Another one for my collection

Today I added another mouse ornament to my collection. It’s one from the Country Artists range, dated 1999, and is titled Pair of Mice & Old Bike Saddle. At just less than 3 ins tall it’s quite a delicate little piece and really quite pretty, though the photo doesn’t do it justice. I got it off ebay, which is where a great majority of my collectibles have come from, and it was a steal at just a couple of quid with a very reasonable postage charge.

In actual fact, earlier this evening I quickly checked ebay and found another mouse of a different make, with the auction ending round about 11pm, so I used an auction sniper to put a bid in for me in case I went to bed before the auction finished. I didn’t however, and while I was typing the above paragraph I got an email to say I’d won the mouse for the ‘extravagant’ sum of 99p – now that’s definitely a bargain!

  1. Over the last few years I’ve found several retired exclusive pieces on ebay which I’ve managed to get very cheaply when the original price would have been upwards of £300 from a collectors club – I’ve often wondered if the sellers don’t know their true value or if they just want to get rid of them. I keep promising myself that one day I’ll get round to cataloguing all my pieces but I’ve not managed it yet.
