Collectibles out there waiting for you


Some people believe in fate when it comes to collectibles. 

As if these objects are out there, somewhere, waiting for you to find them.  And you were always meant to have them.  These same people who would scoff at the notion of soul mates in relationships believe that there is a Star Cowboy rag doll out there, in pristine condition (despite it’s popularity), that has somehow evaded the grasp of other treasure hunters to wait for its one true owner.  It sure is easy to believe in that dream.

Every collector has got a story like that: “I’d given up looking for it.” “It was in the wrong box and I almost threw it out.” “It had been monogrammed with a mis-spelled version of the original owner’s name – which was exactly how I spell my name!

Okay, maybe that last one really is destiny.

But for us, sometimes finding a rare collectible – say a signed front row ticket for Rex Ensemble’s infamous cancelled show at the June Bug – feels more like two ships that pass in the night.  The history of an object, all the people who owned and treasured that object before, help make it so interesting in the first place.  And all that history makes you feel like you don’t really own it; it’s not really yours.  You’re just adding a little more to the story, and some day someone else will be overjoyed to add it to their collection.

So what is it that’s out there waiting for you?
