It’s an unpalatable thought for some but what you have to realise is that, let’s say £1000 has a different value for different people. For some, that’s a months income. For others, that’s a days fee. It’s all relative to your own personal income. I think most people have a % of their income they are willing to spend on the things that make them happy. The same people spending £50k on a Star Wars collectible may be spending the same money on a watch, or a piece of art. That may be the same to them as me spending a couple of thousand a year on the hobby.
I think you would be extremely surprised by what some people spend on collectibles. A person dropping £50k on something who may have millions in he bank would be perceived as a big spender, although the amount is a small part of their personal wealth vs the guy clearing £1500 a month but spending £750 on Mocs and only just making ends meet. Who’s the big spender? Who’s the one being irresponsible.
