Around 1988 I started buying an ornament now and then.
As knowledge increased, so did my enthusiasm and collecting fever. When I started I was rather, also due to ignorance, limited to the local market. That is one of the main reasons that the collection comprises various Christmas themes and is not limited to just one Christmas subject or period. Although I must say that now I do try to avoid the more modern ones, unless they tickle my fancy. Some people have told me to keep the pretty and valuable ones only and to get rid of all the others, but to me the more ordinary and simple things also reflect the Christmas spirit. I am especially fond of the homemade items, but they are not so easy to get hold of, as they were very often thrown away.
Most of the time I have intentionally not dated items. I would only be quoting others and in the now available information I see that now and then dating is at least questionable. But, if asked, I will, to the best of my ability, help with this information.
