and was a part time
venture for a number of years. Over the last eleven years it has
grown and has evolved into my fulltime job now.
We have an inventory of around 25,000 original issues of LIFE at
any given time. The largest majority of this collection has been
built by buying from people who have contacted me and have had
collections that their parents or grandparents have saved over
I travel the country buying from peoples attics and closets and
have a great time doing it. I meet wonderful people and hear
great stories about how someones parent or grandparent had saved
every issue that they had received from an original
Since I started selling LIFE magazines on the internet I have
always believed that the thing that could set us apart from alot
of other internet businesses is customer service. To me this
means that a customer can actually talk to someone when they
want to order or just have a question. Our 800 number is
available right on the front page of the site and I am available
to speak with even in the evenings and most weekends.
Also quick shipping is something I try to have for my customers.
The vast majority of the time an order will ship either the same
day or the next day. Many people are buying these for a birthday
gift and need them right away. We of course have overnight
shipping for the procrastinator and we even offer expert gift
wrapping, ( by my wife), and can ship the magazine straight to
the person you might be buying the magazine for.
We also offer a money back guarantee if not completely satisfied
for any reason including the condition of the magazine. Please
look at the "Our Magazines" link on the front page, there I
describe our magazines.
Please give us a try if you want a great gift of nostalgia for
yourself or a hard to buy for loved one. We have had thousands
of happy customers over the years and I get emails and calls all
the time telling me how the magazine was a hit at a party or
anniversary and even sometimes the most interesting gift that
the person received.
I will do my absolute best to make sure you have a great
internet buying experience.
