The stuff of lives

“The ninth collectors show, ‘Tons More Things People Collect,’ opens today at the first-floor exhibit space on the south end of Crown Center. Among the samples of 112 collections you can find mousetraps, TV show lunchboxes, TV Guide covers, marble jewelry, vases from vintage cars and Mr. Clean stuff, brought in by a guy whose father wrote the jingle for the product. The first show was born when Krehbiel realized how many people she talked to collected something, and usually more than one something.”
