Last weeks I've also been busy (besides of other activities) re-organizing the house, to get my daughter of 3 a room of her own in some weeks.

And look what I've found: my collection of puzzles I had in my teenage years (around 1980 - 1988). And also some items I added recently.

No arguing with the wife: the collection is still small (and largely not visible / show cased). ;-)

I acquired the puzzles (of some I even didn't know I acquired those) as of general interest. So I'm not a real collector of these kind of items (I am of other stuff) but I dare to show it here.

Well that last comment makes me feel much better!!! :shock:

I think at last count I was just up to 400 (although to make it seem better, at least 60 of them are wire/string disentanglement puzzles!!)
I had better do as I am told and show you the pics:

I also have 2 drawers full of stuff which is not suitable for display and a few others dotted around the house! (Don't tell Mrs S!!! :lol: )

You will be pleased to know that there are 3 1⁄2 empty shelves ready to be filled up!! :D :lol:

OK Guys! I have 'fessed up!! Show us pictures of your collections - the collections section of the TP site just doesn't cut it anymore! We need pics!!! :twisted:

I wish I could. I have about 400 puzzles, but they all have to be stored away in boxes in the loft (attic) because I have no room to display them. This makes me very sad :(

Here the same, no room for display, the puzzles are in boxes. Some puzzles that I trying to solve are here and there in the house. Only about 10% of my puzzles are twisty's, the rest is wide variety of put-together, take-apart, wire, metal .....

Just doing some re-organization right now (new cabinets!!), so I only have teasers at this point...I'll post a new topic when I get the chance. Just be sure to note that those boxes are all of the puzzles outside of the cabinets, not just the same stuff rearranged...
