Who is Marbleized--My Intro.

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,  First of all, I'd like to thank all of you in advance for allowing me to read your posts to learn about marbles.  Just wanted to share a little about me, since there was a spot on the menu to do so.  I got started in January 2019 after doing a symbolic purge to get ready for a new phase in life--retirement.  I came across a bag of marbles that I had, nothing great, mainly cat-eyes that were probably made in Japan.  But, I'm like a raccoon,  drawn to things that are shiny.  I put them in a jar and then I became hooked.  I started to look around on eBay, where I still get most of my marbles since vintage marble sales are pretty bleak where I live. Anyway, I swear that I still buy according to how something looks and not how collectible it is.  I do want to kick up my knowledge level a few notches--actually a ton of notches and go beyond just being able to identify the common Akro corkscrews and Peltier rainbos.  So that's my story.  If I sound ignorant about something I'm hoping someone will enlighten me.  Thanks for reading! Happy Thanksgiving!
