A number of items with a common theme or focus is considered a collection. Collectors collect items with this in mind. Periodically we acquire items as a collection or assemble a number of items to form a collection. This page offers collectors the opportunity to purchase a collection. It is our hope to inspire the new collector to begin their collection and encourage the development and expansion of current collections.
