I appreciate your story. It’s funny how each person can start collecting in a completely different way. My husband started our collection by bringing home a bell he bought at a garage sale and telling me it was for my collection. For a long time we were in denial who’s collection it really was. Each time we were asked we would say it belonged to the other. As time went on we got so we really enjoyed looking for bells we did not have. Any time we went on a vacation we would look for bells in the local antique or second hand store. We have finally embraced our addiction.
The propriator of the antique store that we frequent sees us and points and says ding-a-lings. It’s all in good fun.

May your bells ring in joy and your clangers never fall out! 😛
