Re: OT: Trends that flopped - name one

Avon "collectables": Several years ago wife and I were acquainted with a couple that put all their nest eggs in the Avon collectables.

He bragged he had $30 to $40K in these collectables and would retire on them! Four or five years later the items that he said were worth $40 - $50 each were in many yard sales for $.50 to $1.00 (still full of the original contents!) I bought a box full of those for $5 with men's cologne - gave most to a buddy that liked the cologne.

We had lost contact with the couple but I am sure he was very depressed. Wife told me a few weeks ago they are becoming collectable again - (I'm not in the market)!
