|OK it's not a canary but the closest I had in the photo archive!|
But a key point here is the degree to which collectors continue to collect and at what cost? Should you spend that $10,000 on a very good cupboard? Pull the trigger on that $4,000 folk art painting? Is the time right for that $2,500 top-notch bucket stand? How about shelling out $3,000 for a stellar piece of decorated stoneware? Or, does one keep the money liquid in a cashable GIC – even if it’s earning next to nothing in interest? Some collectors will buy. Some will not. There are lots of good things to collect for less than $1,000 – maybe that’s where everyone has gone to play.
