While researching my book, I dropped in to see Bob Hellewell of Bob and Coby's Toys and Collectables in Sardis. Durng our rambling conversation, I asked Bob what the next hot collectable would be. Unhesitatingly he said" " It’s a crossover. Lego Star Wars, star wars is always hot, lego is a classic. They’re always appreciating”.
If you are unsure of what to collect, why not try a cross-collectable or crossover collectable. For instance, one item I collect is Santa Coca-Cola playing cards. I'll never get rich from it, but I collect what brings back feelings of nostalgia. What brings back better memories than Santa Claus or drinking coke on a hot summers day. Toys are always hot, you could collect cap guns and bb guns. They are collected by gun aficionados, toy collectors, as well as western memorabilia collectors, and they can be bought for under $20. Hang hem on a wall, strap them over a chair. It's a great look!
