Although Easter Collecting might not be as popular as other holiday collecting, that just means there isn't the same competition for the good stuff. Find your particular niche, the stuff that really appeals to you. Then decide on your budget. Can you afford the antique items or should you look for vintage and contemporary pieces. In either case, look for well-made collectibles in good condition.

Budget vs No Budget Easter Collecting
Easter rabbit collecting can cover all the same categories as the other holidays. Ornaments, cards, toys, tableware, as well rabbit items, eggs and baskets. There are loads of choices, in all price ranges. On a budget? Concentrate on vintage and new items. If you are not on a budget, lucky you! Look for antique Easter toys, beautiful glass baskets, antique rabbits and limited edition contemporary objects.

The history is fascinating, the eggs are exquisite and to collect even the reproductions is only for the those with deep pockets. But there is something about a Fabergé egg that even if you can't own one, you can still enjoy looking at the pictures.
