New member, old collector!

Postby skykitty » Wed Feb 01, 2017 5:04 pm

Hi there! I'm super excited to have found this community while scouring the internet for all things vintage LPS.

My current status: Seller's Remorse! Littlest Pet Shops were my #1 favorite toy as a kid in the 90s, I had about 60 sets total, the charm bracelets, mail order pets, jewelry pets etc. At age 20, I sold them all except for a couple of favorites. Can anyone guess where I'm finding myself at age 30? RE-BUYING THEM ALL. :lol:

Did anyone else go through this? I sold them when I was a poor college student, not yet yearning for my childhood. Now I feel like I'm having some sort of quarter (1/3?) life crisis and I must have them all back for nostalgia purposes :)

I sold a lot of mine to a girl named Tina in Australia in 2007. It seems like the collector group is a pretty small core group, any chance you're here?

Well, that's me! Looking forward to having people to share the hobby with, thanks for having me.

Welcome to the forum!! Your post made me laugh because I guess we can all relate to doing regrettable things in our early 20's!! Well look at the bright side. At least you're in a place in life right now where you can start collecting and now you'll really enjoy and appreciate what you get! This is a great forum and I think you'll find it very helpful!

Welcome to the forum and back to the world of LPS. My parents gave away my toys as I got older. I started re-collecting again about 5 years ago all of the ones I had and always wanted. My collection is mostly complete. Its amazing how much nostalgia you get from these little toys. :D

Welcome to the forum! :) I sold two sets when I was younger because at the time I felt that they didn't belong with the rest of my collection :( I have since re-bought them, fairly recently! The quest is a fun one though frustrating at time! :lol:
