    Flog It Trade Secrets

    Nature is a great inspiration for collecting.  If animals are not your thing, look to the plant world.  If you’re wondering whether a red will work with a green, look at an apple!


    Owls seem to be one species of bird with particular appeal to collectors.  This may be because they are thought to bring wisdom.  Whatever form you see one in, you should snap it up.
