Tif if you had them in a glass case so many other collectible figurines no one would think anything of it... b/c it is denim and jeans that are meant to be worn then I think some people have trouble with them as a collection.. I have been reading this post and have stayed away from making comments b/c I think truly this is a personal issue.. some people shop and collect alot.. is this too much? only that person can make that descision.. numbers of pairs may work for some people but they may never work for others.. this is a highly individual thing.. I believe that if your jean collection is hurting no one finacially or otherwise then it's not an addiction.. it's when compulsive shopping becomes a problem and effecting your life that it is a problem.. eveyone on this site is here b/c we like to shop for premium denim and based on other OT threads we like to shop alot. Are we so much more fortunate than other people out there.. probably. But while I may have a closet full of clothes.. that shouldn't be the judgement of me(or anyone else).. or how I give my time politically, clothing donations, monetary support , gifts for friends, volunteer time for chairity,, etc.. The biggest thing is this.. the only person you gotta love in this world is yourself and your family and the only person that opion matters in yourself ( and again maybe your family) IF you feel that you need to sell some jeans and your hubby supports you then do it.. and it sounds like you have started. I think the best suggestion was if they are new and you havent worn them in 2 months ( and that doesn't mean shipping and tailoring) then sell those.. and if there are pairs that you don't wear anymore due to size, or the way they fit , or you don't ike them as much then sell them.. If there are a special pair or two that fall into this catagory and you just can't part with them.. save them for your daughter.. If you truly love them and don;t want to sell them to get money for them you can always save em for a craft project.. I have seen curtains, shower curtains, and bedspreads out of the denim.. and while they might be the most expenive linens anyone has ever seen .. you would at least get to always look at them and enjoy them.. but seriously.. i am more then sure there are buyers here to buy the ones if and when you chose to depart with them ( don't forget I am a 29 hahaha) While your collection makes me super jealous.. and might not be the most practical .. what is excessive to one is not excessive to others.. and I don't think anyone on here should be sitting in judgement of another.. I am not saying anyone did this per se.. but I am saying that what works for one doesn't always work for another. This is not a one size fits all world
oh emma.. I know what you meant about your number.. and I think it that works for anyone then it is a great plan just like you said might not work for everyone.. But I think it's a smart plan to stick to if it works for whomever that may be
and I totally agree with you on that tif should sell her jeans when she is ready and not be rushed into selling any of them ...
and you are right as I said if someone feels they have a problem or it is effectiving the lives of those they love then yes it does become a problem and tif did indeed start this thread feeling this way..
now I want to know how to collect boyfriends LOL.. that is what I need to pick up next dont; ya think.. maybe I could have as many boyfriends as jeans.. ok that probably would not work but maybe a different one for each night of the week.. LOL.. only kidding.. but I loved that comment in emma;s post.. if I were collecting boyfriends I wouldnt be sitting around on any weeeknd nights lookin cute in my R&R that no one buy my kitty Riley sees.. hee hee
