From Street To Street

Went on a weekend search yesterday with a friend who shares a common interest in collectibles.  Found out that he has a huge collection of souvenirs as memorabilia. From M&M dispensers, alarm clocks, pen holders, coca cola bottles, hardrock cafe glassware to pure silver coins and special currency notes. From my understanding, he had set for himself an unwritten guidelines to stay focus on a selected few, otherwise his collection could well bloated out to include a lot more. This hobby is relatively new for me and going through it over the last few weeks, I realized that one can easily get carried away. There are simply so much out there and most will easily catch your attention.  It can be very addictive but manged properly it should be a very interesting hobby, filled with surprises and most of the time brings back memories of the bygone era.

The weather was burning hot. We were both in our shorts and T’s and each of us was wearing our own cap. Did wish that we have sun-block applied though. Anyway we went from one street to another. At each location we both managed to find something we like.  I have mine uploaded onto this post…will try to get some pictures of his find to share with you…will have to ask first.

Besides the Old Balance Weigh shown above, I have also found and added the following into my collection:

1) OKI OKI ( wobbling away on youtube )

2) China-Man ( an art collection of China’s Great Leaders and His People )

3) Another Once-Sunken-Now-Found Porcelain
