Probably a dumb question.


Recommended Posts

There are no dumb questions here.

Clearies and solids may find use by a number of crafters.

I display a few larger clearies on the window sill.

It is hard to seperate company from company with this type. Masters are pretty easy but the rest?

You may get a box some day that needs a few, you never know.

Marble--On!!

So, zero collection value in the majority, right?  I want to keep some like the UV ones and ones that have special things going on in them as far as their pattern, but the rest can go, right? 

Nobody needs this many clearies and solid.  lol

Sure they can go.

Fill a canning jar with clearies and put it in a sunny window first, you may want to keep them or sell them at a rummage sale.

I have read of these creating burn marks so be carefull.

As you mention, keep ones that have distinct patterns or are otherwise "different".  You may want to keep an example of each color and size (that'll be a lot by itself).  As mentioned, you may buy a box of Chinese Checkers (Vitro, Akro, etc.) and need to replace or fill one in.  Or a fellow collector may be looking for a certain type.

Thank you!  That helps!

Buy a slingshot…

or throw handfuls on a local beach or playground for the kids to find.

we give away bags to kids at antique shows to offset the boredom generated by their parents forcing them to go. And if any become future collectors, we’ll have a market for selling our collection when the time comes.

All great ideas!  :)
