Comment Re:Excellent time to sell (Score 2, Interesting) 267

Once, I was at a sci-fi collectables fair. One of the most popular stands was selling Beanie babies. My 1 year old daughter, whom I was carrying, started stretching out for one of the beanie babies (a small pig I think). I picked it up and asked how much. The vendor told me £30 or there abouts. Watched by the many other collectors who were all sifting through the stand, I bought the beanie baby pig, tore off the tag, and handed it to my daughter.

The silence around me was deafening... I quickly retreated to the Star Trek area, where at least they can take a joke.

-Jar.

PS. She's 12 now, and still has the beanie baby pig, without tag, and without most of it's fur.
PPS. I bought an original lobby poster of Star Trek V at that same fair, signed by Shatner. It's one of my most valuable collectables.
