Hey.. I'm writing this MA thesis on Collecting Branded Memorabilia, and Apple seems like a good place to start! I was wondering if you would have a few minutes to spare, and tell me a little about your collection and collecting process. I'd really like to know: - Is there a particular type of memorabilia (tshirts, pens, etc.) that you collect? - Why do you think you collect at all? - How long have you been collecting? - How did it start? Which one was your first piece? - Which is your favourite peice? Why? - Are you very 'private' about your collection, or do you love showing it to those who'd like to see it? - Are you competitive about the collection? Do you compete with other collectors in any way? What way? - Are you a member of a Collectors' Club or Society? Does this forum that you are part of help your personal collecting in any way? Do you think the setting up of a social collectors' platform helps and encourages the collecting process for eveyone involved? - Would you ever sell your personal collection? - Why did you choose Apple in particular to collect? Why Apple? - Do you regularly use Apple products in your daily life? Do you consider yourself as particularly loyal to the brand? - Would you mind revealing your age and nationality? - Is there anything else that's exciting enough to be shared? Of course, a personal conversation is often a much better idea when it comes to subjects like these, but unfortunately, I know that that's not really an option. That said, I really do hope you are able to find a few minutes to help me out here. I do know that looks like a lot of questions, but you may answer only as many as you like! Thanks a ton!!!!
