Home / Albums / Various Collectables / Matchboxes and Matchbooks 129

I've always had a sneaking admiration for those who can collect just one thing without deviating, or can buy things without getting emotionally attached to them, and sell them again with the single-minded intention of making a profit. I only buy things that I like and that means it is difficult to part with them, and profit has never been my motivation. Luckily many things I buy are at good prices so there is profit to be made, but Selling is the problem. My nature is to be eclectic and so I end up with all sorts of things, and that includes these matchboxes which I bought on a spur of the moment decision whilst buying another collection from a Gumtree seller. I'm sure that a psychologist could write a book about me and my ways, I'd certainly buy a copy to add to my collection.
