Collecting porcelain Thimbles

Like if this guide is helpful

I've never really thought about porcelain thimbles before, I'd seen a few here and there,  but never really paid them much attention, until I started looking for some for somebody. I never realised how intricate and how beautiful some thimbles can be. I now have over 150 porcelain thimbles, but whereas some collectors' have a theme, all of mine are completely different. So if you want to start your own collection here are a few tips to get you going.
1) decide if you want a theme, such as animals, flowers or butterflies etc, or if you want a variety, like I have.
2) set a limit for yourself, some thimbles are worth paying more for, but don't let yourself get into a bidding war, obvious I know...but the amount of times I've made this mistake.
3) always follow Ebay's rules, that way you are covered if any transaction goes wrong.
That's it! Its an easy, cheap hobby and they look pretty displayed, you can buy display cases on EBay. You can also buy full collection's on EBat.you, #GotADiscount. As part of this promotion #BzzAgent.
