I bought my first china thimble in 1982 and now have 900+.  I buy one from every place I go and have been known to return from holidays with a dozen or more.  Apart from place names, I have thimbles of Royalty, Advertisements, Nursery Rhymes, Owls, My name, television characters etc.   James is continually making racks for them for my kitchen wall.  The four larger ones hold 120 each and he has since added smaller racks to them as my collection has increased.  I plan to photograph my thimbles in sets for my website and you can see some of the first groups already.
