I've come to the conclusion that I have another addiction. If I possess one of something and I see another similar one at a garage sale or auction, I buy it so the first one won't stand out so much. To keep the little buggers from being lonely, I just keep adding and creating more collections. Case in point, I had some pieces of 70's green glass that I liked and you know they almost give that stuff away, so this is part of what I have.
I have a shelf about 12 feet long the entire length of one of the bedrooms rapidly filling with this stuff. One end is the 70's avocado green and this end is the emerald green glass. I just really enjoy looking a them as a whole. Most of them are only worth a couple of bucks.
Here is my upstairs guest room collection. The heat detector sets right in the middle of the shelf, so I'm only showing half. This cobalt colored stuff is a little harder to find on the cheap.
Cheap art and it's fun to search for. What can I say? Do you know the cure for this addiction? I'm thinking that if they suddenly become highly collectible, I would be motivated to sell them. Then, again, if they were valuable, I'd be on look out for more. I think I may be incurable.
