Golden Rules For Collectors
You do not have to be a squirrel to be a collector, but it would probably help. Every collector is an individual and thus each collection is unique. Because of this is therefore not possible to give a definitive set of rules for collecting but at Rarity4u we have produced a general guideline to assist all collectors of all ages.
So You Want To Be A Collector
Squirrels collect and store during the summer when food is plentiful, to help them through the long winter when food is more difficult to find. Similarly with collectors, they look for pieces in times of plenty, so they can admire and enjoy their collection during the difficult times when time, money, space and suitable pieces are hard to find.

British Food Myths
It is often said that the British cuisine is the worst in Europe if not the world. This reputation is due to the supposed poor food, lack of imagination, stodgy puddings, and weak tea. Wartime rationing and lack of supplies certainly played a significant role in developing this reputation but like most things, change has taken place over the ensuing years but the reputation once gained, is not so easy to change.

All will be explained so be ready to see some interesting facts.
