I've collected many different things over the years and my tiny houses has been one of my favorites. I started collecting them as a newlywed in the 1970's and I think they were a popular theme because several companies started putting out miniature house collectibles.
My collection is very eclectic - some houses are very simple and rustic,
while some are historically accurate. This is the John Benbow Farmhouse in England. It has great detail.
I have houses made of wood, ceramic, paper, glass and tin.
A few are functional - I have a butter dish, mugs, cookie jar and cruets.
But I find that my tastes have changed over the years and I rarely notice my little house collection any more. I'm thinking of taking my houses into my antique store and selling them.What do you think? Does one keep a collection forever or clean out the old to make room for something else?
I like to join these parties
