She collected carrier bags :confused: :chin:


So do I :o Recently I threw out a whole stash of hoarded carrier bags into a recycling bin and it felt quite cathartic.

I went to a collecting exhibition at Carlisle museum several years ago. They had someone's collection of carrier bags strung all around the walls and across the ceiling, like Christmas decorations. There was also a cabinet with someone's massive collection of "My Little Pony" toys... Dinky toys... Badges... All kinds of stuff. It was actually all pretty interesting.

snowglobes - oops, thats what i meant in my earlier post, but I said snowstorms. Did it still make sense?

I bet they look fab - nuttywoman, my friends collection does , and attracts much comment! Everyone has their favourites.

I am a collector of Disney pins. I have quite a large collection which is forever growing. I focus in particular on Disney theme parks and Mickey Mouse.

There the truth is out. :oops:

You could get a lot on ebay for them, depending what they are.

There is a huge worldwide market for them.

Mentioning the sick bags you collect, reminds me of a `ladies paper bag ` the ones that are sometimes in ladies loos to put `ladies things in them ` well my daughter brought one home from a loo in Germany and it had a Pistol motif on it. Why ?

This story in all the papers a couple of day ago, about a stamp collector who embezzled £70k to feed his stamp collecting habit :eek4:

Fanatical stamp collector steals £70,000 from churches

I am pretty sure I have that World Cup '66 stamp shown in the article... I have an old childhood album stored away somewhere with lots of old stamps that I inherited from a family friend - I think it's in there :chin:

I used to collect coffee jars. not different jars but the one's I'd used. Gold Blend. I collected hundreds of them in a few years. I took them down the bottle bank when I moved house though. The pointless collection was of it's time. :)
