Before you know it you have been collecting for years and even decades, not only have you been collecting but also you have been conserving, recycling and reclaiming as well as re assigning and amassing. Your taste may stay the same or you may go off into different directions but your still a collector, you may one day find yourself overpowered by your collection (more often it is the spouse that is overwhelmed) and sell it all, but before your know it there you go again collecting. Some people start of collecting as a trend, a pastime, or by accident as a tourist .No matter how ,they become collectors because it's "in the blood". Collectors come in all shapes and sizes and budgets; collecting knows no gender, religion or nationality. Collectors are highly sentimental creatures, incredibly curious and they become experts in their own rights. There are the odd collectors who are ashamed of their habits, I say be proud because through your obsessive-compulsive behaviour you have learned a great deal of history, have conserved recycled and reinvented (all noble attributes). Be proud as you're not drunks, smokers or gamblers, yours is a positive and rewarding addiction, you haven't poured money down a drain, you have enjoyed the chase, the possession and you will reap the financial rewards when it is time to sell. I have had various antique interests over the years, recently started to concentrate on putting together a "collection" of something,mainly to fill the empty spaces on the walls of my gamesroom. As I've long been a collector of advertising items,I decided that it was to be Coca Cola of the pre 1960's vintage. Also into Vintage firefighting, guitars, signs, cars, motorbikes,art pottery,art glass,militaria,pretty much anything old and cool!.Thanks for looking! Cheers!! (Read more)
