Well I finally sat down and figured out the prices for my collection. For me it was a rather scary number, scary because I still think it was a short time. How in the world did I manage to do that? Scary because I’ve never really spent that much on any hobby before… And scary because I’m now trying to seriously figure out how to go about this thing. LOL… One good thing I’ve noticed is much of what I’ve spent has gone to my “A” series, aka the series I am always looking for, will probably not easily sell (if at all). Provided they are the pricier series, still I think over two-thirds going there is a good sign. What I dislike about my main series though is that it’s harder to find cels for them and usually when they do come up, they are pricey for me. And I’m one of those people who like to have their fix in a more consistent basis (if that makes any sense). I go a tad insane when I don’t get to update……. *sigh* But I want to up my spending ratio in the A series which means less spending on other series. Not that I don’t love them but when I really think about it, an A series for me are those that I wouldn’t let go of easily.
Which brings to mind… that I had recently had my first cel sale. It went good but I found that letting go of cels in my gallery was quite a challenge. LOL. I do thank those who bought from me though. Thank you! And to one person I apologize for not hiding a certain series. Sorry for getting your hopes up. I apologize… Anyway I realized that I do not really like to cut into my collection… For the most part I want to keep it intact. That’s mainly the reason I closed the sale after half a day of placing an ad for it at Beta, RS and Animanga. I guess it is true what they say, you get fond of these things… Once it’s displayed in my gallery… Well I guess that makes one a collector yes? One is always looking to increase one’s collection… Not cut into it. Although I did it to help alleviate a cel purchase for an A series, I found out it wasn’t really the point. So back to saving to afford my other cel wants instead of using my current cels to get another (although much more) wanted cel. So… I guess I should add that this is not a for sale blog post. It is not at all. Just telling you my newfound scary adventures in this hobby.
Anyway... I hope to update soon. I'm waiting for a few things to come in. BTW does anyone like the new look? It took a while to change and of course the banner is made by my free banner maker safetygirl. Hehehe.
