Show and Tell Tuesday

Many of you remember that last week I asked if you’d send in a photo to share with the rest of us.

Well, I’ve received a few already and this is going to be fun! Welcome to the first installment of Show and Tell Tuesday! My plan is to post the photos on Tuesdays, in the order I receive them. 😀

This week, we have Donna’s (don_mae) very impressive collection of Gucci bags! I’ll let her tell you about it . . .

“This is over 25 years of buying.

I never saw a Gucci piece that I didn’t like and had to have. At first I was addicted to the brown pattern.

Then when the navy pattern came out, I bought even the SAME pieces I already had in brown. I was hopelessly addicted. My favorites are the train cases. Have them in brown and also navy.

After buying about half of this stuff, I told hubby not to worry. That I was just “adding to my investment – my 401G”. 😉

But, I now have my addiction under control. Retirement and being on a fixed income will do that. In 4 years I have only added these items.

And I have to tell you, I spent about 20 minutes looking around eBay yesterday for any Gucci vintage items that looked interesting. Thankfully I didn’t find any. Whew!!

Well, there you have it. Maybe I could open my own Gucci store.”


Thank you so much, Donna! It’s easy to see that your years of collecting have given you a lot of joy, and how nice that it was an investment, as well! 😀


More pictures next Tuesday! If you haven’t already, please send yours, too.




Show and Tell Tuesday — 10 Comments

  1. Thank you so much.

    I LOVE it!! You are quite the story teller!! 😀

    Hubby was with me when I purchased a few of these. I think he had as much fun in the Gucci store as I did.

    Can’t wait until next Tuesday’s Show and Tell.

  2. Impressive Collection!! Though I don’t share the desire to own Gucci, my daughter is a huge fan of Gucci and Coach.

    Here’s a thought…show your collections!! I have a few of THOSE. Remember those California Raisons? Or the Snoopies on Brach Candy boxes? Useless collections but I love them.

    Great post, Crissie/Donna Mae.

  3. What a beautiful collection. And I completely understand addictions of the accessory-kind.

    Great job Donna

  4. Yes!!! What Carol said!!!

    If you are wondering what to send for a photo – how about taking a picture of a collection you have?

    (Thank you, Carol 😉 )

  5. Great collection. Thank you so much for sharing. It is alot of fun to see other people’s mania. I find it amazing how many variety of things people collect. I commend you for your ability to control your buying on Ebay. It has made getting things so much easier.

  6. Impressive collection! I can spend hours on Ebay searching for things I would love to find at a less expensive price. Gucci patterns are very classic and eye-catching.

  7. Oh my goodness, what a BEAUTIFUL collection! Such a classy looking design that will never go out of style. Donna, thanks for sharing, and thank you to you Crystal for hosting this fun “Show and Tell Tuesday”! xoxo’s Paulette 😀
