I have been a collector of Mill Creek Sculptures for a few years now. I never intended to buy any pieces as an investment. I purchased them because I like them. Mill Creek is a small company that has only been around for less than twenty years if I am not mistaken. I believe the more people get familiar with them I believe the price will increase on the earlier pieces. I have only sold three pieces out of my collection and yes I sold them for more than what I paid for them. To be exact, double what I paid for them. Thats my two sense!
