|Mama's Collections started out as a hobby of collecting "Antique
and Collectibles", Mama started collecting small items such as miniature
cups and saucers by Shelly. Then interest changed and she started to collect
larger items such as the normal size Shelly Bone China. After here cabinet
were all filled up with just about every piece of chinaware Shelly produced,
her interest change again. Mama started to collect Lucite Handbags. Then
later, back to China and porcelain again and this time is Noritake Lusterwares.
No long after that she start to collect vanity trays, jewelry casket, perfume
bottle, perfume atomizers and everything else.
Half of the house became Mama's museum of her collections. More cabinet
and shelf need to be added to display and store her collection. The inventory
is getting huge. Antiques and collectibles are everywhere. Once in a long
while Mama would lose interest in a certain piece or an entire group,
she would "trade" up with other pieces. Trading leaded to interest
of other trading of her collection. Mama eventually become a dealer.
