    what a pain in the butt. first i had to find all the boxes in my step dads attic. bring them all downstairs. then match the box(with picture) to the figurine. i am giving up for the night now.

    i still can't believe people collect these things.

    Why are you packing them up? LOL My Mother in law collects them and they are all over the house, I cannot believe the cost of them, not a fan I guess...

    some work is being done to his house and he does not want them to be damaged.

    one box had a price tag on it for $412 and that was back in 1988.

    i don't get it.

    I used to collect Hummels, and still have a bunch of them. I have the little individual boxes in a large box in the attic. The figurines are in a display cabinet in my dining room. Most of them were gifts.

    Good luck with getting them all boxed up.

    When hubby and I were house hunting we saw this place that was wall to wall furniture, wall art, and those glass display cases. They had at least 10 display cases full of figurines. I just can't imagine the amount of money spent on all that stuff.

    If I have to dust it, forget it. So I guess I don't get it either.

    After reading your title I had visions of you in a ring with gloves on sparring with a bunch of tiny figurines. :)
