Walking down memory lane in CA
« on: November 20, 2018, 04:12:33 AM »
Hello!

  When I was a child I used to collect just about anything that could be collected; stamps, coins, pencils, erasers, you name it. Definitely got that from my mom. Recently my brother put his foot down and forced my mom to go through the boxes of "stuff" that she had saved after 45 years of living in the same house, and low and behold all of our childhood toys and collections resurfaced!

   It has been so much fun looking through everything, but now both my mom and I are feeling the pain of having to let go....either that or start bringing everything over to my house, which is already going down the path of unhealthy clutter.

   I went in with the intent of donating everything, but I'm finding it especially hard to say goodbye to the Ponies; I LOVED these back in the day! And reading about MLP Fair is only bringing out the collecting fervor in me.

   Sooo....I've allowed myself to become a collector once more on the condition that I keep only what would fit onto the one free shelf I have left (thank goodness the ponies are small!). Or maybe that just means I need to downsize the Breyer horse and vintage Pyrex collections!

   Anyway, happy to say that I had already managed to snag my favorites way back then, Li'l Cupcake and Li'l Sweetcake Sisters; but I'd love to add the pearlized baby ponies to the gang.

 Looking forward to exploring the Arena and getting to know fellow collectors!

Why did your brother make your mom go threw her stuff? Do she have to move out of her house? I am sorry to hear that your having to go threw that along with your mom!

Ponies are so hard to find new homes for! If they make you happy then keep them! :) I collect ponies and Breyers! :)

Hey there fellow Breyer collector!
   
 We think my parents were starting to have a rodent problem, but the exterminator was having a hard time inspecting the house because my mom had boxes of things stacked up from floor to ceiling in two of the rooms!  :shocked:
  It was tough for her, but we managed to clear out a good amount now, hehe.

  The more I think about it, the more I'm tempted to keep the ponies, those G1's really are cute  :biggrin:

  What are your favorite Breyers to collect? Mine are mostly older too, but the newer ones are pretty amazing!
