Deciding Which Projects To Take On II

  • A couple of months ago I did a show entitled, "Deciding Which Projects to Take On." The idea is that it is sometimes difficult to determine in advance whether to take the time and make the effort to take on the sale of an entire collection, especially when the category is not one you specialize in. I was confronted with the dilema of deciding whether to invest hours, weeks, months? in buying then selling a collection of aerospace materials originating with the Glenn L. Martin Company in the early '60's (they developed the Titan missles), and/or buying then selling a collection of antique masks and other primarily Asian vintage and antique items. In the end I turned down the aerospace items, but took on the Asian items. In this follow up show I'll show you what pieces I acquired and how I've priced them.
