Thankfully, you don't have to own a circus or, heaven forbid, run away and join a circus to enjoy big top collectibles. Although some vintage circus memorabilia can be a bit pricey for the beginning collector, there are still many circus related items that will fit into tight budgets. Photos and old books as well as newer circus items, for example, can be easily found and collected for a modest investment. Like any other collecting genre, the trick to finding great stuff is to get to know as many people as possible in the circus memorabilia collector's market. Make solid connections and you will encounter great opportunities to get a hold of premium items! Also, attend circuses when you can find one. Yes, they are still out there - just not like they used to be. In attending circuses you will undoubtedly have fun and find opportunities to meet people who can help with your search for new and interesting items. Good hunting to ya!
