Then Puberty Struck. and i started to out grow my teenage passions as i reached my twentys i gave most of my Marilyn Collection to my Mum who not knowing the value of Such things sold them all for next to nothing at a car boot sale. But ive always retained a place in my heart for my first crush Marilyn and have now started to collect Original Monroe Magazines Again. which i would like to show in future i also collect many other things aswell like vintage prints/Postcards/and Books on the area i live in Ireland Which Is Westmeath. i dont know if anyone would be interested in seeing any of these or the tudor dolls if so let me know.
