Investment

While it would certainly be true to say some makers' work can be a very sound investment, my advice would be to buy/collect what you like!

If you, at a later date, then decide to sell and make a profit then you have been in a 'win-win' situation. However, like all investments, the future value of a particular makers' work can vary depending on demand (or not!).
