I have a question. Why does Bzees offer half sizes but when I go to order there are never any 9 1/2 Wide offered? I love my Bzees and order them in a 9W but with socks they are a little snug due to the material on the inside of the shoe. I really need a true flat due to hardware in my ankle from a old broken ankle incident. I would have ordered the TS but the heel height is twice as high as the front of the shoe. Please tell Bzees to make more shoes with no rise in the heel.
I’ve always loved turtles ever since I can remember. We never had much money for entertainment growing up, so we spent a lot of time playing in the woods around our house. I’d always hunt for box turtles and keep them for a day or so until an older sibling or my parents let them go.
I have a lot of turtles now…knick-knacks, pendants, pins, & such….but no real ones.
I think real live turtles should live free, but I do enjoy the occasional visit to my yard and when that happens, I invite them in for a meal.
Might sound petty…
but, I collect refrigerator magnets..LOL
Every state, campus, National park,..on
and on it goes.
Now that I have a stainless steel refrigerator
I don’t display them anymore.(Don’t want any scratches)
I have enough to cover a whole refrigerator
top to bottom.
Everyone knows what souvenir to bring me..:smileylol:
I collect German beer steins. A roommate brought me 2 pewter ones from a trip to Europe more than 50 years ago and that was the beginning of my collection. I have about 70 stein, many of them bought during vacations in Germany and others given to me by friends and family. I even have mineature steins, stein Christmas ornaments, and stein charms (with movable lids). I display most of them above my kitchen cabinets, but some are too talll and I have them on either side of my fireplace. I love looking at the artwork and craftmanship in them, They bring back some very fond memories of travel with my husband.
Good question! I collect Disney princess merchandise and Vera Bradley stuff (but only in a few patterns that are my favorite).
I’ve been collecting princess stuff for maybe two years now. It just takes me back to my childhood, watching all those movies, and makes me feel nostalgic.
As for Vera, I’ve only been collecting a year, but I’ve already built up quite an arsenal. I love that the bags are functional, lightweight and let you express your personality, since there are so many different types of patterns. And I also love anything quilted, so I only buy the quilted Vera merchandise (which most of it is, but they seem to have come out with more non-quilted fabrics and even things like office supplies, which I don’t buy).
It’s just fun to collect things, period. You get an extra little jolt of shopper’s high when you add something to a collection.
American Girl Dolls and books. It started when I would buy for both of my granddaughter’s birthday and holiday gifts.It turned into an obsession when I would buy everything I could get my hands on with their sales.
I have gifted many of the items and of course still have quite the collection. This collection takes up a whole shelf in my closet that could be used for other items.
After this experience I’m trying not to add anything more to this collection.
If anyone is looking for anything let me know I might have it.
I started collecting Wedgwood Jasperware about 16 years ago.
It’s un-glazed pottery, made in England. I’m not really into fancy dishes, but I’ve always liked pottery.
I first saw it on that big online auction site. My collection was getting too large, so I became a seller, selling my “beginner” pieces.
My pics are on my old comp. But here are a few examples:
Wow, that’s a unique thing to collect, ?. 🙂
I lovvvve pens, SnowCollector. And cool funky journals. And satchels in which I can carry my daughters’ 100 hairbands that they lose every day.
That fountain pen store sounds sublime.
I started out trying to collect money but ended up spending it on my other collections.LOL.:womanlol:..
But seriously,I do collect handbags but my biggest passion is beautiful jewelry.I feel like I can take any outfit and make it perfect with the right handbag,rings,earrings,cuff bracelets,necklaces and always my must have,my watch.Many have a special memory to go with them.
My hubby collects pocket watches,knives,our local College items and power tools.
My basset collects bones,of course.:womanwink:..Like someone else said,I tend to collect dust too fast.,:womansurprised::womanlol:
So interesting to read what everyone collects.:womanhappy:
Just to add for reading pleasure towards this topic: My niece collects REALLY, REALLY OLD TELEPHONES. Wow ya’ll….you should see them. She is obsessed with Estate Sales and purchases beautiful Murano glass wear along with telephones. O.k. you should see what is in her front room….a old telephone booth fron London. You know the kind that is red. It reminds me of the Beatles (they took a picture in and around the booth some years back.) She actually has an original telelphone Operator’s chair with the old headphones they used to wear to answer calls. Some phones I have never seen before in my life. They are so unique and make GREAT CONVERSATION! When she goes to these Estate Sales….this woman (my niece) is “SERIOUS!”…..lol

Does anyone remember the Doll collections and sales HSN used to do. I remember it vividly. Used to come on late at night/a.m. Lots of collectors. I remember finding it soothing to listen to the host who did the shows. I think her name was Tina Berry.
I collect the last supper. Framed, painting, or what-not ornament. I have it throughout my house and in my heart.
