Look What I Found in My Closet


A long time ago, before I had kids, I had a lot more time on my hands (and a bit more money) to devote to my hobbies. Back when I met my husband, 20+ years ago, we were both deeply into 1960s music. I went to memorabilia shows and bought vintage collectibles related to my favourite classic bands, the Beatles and the Monkees.

Here is most of my collection – trading cards, magazines, postage stamps, buttons, cake toppers, a record case, etc. My favourites are the adorable Monkees finger puppets. (There was no Peter Tork puppet, since he’d left the band by then; I ended up with two Mickys since one of them had boots and the other had a complete necklace.) Eventually, I put everything in a box and stashed it in my closet. I sort of forgot about it until recently. I probably won’t add any more to it, but I still think it’s groovy.

Do you have a favourite collection, from the past or present?

  1. I resent that the Monkees are vintage! LOL I loved watching their show and I was so in love with Davy. He was so dreamy. I collect salt and pepper shakers. I have about 50 sets now; some are from travels, some are from childhood, and some were just so cute I had to get them.
