I didn't realise until recently that a collection of things depicting fuchsias is Fuchsia Lore. I have collected fuchsia related items manly linen and china spasmodically for many years but in September 2005 I visited Adelaide and was taken on drive to visit several members of the Australian Fuchsia Society. I was amazed to see the range of items of Fuchsia Lore, one member had collected. I came back after a tour of Barossa and Riverlands of SA with several additions to my small collection. Since then a trawl of the local Antique shops uncovered more, and THEN my friend indoctrinated me into EBay. Well I have had parcels from several countries and my newly acquired glass display case is nearly full. So I am trying to decide where else I can display items. I also have several "crafty" friends who have made me a range of fuchsia craft items in a range of materials as well as decorating items.
Another trip to SA and Vict. necessitated 2 more cases in March 2008 to house my collection.
Pictures of part of my collection in the case.
Wanted more fuchsia lore items - I have some to exchange.
