I love to collect things. In my young twenties I used to collect shot glasses, but as I get older my tastes have certainly changed. For Christmas one year my parents bout me a lovely Jim Shore Angel figurine, and I've been hooked on collecting them ever since.
These figurines have a very "country" theme. All figurines look hand carved from wood and hand painted in a quilt patch like design. But in fact these figurines are actually made of durable resin. The colors are vibrant and interesting.
The Jim Shore collections covers many themes including Christmas, Halloween, Forth of July, Mother Goose, Disney and an extensive angel and Christian collection. I love these figurines and have collected many, although I find it difficult to find the Halloween figurines.
I find that the price range for these figurines is very reasonable. Smaller pieces are around $20 where larger pieces can run you $50 and up. You can buy these figurines from several different websites and gift shop stores. The Hallmark stores carry quite a few of these figurines but they seem to charge more than anyone else. Jim Shore figurines make a perfect gift for just about anyone
