Meet the Collector: Marge Horner, A Collector of Antique Toys

Part of our Everyone is a Collector campaign, today we introduce a person who will probably be adding more to her collection as we enter spring. Marge Horner has had a particular partiality towards rabbit-themed toys and has kept at it for about twenty-five years. Let’s “hop right to” how it all started:

Tell us everything about this collection! What attracted you to this? What do you like most about it? Which one is your favorite?

The first rabbit toy I found was odd, beat up, dirty, and old – I loved it. Then I started finding other old plastic rabbits that I fell in love with. I also found a few fabric dolls with plastic faces that I thought were kind of funny, so I threw them into the collection for good measure. My favorite toy is the small, pink rabbit in a dress wearing a pair of eyeglasses.

What inspires you most about having your collection in your home? 

It’s just a feel-good collection.

twenty-five years of bunny-themed toys!

When Marge is not on the lookout for anything of the bunny-sort, she also enjoys collecting Mexican Folk Art, Seminole Indian Dolls, and Snow Globes.

What is it that you collect? We’d love to know! Be part of InLiquid’s ongoing campaign, Everyone is a Collector today!

Share your Collection!
