Do you want to supplement your art collection a bit more? Or you are just getting into becoming a professional art collector? Then, start with something small but influential. We now present you 7 best art investments under $1,000.
Since the art is a very wide term, which allows any self-called creator to announce even their lunch plate an art, it is very hard to find the item that will have a value in 50 years or even more. While writing this, I am having my hot coffee in a mug that has owl print with hearts all over it that I paid about $2. Of course, if a manufacturer wanted, he could easily say something abstract about this item and try to sell it for more than $500 per piece. Of course, I do not consider myself crazy enough to give that much money for a piece of ceramics that I would not be using anytime in my life, because, who am I, a Rockefeller? I prefer my mugs in a box of 6, with minimal price and my dinner service in a collection of 12 pieces, all the same, qualified enough to have my hot dish without melting or breaking, and, again, the minimum wage, so I won’t feel sorry after the first two plates break.
But when Insider Monkey’s team made a collection of 7 best art investments under $1,000, one of the items that found itself a place on the list were nothing else but collectible plates. Just have to quote them ‘’ As long as you keep any paperwork and history on the items you purchase, they make great investments.’’ Ok, I understand that they collected all the information from BizMove, Fin24, and Bloomberg, but will someone explain to me what is the deal with plates and why would someone run into the auctions to buy some of them? On the other hand, who am I to judge when the third of my salary is going on energy drinks?
On the other hand, there is a collection that I can’t argue with in a million years and that is the vinyl! Unfortunately for many vinyl owners, most of them aren’t even aware of the value of the ones that are collecting the dust on their attics and sell them for far less than a cost of my coffee mug. But if you find the first ever edition of some famous group, save yourself from the collectors and try not to sell it for every price. You never know how much money someone will give you for it. On the other hand, if you are the vinyl collector yourself, keep an eye on it, because you never know who is at your door.
