Rosebud Collectible Books and Music

Evansville, Indiana, United States

“Rosebud” is the first word spoken in Orson Welles’s film, Citizen Kane, and the movie closes with an image of a rosebud on a child’s sled. In between, the entire film is interviews with characters who knew Kane by a reporter trying to find what “rosebud” meant and why Kane would utter that word on his deathbed. “Rosebud,” in the movie, becomes a term synonymous with something greatly desired.
I want to help you find your “ROSEBUD!”
My aim is to offer items that are as worthy of the quest as “rosebud” was in the greatest film or all time.
By collectible, I mean “rare,” “desirable,” and in “excellent condition.” “Carefully selected” would be another apt descriptor for the types of items I try to stock.
