The “Hot” New Collectibles

Written by Laura Thykeson - Owner of "Ice Originals II - Vintage Collectibles, Music and Jewelry"

A few months ago I wrote an article named “Signed vs. Unsigned - Buying Art, Pottery and Collectibles”. The basic premise ofrepparttar article was my own opinion about “Should you payrepparttar 136416 price for signed jewelry, art and collectibles, as opposed to buying what you love, whether signed or unsigned?”. Since writing that article, I have read in one of my many collectible newsletters and magazines thatrepparttar 136417 “hot” new collectible trend is buying unsigned and unknown artist and artisan items. I personally think this is great! Not only does it helprepparttar 136418 collectibles market, in several different areas such as unsigned jewelry, studio art pottery and original artworks, who is to say what that “unknown artist” or unsigned item will someday be worth? Picasso received hardly any recognition while alive, but after his death, we all know whererepparttar 136419 prices went on his works, straight throughrepparttar 136420 roof! If you are a collector, this isrepparttar 136421 perfect time to start turning your buying trends towards unsigned items, or as yet, unknown makers. The prices are much lower thanrepparttar 136422 normal collectible names, as well asrepparttar 136423 fact that no matter what market you are buying in - BUY WHAT YOU LOVE! This way, you don’t end up spending a fortune on an item that in five years may not even be considered a good collectible investment. Rememberrepparttar 136424 “Beanie Baby”© craze? Well, now there are tons of folks out there with mountains of “beanies” that they may have paid a small fortune for, and I sure hope they love them because that market is pretty much dead! The difference between paying $150.00 for a Beanie Baby© duringrepparttar 136425 insanity ofrepparttar 136426 craze feels much worse whenrepparttar 136427 bottom drops out ofrepparttar 136428 market, than spending $150.00 for a couple of beautiful art pottery bowls or vases, especially if you loverepparttar 136429 look ofrepparttar 136430 items anyway. When you look atrepparttar 136431 items that you purchased, ones that could possibly become not only valuable collectibles based onrepparttar 136432 development ofrepparttar 136433 artist during their creating lifetime or atrepparttar 136434 very least, loved heirlooms that are passed on in a family, this all begins to make a lot of sense. If you buy what appeals to you, you can never go wrong. It is my philosophy to by what is aesthetically and artistically appealing to me, is unique, and I could care less whetherrepparttar 136435 artist or maker is “known and listed” or not! Five years from now, I will not be crying over my purchase andrepparttar 136436 money I spent, I will still be lovingrepparttar 136437 item as much when I purchased it, if not more! If it goes up in value, so muchrepparttar 136438 better. That is just a wonderful side fact that doesn’t even enter my mind atrepparttar 136439 time of purchase. I buy because I like what I see, hear, feel, etc. Perhaps this is why so many are turning torepparttar 136440 unsigned and unmarked items, without quite as much emphasis onrepparttar 136441 signatures or hallmarks. Sure it’s nice to own a full parure of Miriam Haskell jewelry. But, I am more content with an unsigned, unique sterling pin for a fraction ofrepparttar 136442 price, that I can actually wear and show off for a fraction ofrepparttar 136443 price I would have paid forrepparttar 136444 Haskell name.
