You may ask," What is a Yooper"?  A true Yooper is a person who was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, commonly referred to as the U.P. of Michigan. Today a Yooper is considered to be any person who lives in the U.P. The southern border of the U.P. lies along the Wisconsin state line and northern shores of Lake Michigan.  The northern border lies along the southern shores of Lake Superior.  We are connected to the more populous Lower Peninsula of Michigan by the mighty Mackinac Bridge.  People below this bridge are often called "Trolls" by the Yoopers.  Many people up here feel that the state should look more like this blank business card of a U.P. business whose information I have removed to "protect" him from the Trolls!   Click here for da Yooper Creation Story, it is neat.


This site is all about my passion for collecting. Here you'll find information about my collectibles, the reasons I became a collector, and photos of items I've acquired. Some of the items may be available for you to buy or trade for your own collection.

If you are looking for something in particular, feel free to ask. Also, let me know if you have items to sell or trade.

I'll be updating this site frequently as I add to my collection, so check back often!
