A comment a customer made in the shop this week has inspired this post. I had two head vases from a recent auction, and I price to sell in my shop not to gather dust. Anyway, she asked the price on the one since I had not gotten them tagged, and when I gave her the price, she responded, "Why is it so cheap?" Here is the key question in the resale world...what is it worth? So, I will let you in my head for some business commentary.
And here is a little information on the head vase that prompted my commentary.
What gave me a chuckle as I researched the topic was that there was a convention of head vase collectors in July in Minnesota, and it was combined with the Jim Beam Bottle Club Convention. I know there are some great lines for that combo, but I will be good! Anyway, if you are interested, the Japanese makers are Napco, Inarco, Lefton, Enesco, Relpo and Reubens, and American ones that are sought after all the Nichols ones or Howard Holt.
So, here's looking at you... and remember~buy what you love not because it is worth, or may be worth, money someday!
