collecting girl scout items
i began collecting girl scout merit badges (mostly) since 1998. the collection has grown to other items: catalogs, jewelry, stationery, photos...
i have not purchased anything for the collection in a long time, though. i think partly was the cost, there are items that go for hundreds of dollars. i cannot afford to invest that much. ebay is the best place to obtain girl scout items, old & new.
i have often wanted to go to a trade-o-ree to see what other collectors have. trade-o-rees are for collectors of boy scout items & sometimes there are girl scout items amongst them.
sometimes i wonder if i am finished collecting girl scout items. there are more items to collect, but not at the prices they go for.
when does one stop collecting whatever it is they collect?
