weekend snapshot # 11

Posted by Kero at Saturday, July 19, 2008


We headed to Wafi City over the weekend to see the exhibit called The Collectors. There on display were collections of rosaries, antiques, Do-Not-Disturb signs, rare photos of the Maktoum Family but what caught our attention most are the following display.


These snowglobes belong to Queen Snovari, a 2007 Guinness World
Records Holder for having the largest collection of mini glass
snowglobes with over 18,888 pieces.



The collector is Frank Develva, and is awarded for having the largest
bookmark collections in London with about 17,000 pieces.
Some of these dates back as early as the 1800s.


Have a great week ahead and thank you for the visit. Till next weekend!!!

10 sweets for Kero:

Great Photos! The reflection of the outside world in the first photo of items under a window really enhances the whole
idea!
Thank you for sharing these.
