If you are a film buff, then you may like to collect things from movies. Or, if you are a huge fan of just one movie, then you may really like to collect things about that particular movie. There are a lot of reasons why you may like to collect things from movies, and you will be able to learn more about collecting movie props in this article. 

What are movie props?

A movie prop is anything that was used during the production of a movie. It may be a lamp that sat in the corner of a room during the filming of a scene in that room. Or, it may be a sword that was used during a fighting scene of a movie. A prop can also be something that was worn by an actor during filming, such as a hat, a bracelet, or a jacket. A prop can also be something the actor closely interacted with in the movie, such as the diary they wrote in or the computer they used in the movie. 

What props are sold?

Not all of the props used during the filming of a movie will end up being put up for sale. Many of the props will be stored in a huge storage unit so they might be used for other filming projects at some point in the future. However, it's common to see a lot of props sold from blockbuster films. Examples of props that many people want to get their hands on are things like the suits superhero characters wore or things like jewelry that big stars wore in specific films. Sometimes odd items can be purchased that were props, such as a smashed foam cell phone. 

Why do people buy movie props?

Some people like to buy movie props so they can hold on to them, find the right buyer, and sell them for a profit. Another reason some people buy movie props is to they want to display those props in their homes. Some people are really into certain movies, and they try to recreate scenes from their favorite movies in their homes. They will try to purchase furniture props and other items they can use to achieve the desired look. Collectors like to collect movie props to store safely in an area where they can enjoy looking at or even holding items used in actual movies.
