Dad had shaving mugs. Mom had school bells. Dad purged several years ago (I have 3) but I just spent $150 shipping 5 boxes of school bells across the country. I don't collect anything, and if I did, I wouldn't expect my son to continue it. Is it a southern thing? My cousin has Precious Moments figurines (GAH!) My uncle, Corvairs. My aunt, Longaberger Baskets.
