About Cool & Collected

Cool and Collected is a web site devoted to us crazy few who go to great lengths to acquire items for our collection. We camp outside toy stores, we troll eBay obsessively, and we may even stalk former cast members of Star Trek. Some might call us obsessive, but it’s in our blood and we just can’t help it. Whether you collect Star Wars or Hopalong Cassidy, Batman or Godzilla, I’ll try and show you some things to get the adrenaline going.

A little about me

By day, I’m a graphic designer, by night I’m an eBay browsing, pop culture devouring, father of two and husband of one. I have always been a collector.¬†Currently, my focus is on books, pulps, box cameras, pop culture items from the 70’s and 80’s, vintage space-themed items, old western movie posters, and anything I happen to find that I think is cool.

For me, there is nothing more exciting than the thrill of the hunt. I can spend hours sifting through boxes at yard sales or antique shops, because I know at the bottom of the next bin is something incredibly cool.

What do you collect?

Collectors love to show their treasures to other collectors. If you have a cool collection (please, no Barbies or My Little Ponies), drop me a note and I’ll help you share it with the world and connect you with other collectors.
