Welcome to my flute figurine gallery!
Most came from jewelry stores or Hallmark stores, but some have been acquired at strange places, like truck stops.
My family likes to give them to me for my birthday and Christmas.
Collecting figurines is great fun. Start now by keeping your eye out for them when you are shopping.
It can be hard to find them, but just be vigilant. Hallmark stores and jewelry stores are likely spots, but you would be surprised where else they turn up.
I bought one at the Iowa State Fair a few summers back that was made out of bee's wax!
I like to display my flute players in themes--Disney flute players, animal flute players, angels, Santas, children, etc.
The safest way to keep your figurines displayed is in a curio cabinet. I am lucky enough to have three cherry wood curio cabinets that were handmade by my husband's grandfather in his wood shop. But even those are bulging.
That brings up the difficult part of collecting flute statues--keeping them safe so the flutes don't break off!
This has been an ongoing problem for me, and yes, I have several flutists who are now playing, um, piccolos, as it were.
I love all of them and hope you do, too! Take some time to browse the gallery and come back again to see what's new--I keep getting more!
The bad news is both cabinets are bursting at the seams! Isn't that the way it goes with collections!
Don't let your collection of figurines get dusty! A feather duster is perfect for getting rid of dust, but gentle enough not to damage the piece.
Some figurines can be rinsed off with water and allowed to air dry.
If you are collecting something like flute figurines, you need to keep your eyes open for them everywhere. Sometimes I find a lot of them, but most of the time I don't.
They pop up in some very unusual places, though!
You might also like flute art in addition to figurines. They liven up your studio or practice room.
