That’s how my collecting habit grew. Over the many years as a Guide for About.com I would write about new collectibles. Soon I would need one. Absolutely have to have it. As one friend mentioned, if Barb writes about it, no doubt she’ll soon be collecting it. True.
Of course I didn’t start collecting everything I wrote about, but it was tempting at times!
Going to flea markets and antique stores is another problem. Since I’ve been in the collecting world for so many years, there was always something different I wasn’t aware of or had never seen before. Now, I didn’t always bring it home. But I did a lot of time.
All this is just a way of saying I have quite a few small collections, a few fairly large collections and a great appreciation for vintage and antique smalls.
