Marbleholics Anonymous Meeting

During my travels this holiday weekend past, every time I drove past a property littered with rusted cars, old farm equipment, odds and ends junk, I wanted to stop, go too the door and ask permission too search. Awww, too heck with that...I WANTED TO RIP THEIR PROPERTY APART.

If a tractor tire or a cow happens  to lands in your front yard, you'll know I flipped.

As I sit home today watching the news, one of the headlines has me leaning up out of my chair. Turns out not only did Winona, Minnesota get a ton of rain yesterday, but also a major public "disturbance" at it's well known antique mall, "Treasures Under Sugar Loaf".

Footage from the late afternoon yesterday shows the front door off it's hinges and various antiques scattered in the parking lot. Inside, the scene is a bunch of shattered glass and huge vendor display cases tossed on there sides.

With the local authorities milling about, a reporter from the news station I am watching is interviewing a visibly shaken employee, asking the question "Who's responsible for all this carnage?" 

She replies "It was a customer who shops here about once a month". "He collects marbles." "He shopped for probably 2 hours before coming back to the front desk with nothing in his hands, looking kinda weird." "He stated that everywhere he looked, all he saw was cheap, overpriced glass." With every word, his voice got deeper and his skin began quickly changing too this greenish color." "And he got so BIG!" "He just started yelling William SMASH, William SMASH!" 

I just sat there thinking Oh my God what have I done. I really need to score soon or get serious help 🤢

Cruelty free, I think not. It was cruel for the local market to throw you under the bus with this teaser 🤣

Just a happy guy with a fever 

Regular at the 2nd hand stores checking for new bags of marbles 

Sometimes i get lucky 

And the waiting on the boxes to arrive from friends in the USA makes it very addictive

Making pictures and collages from the marbles i find and gifted by friends is part of me collecting and enjoying it for 200% 

It got me....🥳

And when i hit then with UV....thats when the magic happens 😎👍

I stopped in a local antique store today and went thru a booths marble box. Been looking in it for 4 years on a regular basis, $1/mib. Found a MK hybrid that matched a set of 5 I found locally a few years back. What are the odds?

I took it to the cashier and excitedly, with a stupid grin,  told her her “I found one of my marbles”, she lost it. Definitely made both our day.

Funny, Brad, sounds like you still have a ways to go. lol

And it always surprises me when you find matching marbles so far separated in time and space, but it does happen - certainly less so with something like a distinctive hybrid though - It's all about the numbers.

Can this qualify as an "Anonymous Tip"? After reading about Tommy's "troubles" in his thread under "Marble IDs", he might need more help. He stated that he would check in on Tuesday. If not, please send out the Guy's in White!!!! Hopefully you don't have to sedate him....
