I don't understand this idea of collecting something in the hope that it will be much more valuable in many years time. I buy things because I like them as they are now. For instance, I won't touch old Hornby Dublo stuff and can't understand why people pay inflated prices for something inferior to what is available now. And why people buy the old tinplate is beyond my understanding. It would serve them right if it went out of fashion and lost value.

Twenty years ago or more, I paid £30 for a painting that was in an exhibition at our local library. This was because I really liked it, and still do, not in the hope that the young artist would one day become famous and it be worth thousands (although I wouldn't mind if that happened).

Buy to enjoy now!
