There's a knack to collecting the right thing at the right time. Small fortunes may be made from pursuing exactly what interests you: the matchbox cars or the Beanie Babies you once played with, the bright plastic jewelry your mother used to wear, funny salt and pepper shakers, space-age souvenirs, or even old cell phones. Our expert authors offer fledgling collectors hundreds of ideas about what to collect. They share priceless tips about where to start and what to look for at lawn sales, flea markets, secondhand shops, live auctions and web sites full of used stuff for sale. What a collector in these hard times needs most is good information and inspired guides. On the pages of this book, Michael Hogben and Linda Abrams point the way to overlooked and undervalued objects and to the trash of today that could turn into the treasures of tomorrow.
