Domino Effect

As I mentioned before, I have many collections. Some things, I just cannot pass up. The visual appeal of some items are just too enticing . :) One of the items, I love to find at yard sales, estate sales or shops are old domino games. I only like the old wood dominoes with the different designs carved in the backs and the painted dots. 
I even love the graphics on the old cardboard boxes, they are usually in bright red, black and white with appealing designs.

My all-time favorite box of dominoes is the 'carnival' box with the two clowns and the lady. I found this at a garage sale for only $1 and the dominoes are worn and beautiful. I am unsure of how old this set is but on the inside someone penciled their name and the year 1909. Love them.

I even have a set of Super-sized domino blocks that I got from a retired teacher at a garage sale. I almost screamed with happiness when I saw them... quite a dramatic response, I know. Then there are my mini dominoes, below. I love them all!


  1. This is a neat collection. I think the giant ones would be my favorites as well!

  2. Wow, 1909! What a treasure you found! They were obviously well loved by someone. I wonder what their story could be? What a fun thing to collect :)

  3. Amazing! Of course I'm drooling over that carnival box with the clowns...a great find indeed.
