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 #80: Lunchboxes
OFFICIAL DISCLAIMER: These are all reproductions! As much as I love old lunchboxes from the 50s & 60s, I do not collect them! But, as a substitute, I often pick up the mini lunchboxes & other fun tin cases when I see them! The small ones on the bottom row were once sold with candy in them. (I would say I collect candy too, but I eat it too fast!) The Gene Autry lunchbox was the housing for a Fossil Gene Autry watch, purchased in 1995.
I love the Mike Mulligan box- for those not in the know, Mike Mulligan & His Steam Shovel was a classic children's book, written by Virginia Lee Burton in 1939. I happen to have a vintage copy of that adorable book!
