We had a sale of his huge collection of neat old stuff in 2004. Much of his collection was of things he remembered using or being around as a child. So every time he would bring something home my Mom would just shake her head, but he would always have a story to go with his newly found treasure.

So my words of advice to any collector is to treasure not only the item but the personal story or history behind each item also. (Read more)
