Souvenir thimbles (Merete, Norway)

Since 1997 I have collected thimbles. Souvenir thimbles, that is. Instead of bringing home loads of souvenirs that will just be stuffed in boxes and stored after awhile, I found that a thimble collection would be much better. They are small and easy to bring home, and put together, they are also decorative.

I love travelling, and my collection is slowly growing. Friends and family have found that a thimble is a great gift when they are out travelling to, so I have two displays in my living room – one with thimbles from places where I have actually been myself, and one with contribution from others.

The sad thing is, that I started collecting 'so late in life'. I am missing thimbles from several places I will hardly visit again, such as Seychelles, Mauritius, Bangladesh, China and Bulgaria.

This is a great site – and if anyone reading this actually have souvenir thimbles form any of the countries mentioned above, and are willing to sell them to me, please contact me on my blog.

Greetings from Norway!!!
