Hi Gang

Im just being nosey and finding out what everybody collects, e.g old comics.

Well I collect Crystal animals and birds, got my two big tall corner display units full of them, and several boxes filled as well.

Admit cant really afford Swarovski crystal, but have some. My largest piece is a Golden Eagle my pride and joy.

It doesnt matter how daft it seems let me know,

Regards
Mags

    Hi Mags

    I collect russian dolls (those dolls inside dolls inside dolls etc), I have lots and lots. Mostly I have to collect them from charity shops but I'm glad they're making a comeback - I got some xmas ones from Next last year.

    I also collect anything from the Me to You tatty teddy collection. I love those little bears.

    My girls collect those ornamental dolls (again, mostly from charity shops). They love and cherish them but I have to say (and I'm sorry if anyone disagrees) I find them spooky with their staring eyes!

    Nxx

    PS - we also seem to be incapable of walking past any charity shops in case we can add to our collections. I have to say I have a soft spot for old teddy bears in general!

    That is a good one Coco :lol:
    Think we are all the same coco :grin::grin:

    But charity shops have a lot to answer for, especialy my collections of crystal animals.

    I have a few old Victorian china dolls and a lovely quality reproduction.I used to love all the Victorian fashions and was lucky my Sister was such a brilliant fashion designer and she made me some beautiful Victorian style clothes for my dolls, which I still have. I had a Sasha doll as a child and they increased in value so added a few more over the years.
    I also collected paper dolls as a child, they used to sell beautiful ones when I was younger but the quality changed for the worse over the years. I have very few left now but do own a Shirley Temple book with nothing cut out.

    I then started collecting vinyl records because I loved music.I have years of Gymnastics mags but last month they started putting it all online and it is not the same.

    Gosh Tony

    I could do you a T-shirt for you with your boggies and scabs on it.

    Used to do my own kids t-shirts when they were young.

    Mind you what you collect says a lot about the person concerned!!!!!!!!

    I had a friend who collected trainers. He had a room full of them, puma, Adidas etc in all colours. And they say girls love their shoes.

    Oh thanks Maggie, but putting bogies on it :shock: :eek: Thats just sick, lol.... :wink:

    Rob, that would indeed be a reasonable swap rkid, been looking for a pele shaped one for years.. And seeing as you are throwing the cheesey extras in I will also add a deal sweetener for you... How about one shaped like the drummer ginger baker? And it's got an authentic ginger hue to it as well, not doctored with food colouring in the slightest, honest gov... :???: :eek: :???: :lol:
