YOU ARE A WOMAN AFTER MY OWN HEART... I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING SKUNK
ITEMS SINCE 1970 AND FOR THE PAST
EIGHT YEARS HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A DATA BASE FOR
INVENTORY -- WITH NO SUCCESS. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I WOULD LOVE TO COMMUNE WITH YOU.

> I too put semi like items together just as you have mentioned but then I

>etc. I don't number every single item (for instance tee shirts do not
>carry a number). I have close to 2000 different items (duplicates do not
>receive a number but are listed in the data base). When I number the item
>I also write a description, the date I got it, who gave it to me or where
>it came from (states or countries) and how much it cost at purchase if I
>have that information. I do not have any plush or toys in the collection
>because there were too many, too big, and not even skunk like at times. So
>the ones that are around are toys for children to play with. I do not
>number post cards, greeting cards, wrapping paper, etc.
>I don't know if that helps you but I feel that I know each piece so well
>that I could find almost immediately - they are all on display in my home
>in shadow boxes, curio cabinets. walls, etc.
