View Full Version : Some new marbles

Hello all.

We made a trip up north to see Bill's(justanolddigger) son get married last weekend. It was great to see Bill and his wife Mary. The wedding was perfect and the reception rocked.

I also acquired some marbles while traveling on our way up north last weekend. I bought some at an antique shop and some others from a guy who had a sign out by the road "marbles, bottles, insulators, lightning rod balls". I couldn't stop the car fast enough [:)]

My wife and I were on our way for a picnic lunch at Lake Michigan so I had to speed up the visit a bit. I could have spent all afternoon looking. I knew when my wife said "I'm going to the car" my time was limited.

The 5 popeyes are my favorites. The green core banded swirl is another I like. I got these 6 from the sign by the road guy.

Best regards. Paul
