Show And Tell Friday

Today I would like to share my vintage charm collection. I have no idea what it is worth, but it brings back priceless memories. My Grandmother had them in this very same box for me. I remember sorting through it and talking with her for hours when I was a little girl. We'd find matches, sort, look and talk. *sigh*
I may use a few for collage work to be posted in my home, but otherwise, the collection will stay the same as always. Thanks for looking and if you would like to join Kelli's Show and Tell Friday, click on the link at the side. It great fun to see what everyone is sharing and they are a very kind group of ladies.

Oh I loved boxes of stuff like this when I was little!!! I had that one dog with the walking legs too. I think many of yours are old cracker jack prizes and may even be worth some $. Not that you could stand to part with any, right?

Those look like old cracker jack charms. I bought a huge bag full for $3 bucks. I think if you go to ebay you could get prices for them... (not to sell, just to know~)The true value is in the memories you get everytime you lift the lid.

How nice that you have memories of time spent with your grandmother sorting through these charms. Blessings.

Thanks for sharing. It reminded me of doing similar things at my aunt's house. What precious bonding time!

Oh, owning such a lovely collection of childhoud memories is a real treasure! How lucky you are!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, I would be prepared to sell some of my pottery balls (but never did it so far). I am thinking of putting them on ebay.

Is there a special one you would be interested in? Would you be interested in an ebay sale?

Best wishes from Germany,
Anita

Hey Trudi, I have a little box at school filled with all kinds of little trinkets like the one you posted. I use them with my students to make an "I Spy" page like the I spy books. They pick out 7 things and they have to tell how they are all connected to each other (language development)then they pick out 7 other random trinkets (not related to each other) next they arrange them on a piece of transparency film and we lay it on the scanner and scan it then print it out and lastly they write a riddle about the related trinkets (just like the I Spy books). They LOVE it!

Adorable!! Oh, the charm bracelets I could make if I got my hands on those... :)

Those are delightful, and particularly special for the memories with your grandmother. I spotted a cute little Scotty in the mix.

I have charms, too and I don't want to use them, I just like to look at them, LOL
I am glad they bring you wonderful memories!
