I want to share October's madness with you...
I've focussed on collecting Smiths items for the last few years. I've got copies of most Morrissey releases but never gone to town in completing the collection. Given that there are so few Smiths items for me to collect, I decided to put together a Morrissey wanted list... and then started buying... and buying... and buying. Far more than is on the wanted list. And there are loads left on the list.
And then stuff started arriving... and arriving... and arriving. Until, by the end of the month I feel incredibly... Guilty? Greedy? Empty? Happy? Decadent? The thrill of opening the packaging is short lived, I'm live an addict looking for a new fix. Unsure that I want to be this kind of collector...
For the very first time, I've put it all together, listed it and photographed it... if only as a cautionary tale (to myself) to not do it again. It stick to the wanted list. To stick to a budget. Only bid on / buy things that I want, rather than every thing that catches my eye.
