Collectible gifts and other items from Charleston South Carolina. Generally speaking, a collectible is any physical asset that appreciates in value over a period of time because it is either rare or it is desired by collectors to add to a collection or complete a collection. When people think of collectibles they usually associate the word with things like coca cola, marlboro, post cards, old newspapers or books, but there really are no strict rules as to what is or is not a collectible.
Many browse through online flea markets, swap meets, newspaper ads or even go to garage sales looking for collectible items to expand their collections. Collectibles also make great gifts for family members or friends that collect a certain type of item such as pepsi products, coca cola items or even glassware. During the holidays many of the large companies today will produce collectible items with a limited quantity for the purpose of gift giving.
Collectibles don't always appreciate in value because there are many factors involved in the actual value of items. Some collections could increase in value one year and fall in value the next year. Much of this depends upon the market and how rare an item may be. The value of collectible items could be influenced by the media and popular tv shows. Although an item may reduce in value for several years does not mean the value will not increase years later.
A great example of this would be playstation 1 games. Obviously these games are not produced any longer from the game companies but due to the high demand in the gaming industry the playstation 1 games have become more and more popular and their value has increased. While 15 years ago you could buy a playstation 1 game for a few dollars, today those same games which are considered collectible now would cost you 3 times as much.
