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.
- Cookie Jars. I started in 2004 when I saw David’s Cookie purse jars. I have about 20….most of them are DC. Most are seasonal so they are in boxes! Purchased the teapot jars from the movie event. Have not received them yet, but they should be here this week.
United States coins. My aunt worked at a bank while we were growing up. She would buy hundred dollar bags of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters. My cousins and I would sit on the floor and look at every coin trying to complete our coin books. We did this for years. Had so much fun and learned so much.
I use to collect Boyd’s Bears because I love bears but now I have them stashed about 150 of them in boxes because just too cluttery & now wish I had the money I spent on them.
Now I collect Dooney & Burke bags because they are a classic & well made & I just started collecting Heidi Daus back in the Fall because it is gorgeous and I collect Jay King because I love nature & stones fascinate me with all their beautiful colors & to imagine that they are hidden in the earth & then dug out & polished to such beauty just amazes me.
Also I collect dust in my home when I don’t feel well enough to dust every week. LOL
Years ago, I used to collect music boxes, and then lost interest in that and began to collect little lambs, because they reminded me of The Good Shepherd. You’d be surprised how many different kinds there are. I also collect vintage brooches. And…have a huge collection of “oldies, but goodies” LPs and 45’s.
I have a collection of perfume miniatures that I started because I love fragrance, and the little bottles are so cute. I have a Swarovski crystal collection that I started because the pieces are beautiful and sparkly. Also a small collection of miniatures that probably started with one piece. I stopped adding to those collections in the 90s.
I have an assortment of collectibles that I picked up at yard sales & flea markets “to sell on eBay,” but they all somehow became permanent fixtures in my house. I used to have a collection of Beatles records and memorabilia, and other assorted 60s & 70s music collectibles, but sold it all several years ago. I haven’t actively collected anything for about 3 years, and have been in a gradual and continuous purge mode. My 70s & 80s sterling jewelry doesn’t count. :womanwink:
For me the question should be “what DON’T I collect”!!!..LOL
Have mentioned before my parents having a soda fountain/candy store..
Have antique serving dishes from the store..lots of old Coca-Cola things, Bryers ice cream things and an old Hamilton Beach malted machine( I still use it but to make cocktails!)..My honey drew the line when I wanted to bring home the old wooden telephone booths that were inside the store..I told him he could play Superman!..He didn’t “buy that trick”:smileylol:
Then later we had a Gold Crown Hallmark card and gift shop..I collected everything from clowns, Ashton Drake dolls,Hallmark ornaments,Precious Moments..just to name a few..
My things I keep added to is I love old Carnival Glass,Depression Glass..Some things were inherited and pretty rare..
My kids say I should stop buying..because there isn’t a dumpster big enough for them to get to get rid of my “junk”!!:smileymad::smileyfrustrated:
Yes I have pretty much lead a charmed life..
Oh let’s not forget my jewelry…Honey worked in a high end jewelry company’s buying dept.
I collect miniatures!!!! They don’t have to be a certain kind. They just have to be adorable and make me smile! I do love when they r handmade, but I have been known to get stuck in the toy isle at Walmart picking out the cutest tiny plastic figurines! I’m 31, but I look more like a girl than a grown woman and feel like one too. LOL
I collect Angels. My guardian angel has saved my life more times than I can count. I firmly believe that angels exist. I just love collecting them. I used to collect crosses and snow globes too before we moved into a small apartment.
I collect crosses. Have a wall full of them and they are absolutely beautiful. My crosses come from all over the world. They have traveled far just to find them their new home…..”MINE.” Their places are, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Florida, Brazil, Venezuela and the list goes on—– Everyday I find myself looking at them and it gives a times to almost go back in a Time line of my life and reflect. And how the crosses make me feel….that I am so grateful for everything in my “LIFE!” I will either have to stop collecting or build another wall….lol.
Love all things Joan Boyce. Used to collect watches but can’t afford batteries for them all. Also had miniature footware (shoes, boots, sandals, high heals, etc). Music boxes a long time ago. Snow Village took 3-1/2 months to put it all up (over 50 buildings – couldn’t even put them all up at once). Beautiful when lit at night. 3 rows of shelves over every inch of the living room. Husband did fantastic job doing wiring & shelving for all of it. Many animated pcs. Truly a wonderland.
1) I collect jewelry. 2) I love fragrances so I have a bunch of different ones. 3)Shoes, yes I can never have too many. 4) Handbags. 5)At one point in time I was a coat collector. I stopped doing this. Something felt wrong about it after I donated so many that I couldn’t wear anymore. Me with all those coats and some with none. So # 5 probably doesn’t count that much.
I collect Heidi Daus because I love her sparkles.:heart:
I collect makeup…. especially eyeshadow palettes. :manembarrassed:
I collect tools. Big ones, little ones, but hey, I’m a guy. :manlol:
Love this, Snow! Okay, since jewelry and gemstones is likely too obvious an answer, and I already mentioned the frogs…ummm. I have over 100 bottles of nail polish, does that count? Actually, make-up, eye shadows in particular, I tend to hoard. Anything cooking or dining related. Swarovski and Waterford crystal, craft supplies, bath products, high end shoes and handbags…okay. Hubby is right. I am turning into a creepy prepper/hoarder type.
