The first red flag is a booth in which objects are not priced. I have no desire to be “sized up” based on what a dealer thinks is my potential to pay. A marked or listed price is the dealer’s offer to sell. I have no respect for dealers who hide behind a “verbal” price. If the price is not on a sticker or tag, I walk away.

Decorated evergreen trees are a beloved symbol of the Christian holiday of Christmas. However, history tells us that conifer trees were worshipped by various societies long before Christians caught on to the idea.

In November 1987, I began buying toys and putting them away in a closet. My plan is simple: repeat the buying process for thirty years. It was not as daunting a task in 1987. It is twenty-two years later. In the thirty-first year, I will take the first year’s toys out of the closet and compare their initial cost with their current value in the collectibles market, repeating the process for twenty-nine years until the project concludes in 2046, at which point, assuming I am alive, I will be one hundred and five years old.

The first question I ask when considering a purchase is do I want it—do I really, really want it. My tastes are eclectic. I love it everything, so technically all I see is fair game. Need is not a consideration. Collecting is not about need. It is about want.
A new purchase has to supplement one of my collections—strengthen an existing collection or build a new one. The older I get, the more selective I am. There are so many things and so little money. Further, I no longer have five and ten dollar tastes.
