Friday May 24 Last Day to Enter Collections Contest

The AuctionBytes Collections Contest is drawing to a close. Time for you last-minute slackers to grab that Nikon, iPhone, Droid, or even Brownie camera and send it in to the contest, so you have a chance at winning that $50! Just email it to me at  julia@auctionbytes.com, or post it to the AB Forum. Let's take a look at what we have until now: here's just part of the Collections Contest Pinterest Board:

We've got ash trays, a whole herd of model horses, tons of brass/copper, dragonware, Shirley Temple items, old railroad ties, miniatures, and more! Ina Steiner even shared with us her own obsession: Agatha Christie novels:

Ina said, "I'm a compulsive collector of Agatha Christie books - love the artwork on the paperbacks, and there are many different covers for the same title. Some people upcycle book covers, turning them into wallets and such, but I like them whole."
She added that she's enjoying all the photos fromr the contest.

(No, staffers aren't eligible to win). So please get those last-minute pix in - one will do, but more are OK...you can even email them to me at julia@auctionbytes.com.

(If you don't see your collection on the Pinterest board, post here or email me).

Now it's time to ask...which collection do you like the best? (Sure, you can vote for your own collection, but we'll probably know it's you). ;)  And if you entered the contest, tell us more about how you got started with your collection, and how much pleasure you get out of it. Post a comment here!

While I didn't get my collection in, I was glad to see model horses represented.  What you might not know is the nationwide competitions we have with our models, plastic horses like Breyers, resins like Pam's and china (my genre).  They can be original factory finish or customized by artists.  The resins Pam's are artist sculpted (not those cheap resins you see at flea markets).

For more information, google NAMHSA

I will vote for Pam's Breyer Collection.  She has some beauties.

I like "Pam's Katsin collection" of Native Americans statues.

I'm enjoying looking at all the collections. I thought it was one photo, though. :(
