I purchased the 2006 Garage Sale & Flea Market Annual and soon after had to purchase the updated version (the 2007 edition). What really makes this a great book for the collector and those who buy to resell is that it covers a wide range of collectibles. If you are a fan of costume jewelry there is a section in here just for you. If you are a fan of Lefton, there is a section in the book just for you. Do you collect Precious Moments, Dept. 56, Cherished Teddies, Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments? These are all covered as well. A fan of Coca-Cola collectibles? Then your covered as well. Another great section of these books that I enjoy is reading the author/editor's rummage sale finds from the previous season. I have come to enjoy these stories immensely. You also learn from the author/editior to trust your instincts when you are out rummage saling, flea marketing, estate saling (I learned this lesson the hard way as well when I found a set of Homer Laughlin china at a rummage sale for only $10 and I passed it up as it was marked Eggshell Nautilous and I wasn't familiar with this term). If you are one who is interested in making some extra cash for your own collections, then the Garage Sale Flea Market Annual is a must have to read, and to read again.
