It may seem like an odd thing to collect but unique or antique sex toys is a very popular collection category. There are many people who enjoy collecting these types of things because they are interesting, controversial, different and a little bit naughty. Sometimes these types of pieces are only available through agents and other collectors, but sometimes items can be found at flea markets, garage sales and antique stores. At flea markets and garage sales, the person selling the item may not even have an idea of what they’re selling.
Another good but potentially unusual place to find interesting sex toys is fetish, BDSM and swingers conventions. There are always vending areas at these events and while the vendors may not be carrying their most valuable antique items with them at a convention, letting each vendor know what types of items would be of interest and providing them with some contact information could yield some future alerts to interesting items that might be coming up for sale. Many of the vendors also have contacts with antiques dealers who specialize in sexual items and sex toys, do they may have contacts that aren’t available to the average collector. If a specific type of item is desired, the vendors may be able to put some feelers out to other collectors, agents and dealers that they know to see if a particular item can be located. In these situations, the buyer must be ready to buy on a moment’s notice because the buyer needs to build up a good reputation with the dealers and certain items may not be available for very long.
The favored customers will always be the ones that are able to make purchases quickly and without problems. These are the customers who will get the first notification when a great item becomes available. A good way to find potentially unique items is to ask around for items that are being discontinued. It’s always cool the have a sex toy that no one else can get.
