I went to a few local antique stores and bought a complete set of loose Archie Comics cards by Skybox, c. 1992. I already had most of the cards (and an unopened box set), but it is always nice to complete a set in my collection.

I bought a full set recently on eBay, and, yes, everything I've come across online, indicates there were only 11 books.

I haven't, but, as I'm always looking (and discovering merchandise I've never seen before), I'll keep you posted!
I bought The U.S. of Archie by Peter Pan Records, c. 1975 from my local antique mall.

Yes, I have a complete set of Archie-themed jelly glasses from Welch's (12), c. 1971-1973. I haven't focused on finding ones with all the different bottoms, but I recently picked up an extra set (6) in its original packaging. If you haven't seen it, a complete list of jelly glasses can be found online at http://www.jellyjammers.org/welchsjellylist.pdf.
I have a complete set of kid's meal toys from McDonald's (6), c. 1987-1988 and Burger King (4), c. 1991. I recently picked up a few from Ruby's Diner (3), c. 1997, but I'm not sure if it's a complete set or not.
I've seen a few Archie collectibles listed in collector's guides focused on Saturday Morning Cartoons, but generally they only include one or two pages on Archie. I might have to make one!
It's been a great year! I became active on the CGC boards, joined Instagram to show off my collection, and joined this Archie Fan Forum to connect with other collectors and fans. And, as some of you know, I've been focused on collecting vintage Archie merchandise, and my favorite find, my holy grail, is *drum roll* ... Archie's Car by Aurora, c. 1969. I've been searching for this model in mint condition for 20 years.
It seems like this is the right time of year to reflect on our favorite purchases of 2018...
What Archie art, collectibles, and/or comics did you purchase?

Very true! I love the hunt, but its becoming harder and harder to find items for my collection in antique stores. I do however seem to come across A LOT of Archie-themed Welch's jelly glasses and McDonald's Happy Meal toys.
I bought (4) Josie and the Pussycats Frame-Tray Puzzles by Whitman, c. 1971 and The U.S. of Archie Vinyl Record by Peter Pan Records, c. 1975 at a local antique store today.

It definitely seems like it, but there are a few references that make me wonder if it is set in the present. Check out What Year Does Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Takes Place? on CBR.com for more information.
And I love that both series incorporate a few Easter eggs or references for fans. For example, Sabrina carries a vintage Archie Comics thermos in Episode 1 and a poster of Archie's Madhouse can be seen in Harvey's bedroom in Episode 5 or 6 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
I'm currently watching Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I'm on Episode 6, and I am really enjoying it. I honestly could have binge watched the entire series over the weekend, but I'm trying to stretch out the series a bit. I need to reread the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics (c. 2014 - ), as I believe they were even darker than Netflix's version, but the series is far closer to its comic version than Riverdale is to Archie Comics. Riverdale is definitely a guilty pleasure, and I see it as a different universe, as its loosely based on the characters.
I purchased my holy grail - Archie's Car Featuring Archie, Veronica and Hot Dog by Aurora, c. 1969 - recently I have been searching for this model kit for years, and I finally found one in perfect condition!
I just picked up a set of Archie Bendy Figurines by Jesco, c. 1989 at a local yard sale
I already had Archie, Jughead, Reggie and Veronica, but, I was willing to buy a few duplicates, as it included Betty, and I have been looking for her forever!
