I have been a collector since I was a child.... mostly aimless & pointless collections. Nothing very valuable, not too trendy, and rarely in mint condition. Just a plethora of "stuff" that I've had fun adding to through the years. If I have at least 3, I consider it a collection. I'll be posting a different collection daily, Monday through Friday, and spotlighting some other marvelous collections I've discovered on the weekends. I hope you stop by often!

COLLECTION #52: Old Music Strings
Aren't these fun? Packets and boxes of vintage musical strings- strings for ukulele and mandolin. I love the great old fonts, and the fun graphics on the packaging. It's nice to have something still in its original packaging, untouched and unused. They are still as bright and shiny as they were when they came out of the factory. I really haven't made any attempt to date these strings, but my guess would be the 20s and 30s. Click on any of the images for a closer view.
