Hand Collection

I think this may be the very first collection I ever started. When I met my husband he had this antique cabinet in the parlor that I claimed right away for displaying them all. The cabinet has doors that need curved glass(maybe someday we'll get that done!). We have it in the dining room now. I think I have close to 100 hands. I haven't bought any for several years-moving on to many new collections.
The big one with the pink base was the first bought at Mrs. Davis's junk shop when I was in gradeschool. I have one shelf for praying hands only.

The lady that owned the shop was a wonderful old lady named Mrs. Davis and I frequented her shop until just a few years ago when she died. She had the kind of shop with just piles and piles and boxes of things waiting to be discovered. She was a very special lady to me because we could visit about so many things. Her prices were wonderful and she kept buying and buying even when she had stuff that would never be discovered. She was very generous to others, but a strong lady in spirit and body. She owned several rental properties and did a lot of the work herself. There isn't many places around like her shop and certainly not many women like her-I still miss her!
