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?
The best of all ways to acquire collectibles. You just have a birthday or a it’s a holiday (or both) and someone gives you an item for your collection! Now aren’t you glad you have that Amazon “wishlist” (note: I mention the Facebook page but it has been deleted as of 01-31-21)
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?”?
