Over the years I have started numerous collections. My pill box collection started when I received one as a gift. A perfect size to save and pack. I then decided to pick one up wherever I traveled. I always stopped at antique stores to look for another for my collection. There weren't a lot to choose from and in some places, I couldn't 'find any at all. Finding pill boxes was never a priority, and I didn't like to spend time combing dusty stores while on vacation. However, it was always fun to find one by happenstance.
There are about seven 7 countries represented here. I keep all the boxes in a tin that held buttons from another of my collections. As I've gotten older, I've eased up on collecting. No room, no interest, and no money to spare on unnecessary stuff! Except plants of course, but I've even cut back new ones as there isn't any more space left in my small garden.
