What's Your Collection Worth? (And Does It Matter?)

What's Your Collection Worth? (And Does It Matter?)

I've admitted to my many collections over the years — from vintage cameras and vinyl toys to Hot Wheels and oddly enough, dirt and sand. My collections are worth the world — to me. Would they bring in the big bucks if I needed (or wanted) them to down the line? Possibly, but probably not and I'm super ok with that.

Does it matter if your collection is worth money? Of course not. We can collect what we love and not worry about value. That said, if I was hoping to yield a little extra cash from a collection (say I want sell items instead of moving them), then my dirt collection probably won't yield much. There's nothing wrong with that manner of collecting, but we're curious which side of the fence you sit.

Are your collections valuable? Could you re-sell them? Is it your retirement plan? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
