F = Fossil
Fossil is my favourite brand and I have a little bit of an obsession with their watch tins, which I first discovered when I was a design student. I also have a few bags, purses and watches.
The tins are what I like most about Fossil though. They are sooo gorgeous I have started to collect them. My dream job would be to design tins for Fossil (If any Fossil people are reading, please give me a job!). I would design something simple like this:
I got my first Fossil tin when I was in LA a couple of years ago. I asked the shop assistant if I could buy a tin and he said I could pick one without making a purchase. I was so excited! I pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. I went onto buy my first Fossil watch in San Francisco just so I could have another tin. My friend then gave me one she had and didn’t want, and I blagged another one at christmas from the London store. I got a new Fossil watch for my birthday recently so I got my 5th tin.
Here is my new Fossil watch and my 5 beautiful tins, lined up, on display in my living room:
You may think me a little sad for getting so excited about what is basically just a tin? but I just love the designs and how they are all sooo different. It’s not as sad as say train-spotting or stamp collecting is it? (I actually quite like some stamp designs too!). In the Fossil stores, they have them lined up on display too, I took a photo in the London shop:
Don’t you agree they look beautiful?
If you have any Fossil tins you don’t want, please let me know.....
Do you have any weird and wonderful collections or obsessions?
