My collection has evolved over the years including a dramatic downsizing period beginning in 2006 upon realization that my interests had changed over time and become more fine tuned.
The downsize involved successfully finding new homes for the majority of my collection at the time and basically starting over from scratch.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to find and acquire what I did in the relatively short period of time since then.
It continues to be intent to donate my collection someday somewhere for people to continue to enjoy and learn about.
One might notice when looking at my collection above that it sadly still lacks examples of transfer-printed suckling and bubby pots. While no longer actively collecting (that is what I tell myself) I will forever be in the hunt to add examples of these to my collection.
