Now I think I know what happened, I forgot to hit Add Comment. Well anyway, my father was a pilot in the Air Force, and traveled to many countries. He would always send home something from wherever he would go. My sister passed away in 2007, so I inherited her keepsakes too. Now, I am 67, and would rather have the money than all of the keepsakes, and that way someone else could enjoy them too. I have figurines, dishes, vases, cloth, and many other things. Thank you for asking. Jo
Well the way it started for me is I just needed a break from homework so.I started going to resale shops and learned these places are crawling with cool stuff and I love wierd looking things and figurines so now I just keep picking up all these little things and have no clue as to what some of them are, so I will reswarc some of the info if there are matkings, that is how I ended up with my Corday statue, I don't know what im gonna do with her but I have her, and a.whole bunch.of other stuff im trying to figure out too.
