Sharon R. from St. Charles, Missouri
My first Jim Shore figurine was a Christmas present from my supervisor, Donna. It was a tall, slender old world Santa Claus. I absolutely fell in love with it and was amazed by the detail. This was twelve years ago and I have been a Jim Shore addict every since!
At first I started out with just santa figurines. Then branched out to snowmen & angels. After that I discovered Wizard of Oz, Snow White & (of course) the Dwarfs, Peanuts, Disney, Boyd’s Bears, Woody & Buzz Lightyear and Mickey Mouse.
I also have seasonal/holiday figurines. Especially like the seasonal baskets. Can’t forget about the Easter & Halloween ones! That doesn’t exclude any other piece that made me smile!! All total I have eight cram packed full curio cabinets and 14 tall floor figurines.
If I were to pick my favorite the list would go on and on and on…..My husband said if I keep collecting at this pace we may need a bigger house! My bucket list includes meeting Mr. Shore – possibly a signing at First Capitol Trading Post in St. Charles, MO – hint, hint!!
From a forever fan…..
