People collect the strangest things. Who would have thought those silly Beanie Babies
would be worth a small fortune?
Why not start collecting as a hobby? I would suggest collecting failed eBusiness items. Items such as CD-ROMs from Compuserve's failed WOW! service to a grocery card from Priceline.com's failed online food shopping venture are readily available. Some collectible gold may be in your trash as you read this! Wall Street analysts predict that the big eBusiness boom will go bust when they all start running out of capital in the next 6 months.
If you start now, you can be in on the ground floor of the next collecting craze. Who knows, maybe you'll be selling stuff on EBay to pay for your new 1.5GHz computer by next May.
