Did You Have Any Collections As A Child?

I had a very long dresser.  I collected glass painted horses, a few of our breed of dog, and rocks. I also had a paperback book on rocks.

I collected nutcrackers, I don’t really care for them now, but I loved them as a child.

now, ask me as an adult... that's when it got baaad.  i started out on thimbles.  from everywhere. then David somebody cottages.  then I hit the harder stuff like vintage handbags. then I couldn't stop, and graduated to designer handbags.  thas where i am now.  over 200 hand bags,most in storage bins.  sick and a waste.  if there was a purse museum I would donate....but I wouldn't want to see them on eBay as many are rare  and historic

My father purchased dolls for me that were representative of countries that he visited.  I had an extensive book collection, as basically those were my go-to presents.

@shoekitty   I know you are aware that designer handbags do retain a lot of their value. When you are ready, I'm sure you will find a venue for your precious bags.
