There are a few changes to Rosie's this month. Additions were made to the "Inside a Needle Book" page and the "Evolution of Needle Books" page. I am also proud to share my "Space" books in the "Special Exhibits" section. Future special exhibits planned are "The Horseshoe Books" and "The Pop-Up Books". Please check back often because I try to update around the first week of each month.
This time last year, I brought a computer home from school for the summer. My plan was to get on-line and see what was out there. I was still reeling over the demise of my favorite show, "Personal FX", and longed for something to replace it. Somehow I remembered Judith Katz-Schwartz mentioning eBay. Now, one year later, I'm not sure what I would do without it.
Through eBay, I have practically doubled my collection. What is so amazing, is that new needle books continue to crop up. I only win a fraction of the auctions that I bid on, but it is enough to keep me coming back. Just as I used to look forward to watching "Personal FX" every day, now I relish my daily dose of bidding and browsing on eBay. When it was time to take the computer back to school, I had to go buy one.
What I've learned in the last year:
In another year will I still be finding needle books on eBay? Will I still enjoy this means of collecting? We shall see.
