aboutus

From curator to creator...

What drives someone who collected for years to turn their hand to selling and creating? Good question!

My obsession with collecting stemmed initially from records to videogames to all those toys I used to circle in the Argos catalogue but never received!

 

 The change from collecting to selling was gradual, thinning out the gaming collection because I felt awful not playing them. I had this wonderful collection gathering dust - games were made to be played! Then, while watching an episode of American Pickers there was a line that really rang true for me "we're just custodians of junk" - they're right. I can't hold on to it forever and I'd rather it made it to a person who would genuinely appreciate it than leave on my shelf until my family have to get rid of it!
