What started as a collection has turned into a passion. I have been fortunate over the years to see some great old decoys discovered from attics and barns. It has been great being able to identify and purchase decoys from great people. When the economy turned I thought I would rather enjoy my investments on the mantel. You do not get the rate of return or the personal pleasure from a saving bond or a bank statement. Since I enjoy decoys that is where my investments were made. When was the last time you saw someone with a saving bond on the mantel?
