Certainly it’s not necessary for all types of collections, but do you keep any sort of records for those that do?
So you have acquired this amazing collection you love. Don’t be like me and wait until you have 300+ pieces to start…
As you grow the collection you love you may want to create a simple spreadsheet to keep a record of the items you’ve acquired.
Do you use trading to get what you need in your collection? What’s your favorite or preferred method of adding to your collection(s)?
It’s likely the most emotionally intense way to add a piece (especially a missing piece) to your collection but the least impact on your pocketbook or wallet… trading!
No matter the method of acquisition if you get what you love then you’ll always love what you have.
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?
