Magnets? You can never have too many souvenir magnets!
I've been collecting souvenir magnets for about a year or so and by now...I think I have over a hundred! I figured that it was about time I share my largest collection with you guys! Plus, I really needed something to take my mind off of Scooter, so I thought this would be a nice idea. I'm really, really missing him right now...Anyways, my whole plan is to have an awesome collection to display on my fridge in my first apartment! Originally, I kept them stuck to my metal desk, but then I ran out of room so now they unfortunately are stored under my bed in a box. :( Almost all of these I have swapped for, but a lot of them were also sent to me by friends! I'm very proud of them all! I'm not going to show you them all, but I'll show you the various types as well as some favorites!
Here is the whole lot, housed in a 'Blowfish' boot box! Fits perfectly under my bed!
Of course, Paris first, since I'm obsessed with Paris! ANYTHING Paris! I just love it all!
Kazakhstan and Melaka!
Washington D.C. and Quebec rubber names! Love this style!
New York! The two large ones are from my mom's last trip and the small one was sent from a friend!
Scotland and Denmark rubber magnets. Again, love rubber mangnets!
Canada and Seattle flat magnets!
Tahiti (gecko!), Spain, and two Canadian rubber ones!
Rhodes and Sardinia flip flops!
I love this Toronto one!
Matroyshka dolls (which I also collect in general!) and Dutch clogs!
Wales! Another favorite!
And lastly, some US ones! Standard state flat magnets with facts about the state pictures and three magnets from Hawaii! I love the sea turtle and Hello Kitty one!
What do ya'll think? Do any of you collect souvenir magnets? Do you actually keep them on your fridge?
Oh! And on an un-related note, is there anyone who would be willing to do a small swap? I have a friend ranting and raving about how amazing Stroopwafels are and I would kill to try one!
OH! And also another un-related thing! I making custom address labels again! Shoot me an email if you guys are interested and I will send you some samples! :D
