Last month, a starting collector asked me if I had any collector’s tips I could share. I had never considered this before, but I realized there are so many do’s and don’ts, so I figured I’d write an article on it and share it with everyone.
With the holidays in sight, all of you long-time collectors are surely evaluating your purchases done in 2011 and making want lists and resolutions for 2012. Maybe this year you bought things you weren’t exactly looking for, and then later you didn’t have the money when something interesting came up? And for next year, you want to do better?
All these tips are assuming we are 100% rational people, which of course we are not, otherwise we wouldn’t be collectors in the first place.
