Past generational hobby? my good sir, Are you trying to imply, that my hobby is inclined to be that of one, that is pursued by an OLD FART?
I don't want to change direction of the topic. I will keep this short. sadly yes I have been around collectors and antiques all my life and in the last 5 to 10 years there is a generation change happening. I know a collector who has a large collection of farm implements and wants to sell off he is stuck either selling pennies on the dollar so he was trying to donate and even that is proving difficult. same goes with collections of stamps, bottles, postcards etc...no body under the age of 30 collects any of this stuff anymore. I enjoy this hobby and care less about the value it's something I love to do but yes i see prices dropping for awhile
