I know, I know, it's a comic book blog, why should I read an excellently written article in collectorsweekly about a woman makeup mogul? Fine, skip the article.
But if you are a collector then try this exercise: there is a picture of a makeup compact shaped like a frog in the article. Very cute. But if you knew the story behind it...you'd buy it. Happens all the time. Collector's rarely just buy the comic/dish/toy. In their mind they are buying the story. Here is an excellent article about a fascinating woman and after reading her story, if you are a collector and you came across something that was from her company in the 20s...you might just buy it.
