I've been a McCoy collector since I was 8 years old and you could get a wall pocket for $4. Had to sell some back when my sons were smaller and budget was tight, but still a lot of pieces. I'm working on collecting all the fruit cookie jars and yellow butterfly line. It's slow going.
How long have you been collecting McCoy? I'm like you, mostly vases and planters, but I have a few hanging baskets, cookie jars, and wall pockets as well.
Still have a lot packed away in boxes, as Handsome Man and I are in Year 3 of the the 5-year plan. When we moved into the new house three years ago, we knew the kids would soon be moving out and we were waiting to do major arranging and basement finishing until then. Kids are gone and we're still figuring out what we want in the basement.
I can take a few more pictures tonight after work if you'll remind me.
How about you? Pictures? A new interest, or do you have lots of pieces already. I have a few mini vases, all the aqua color, but I don't have them out right now. I have the swan and the cornucopia mini vases, and it seems like there's one more piece that's not coming to mind right now.
I collect McCoy. I haven't bought any in awhile - I'll only buy it if I think the price is right. The last pieces I bought were two matching shell shaped dark green 40's vases for the mantle as they match a TV planter lamp I already had up there. My house plants are all potted in McCoy!
