1. Wooden spider silhouette I bought two of to hang on my wall/use as a template for a home-painted Spider-Man t-shirt.
2. Japanese import Spider-Man T-shirt that I could never wear without spending two years on a starvation diet.
3. A Fisher-Price badge maker I bought in order to make merchandise to sell alongside my comics (only used once).
4. A stash of disposable tablecloths to use at shows.
5. A framed carrier bag from 1997/8 featuring a John Romita jr. drawing of the Ben Reilly Spider-Man, hung upside-down because it looks better that way.

I've attached a picture of the Japanese import Spider-Man t-shirt, as worn by the actress Sarah Alexander in the sitcom Green Wing. It might actually be the same size as the one in my drawer.
