Starting a collection, can I have yours :)

Hi all of you fine folks.
I have decided that I need to get something new.
Only problem is, I want any and all I can find.
I have a new affection for covered butter dishes.
I need all you don't want. Happy to pay shipping.
My DH promised to make me a showcase if it gets to be real collection.
Please don't advise me to go to EB@y. I already have.
And I'm scared what's gonna arrive....soon.........
PM me if you have one that I can hornswaggle you out of

Now, what do you collect or need? Just ask you never know....
Any takers????

Do you have a "type" preference, LEFSE? Or, is any one fair game? Covered butter dishes come in glass, china, ceramic, plastic, metal, etc. I'll look and see what we might have that we don't need and/or want any longer.

You might also check into FreeCycle in your area. That's a good resource for finding all kinds of things...for free. Yeah!

I don't own even ONE butter dish!!!

I have a "fancy" for bowls - It's not like I have a LOT, but I certainly have more than I need! LOL

PLEASE take my butter dish I HATE the thing!

It's heavy and ceramic and the cover has no handle. Hard to pick up sometimes.

I started to collect Swarovski crystal pieces. Until I had 2 more babies, quit my real job and got poor. Now I just collect dust. And legos in my foot.

Wow, suzie! I collected those same things when we were raising our 5 children. Gotta love the lego marks on the bottom of our feet.

You should check out any thrift stores near you. We have a Habitat for Humanity thrift shop and a Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters thrift shop nearby.
They are a good place to find such items.
Once spring and summer get here, another good source might be Yard/Garage sales. Good Luck!!

Oh BuckyTom, please check MIL's stuff, yes please!
I have a dollar bill, it's not real old, I mean in the grand scheme of things, but it's completely smeared. The green ink is everywhere. I don't know how it passed inspection, but I have it just the same and love it.

Never heard of freecycle and after looking it up online just now, I don't think I have one in my neck of the woods. I want any and all. I'd really love plain ole glass clear with no chips if possible. After that, I'm open to all.
A year ago cleaning out my mothers house to sell it, I tossed about 25 sets of her collected salt and pepper shakers. I am so mad at myself for doing that. But I was alone, doing it by myself, annoyed, overworked, stressed and too busy to think about bringing all this stuff home. In the dumpster it all went. What a waste.

TOSSED Salt and Peppers? EGADS!!!
Some of those could have been worth a lot!

My Mom collected Depression glass. If I had more time and energy, I would go through the 150 liquor boxes of glass I have and look for some for you. Pity you don't do refrigerator boxes, I have a couple of those on a shelf.

(Was ebaying the stuff, but without pattern ID, it's a waste of time. And IDing the patterns was a lot like work. I will stick to my ephemera, thank you.)

Oh she had GREAT fun collecting it!
And up until ebay went public, it was a nice investment.

Now, local auctioneers tell me "hold it till the Depression glass market
recovers... 5 to 10 years probably."

Weee haw.

LEFSE... you don't understand.. I wasn't kidding. There are ACTUALLY 157 boxes of
this stuff, and it is marked "green glass" or "blue glass" or such, so I have no idea
where the butter dishes are. The thought of digging through it is too scary....
wayyy toooo scary! LOLOL sorry.

these were started just a little over an hour apart

Should these two be joined? I started mine for a butter dish reason. Hum, I think two threads both on collecting started very close in time, could confuse. It is okay to join if mods think so, just an idea, cause I started it first and "I'M" confused
