It is interesting to notice what buyers are willing to spend on their nearest/dearest. We often get the request that a Christmas present is needed for mum or an aunt who collects sewing tools. Thinking, indeed hoping the offspring will want to buy something that has the quality to please a collector, we are often surprised and dissapointed at the item chosen. ‘This one looks a bit different’ is the accompanying phrase as a fairly modern item is found at the back of a shelf where we hoped it might get lost. Mum will have to put it at the back of her shelf and probably blame us for a poor choice. Best not to buy for a collector unless you ask the collector for some guidance first.
