Anyone into Fridge Magnets?

Anybody else out there who is a refrigerator magnet nut case, besides me? About half way through our cruise travels I started picking these up. As years slid by I noticed that the quality of magnets gets more unique. Which makes it more fun.  For instance, a loaf of French Bread sticking out of a paper bag. Miniature bottles of wine, like one from Monaco. A vintage sailing ship inside a clam shell from Cartagena. A War 11 landing craft from Normandy. A Pinocchio from Italy. And so on.    If you are, don't replace your older ferrous steel fridge with a stainless one.

Oh I don't think the wife would allow that, lol. The only thing I collect anymore is golf ball markers from courses I play. None are bigger than a quarter and they all fit in my golf bag.

Yep... sadly it is often the thing I pick up as a memento of traveling. I have them on the side of the washer dryer but don't have a picture to post at the moment :( (boo hoo).

I am a magnet collector but now I put them on my A/C unit cover which is in my kitchen.  I still have plenty on both sides of my fridge.  I have some fun ones, too: 3-D Dutch girl, 3-D Caribbean seashells in a bottle, 3-D German  Cuckoo Clock, 3-D rack of miniature Italian wine bottles, 3-D spinning windmill from Amsterdam to name a few.  Also I have frames with my grand kids photos and a huge frame where I replace family photos from time to time.  Every time I take a cruise, I buy a ship magnet or ornament.  I even have neosporin on a magnet so just in case of an accident, I have it handy.  Other less unusual magnets are my TA's business card, my shopping list pad of paper, a calendar, canisters containing office supplies like paper clips, rubber bands, etc...sand local fire/police department numbers.  I also have magnetic clips that hold other important information that is not magnetized.
