Collectors: Joke’s snowglobe collection

People

They have an untamable passion for gathering as many quirky items as possible: collectors. Meet Joke. She’s an avid snowglobe collector and is currently showcasing some of her favorite pieces in the glass case in Werkplaats.

Joke calls herself ‘the reverse Marie Kondo’, referring to the Japanese tidy-guru of the Netflix show ‘Tidying up with Marie Kondo’. Which means Joke does the opposite of tidying. She keeps everything. And her favorite thing to keep: snow globes.

“It all started 8 years ago when someone gave me a book about snowglobes (which you can see in the back of the middle shelf). From there on I just started looking our for them everywhere. I also get a lot of globes, because everybody knows I collect them now”, says Joke. She even has a snowglobe with her own face on it in her collection. It’s not her favorite one though: “The lawnower globe is my favorite because its different and so funny.”

Besides this impressive snowglobe collection, she has many others. Flip-books, pop-up books and ‘kitch made of shells’ to name a few. So who knows, we might be seeing another one of her collections in Werkplaats soon. For now, enjoy the globes!

Volkshotel is looking for collectors. Those with a passion for quirky items. To show off their special collections and to tell the special stories behind it. Happen to know one? Let us know at hello@volkshotel.nl.
