The Next Generation Of Collectors
Posted 12 April 2005 - 07:18 AM
At the moment no one in my family shares my addiction for solids, I am however trying to get my close friend to start collecting. I have in the past given gifts of solids to my Mother and Sister who used the perfume and then returned the empty compact to me.

I have no close relatives whom I know of that share in this phenomenon
of collecting the perfume solids.
So Perhaps I could donate them to a museum if ones exists.
"Is there one, Lisa?"

I've got it written into my will - one sister gets the solids, the other gets the Beanie Babies (HA HA! - it's true, because she made me start collecting them, and now they are worthless, so she get's em!).
Lisa, I'd be honored to be your beneficiary...

When I'm gone, my husband will sell'em in a local garage sale for a buck a piece ... just kidding . Let's be serios - he even likes'em, but mostly my novelty mini perfume collection. It was him who brung me into this hobby tirtheen years ago - he is the real collecter and hunter in the family (old records, Jukeboxes and classic cars ). He tought like that with me collecting solids, he's got further permission for his toys...
But as I got two daughter's (Noemi 10 and Felisha 7) will get'em. They handle even now out, which one will get every new piece in my collection. Also our youngest son (Jeronimo 5) announces his interesst in all the perfumes related to cars...!! I hope they will continue with the same entusiasm

I don't have any kids...and not sure if I will. I have a very small family. None of them collect solids or anything else (mom used to collect Nippon pottery but hasn't bought anything in 20 years). Also, family members will damage or loose solids (mom is the only exception).
Anyhoo, I told my husband that he can keep/sell my solids if he wants. He gets 1st dibs on anything I own. He moves like a snail, so my solids will lay dormant for awhile. You won't see any immediate ebay listings that's for sure.
My 2nd choice is my brother-in-law. He is good at taking care of stuff (especially collectables). I trust my solids will remain mint with him. He isn't interested in collecting solids, so I know full well that he will sell them on ebay. I don't care if I'm dead.
Similar but different....Don't want to be too gloomy, but I'd sell 50-90% of my collections right away if something bad happened.

And NFJ1064, if you would like a Harrods Van with perfume, then I have one here in the U.K.
Am going back to the bling bling in the other post. That really is making me roar with laughter. Greyhound, get moving over there!

My husband collects cars as well. We had an old classic ford that we used to put into county shows. The only trouble was that we had to book it in 6months in advance. On a nice sunny day it was good because we got into the rest of the show for free and we would take food with us and have a picnic but with our British weather more often or not it would rain, in the end I got fed up with getting wet and sitting with my feet in 2inches of mud. In the end my husband sold her, it broke my heart to see her go but we know she went to a good home and a young collector.

No-one I know in person are Ebay addicts, so I don't know if they'd end up there either. But like Greyhound says, I'll be gone, so I won't be here to care!
It's a bit of a gloomy subject . . . . . makes me wonder about the member we lost a year ago. Boo Hoo!!!

My Grandmother collected tea cups and I always admired her collection when I was younger I always let her know which ones I wanted.
Don't under any circumstances think I could ever part with even one of my solids.
