That's genius; thank you!

Ordered the Tabula Mundi standard and Book M package. I sold a couple of decks so felt emboldened. The shipping costs to the UK... OMG!!!... I'm on baked beans for a month now. I was supposed to be funding vintage purchases. At least I'm refining my collection and am in the process of making sure I only have decks I actually like.

I think because you sold a couple, you are justified.

I was directed to this thread after I made an introductory post in the new members bit. I ordered another new deck yesterday and there is another one I desperately think I want to order from the book depository after watching un-boxing videos, the artwork is just too cute.
I got around to joining the library today ( only took me 20 years to get my butt there) and have borrowed a couple of old books on tarot to read in the hopes it will keep me off spending so much time on the Internet looking at deck artwork. We will see.......

Nice to meet you, vie. I think you have a good idea joining the library. I haven't been to a library in over two decades.

Theoretically.... I suppose... But I bought it then and there in a locally owned shop, so not so much.

And then I bought the fountain BOGO because why not, and if I was buying decks I might as well place that Japanese amazon order I've been thinking about, and oh look that oracle deck I've been eyeing is almost sold out... and you know what you need? Starchild, and hey it's Canadian so not as expensive as you thought, and I have a problem, someone please stop me....

My solution is to only buy decks after I've done a paid reading or two. Since I don't make enough in a year for the shopkeeper to have to give me an income tax filing form, it's a self-limiting proposition. Of course, that would still be around a dozen $30 decks a year and 18-20 in the $20 range. To be honest, though, I do take my wife to dinner with some of that money, so I probably buy one deck every couple of months.

I have a similar deal with myself - I'm allowed to buy a deck only after I filled my quota on paid readings... but we'd need that money for other things, too.

After Nina put up the super-beautiful and exactly-my-cup-of-stargazer-tea Arcana of Astrology, I broke down. In the end, she didn't want to sell so I headed headlessly over to the shop and bought it directly from the artist.

What a beauty.

So I broke down. Now actually I started thinking again about my desired stargazing sub-collection: Celestial, Quantum, Constellations, Cosmos, Ptolemaic Constellations oracle, nice Astronomical Playing Cards they sell in the UK... oh yeah...

Wrestling with my demons here, DOWN you demons!!! DOWN!!! ARGH....
