A true master will never let his talent fade away

Find old books in the attic and sell them, or buy them at random and then sell them. It sounds like a market, but still as an option :))

Antiquarian book

The cost of antique books starts from about 5000, the average price is about 50,000, so for example, “Bulletin of fine arts” — 45000r, and of course rare books, the price of which can reach millions of rubles, for example, the book of the first printer Ivan Fedorov, which remains a unit, so “Moscow Apostle” will cost about 3 million rubles.

Many antique valuables such as coins, stamps, badges have catalogs that used to be quite problematic to find, but now the benefit is the Internet 🙂 the catalog shows prices for products that directly depend on the condition of the product, so I have an old coin on my hands, you can roughly say how much it will cost.

What can’t be said about paintings or antique books. In this regard, books are very similar to paintings. if you have an old antique book and you want to sell it or buy it, you need to first evaluate the market.
What kind of book is it, whether it was printed in a printing house, how many copies, etc.it may well Be that You just have a reprint of an old book, and it is unlikely that anyone will want to pay a tidy sum for it.

Prices for books, as well as for paintings, depend on many factors: subject matter, time, and demand. So in the Soviet years, lifetime editions of Lenin cost a lot of money, now the price of these books has fallen sharply. It all depends on the market, but if you buy a really valuable thing, such as a very rare copy of a book, or manuscripts of famous writers or poets (only handwriting expertise must be carried out), then the cost of them in 90 percent of cases will only grow over time.

If you still haven’t found a book, then go ahead to needlework…

Needlework – a thing quite difficult and requires a lot of perseverance, patience, and most importantly-a lot of experience. It’s a shame when a toy made with such great difficulty is suddenly sold at a meager price that does not correspond to the work invested in it.

And then You start sewing at the table, or do not sew at all, and either sew wonderful things only to your family and closest friends and give them your work for free, so to speak, for the love of your loved ones.

Nevertheless, you do not stop loving your work for a moment, being attached to it with your heart and soul. At the same time, your skills and experience continue to grow, and You grow in your own eyes.

Some people still have to change their minds due to life circumstances and sell their unique products at prices that are not adequate for the invested labor. there is nothing to be done, life dictates its own rules of the game. We cannot live Andersen’s fairy tales in real life because the end will be very sad.

Skills and talent — they are not always only related to hereditary factors, and often you need to work very hard in order not to lose your ancestral skill and talent to create something extraordinary, as Mozart composed his heavenly symphonies for all time.

The master gradually adapts to the difficult reality surrounding him, freeing up space and time for further development of his talent, creative inspiration, obtaining additional experience, in between implementing his simple standard products made only for sale in order to support his life and the life of his family.

A real master overcomes everything and customers are drawn to him from all sides, and the circle of his admirers only increases and increases.

A true master over the years becomes more and more immersed in his work, turning his entire life to the smallest detail devoted only to his work, he already lives only thanks to it. His heart burns like the heart of Prometheus from the desire to give people the fruits of their labor.

It makes no sense to divide the day into day and night, working time and rest. And a person does not feel the flow of time itself, because he always has no time to distract non-essential details for him.
