Welcome to the page! I created the video below to kick off what I hope to be an ever-growing, active community devoted to something we all do…
Unconscious collections- you got one? What is it -or was it? (now that you’re aware of it)?
Yes! It’s a thing – a collection you’re not aware of- well not as a proper collection. It’s there though insidiously growing over time in the corners of your life. Will you acknowledge it?
There is such a thing as the unconscious collection but once you are aware of it -well- it ceases to be unconscious, doesn’t it?
Are you the owner of a collection by gifting? Did you express your interest in the collectibles or did the thoughtful giver determine it was something you might collect?
When gifting a collectible remember that value is not always determined by price alone.
Have you ever acquired an “instant” collection? What was it?
Was it willed to you or was it simply a matter of “would you like this?”?
Inheriting is the quickest way to acquire a collection. Regardless of
your level of interest you’ll want to know its value.
Ever found something you collected in childhood that is now quite a rare and valuable thing? I could’ve never guessed my talking Rufus the Lion has a value of $300.00. He’s in well-loved condition. Mint in box of this stuffed lion (put out by Montgomery Wards’s in the 70’s) have gone for as much at $1000 on eBay!
