along my travels, i had picked up 10 coffee mugs in the mid-west, for a dollar each. made of something called jadeite. (or is it jadite? i don't know what the hell it's called) i bought them because i loved their color and smoothed, beach glass feel. so i used this as a spring board. i began to search this newly created site called, 'ebay' and i hit the motherlode. all these years later, i own a great collection of jadeite. i would love to add more to it, but frankly, the prices are ridiculous (those coffee mugs? easily 10 bucks a piece these days..oh, and at one point, i started to collect vintage egg cups. most have been tossed by now) collections can start anywhere. and can be found in the best places.....
what i love about collections is the strong emotional draw people have to an item.

kaylovesvintage no matter, where you search, if you focus, you'll find your little collection camillae
