My Vintage Toy Collection
This is the first time I've displayed my toy collection all in one place. I started collecting in 2001 when I worked at The Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. It was my first real job and I worked in the Antique business for a total of 7 years. When you work around antiques and collectibles, you tend to start collecting. It all started with one smurf figurine. Which then turned into 5,....which quickly turned into 150 and some mushroom houses. My collecting has slowed down because space is limited in our apartment. It was better for me to display it in our second bedroom, then keep it all packed up in the totes!
Now my main focus is on Vinylmations. I have displayed them in our living room. (pictures to come later) I still have some more things to display, but ran out of shelving. I think it is fun to look at everything and some of the items are actually my toys from my childhood. Keeps me feeling young I guess. lol
