My first blog post!
My name is Doug, and I’m a collector. I was raised in a family of collectors, with extremely varied interests. I’m hoping my experience in building collections, creating displays, and crafting narratives allow me to share a unique perspective on the collecting world.
My goals are simple . . . I want to discuss material up for auction, the “how” and “why” of collecting, and talk to other collectors. I want to learn about new areas of collecting. My knowledge is varied, with experience in books, sports, pop-culture, and natural history. But there’s more out there, from the mainstream collectables to the odd-ball material.
As this blog begins, so does my journey. Let’s see what catches my eye. I hope you’ll join me.
