This site is maintained by Michael Muntner. Please visit it often. If this is your first visit, you may want to take a short tour of some of Michael's favorite snow domes. Also, he has lots of snow domes for sale--plastic domes as well as old glass ones. Of course, Michael is always interested in adding to his collection. So if you have domes to sell or trade, send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LET'S TAKE A TOUR
Michael has a collection of over 6,000 snow domes, water globes and, as they say in Britain, snow storms. Perhaps you'd like to see some of them. But like many collectors, you might like certain types of snow domes more than others. Some are relatively new (dating from the mid 60's) and are plastic souvenirs of tourist sites and others are older glass souvenir water globes. Snow domes also advertise products and there are yet others that are just funky. Take a look.
Michael is always on the lookout for more snow domes--going to flea markets and antique shows, visiting ebay, relying upon friends and relatives. He continues to add to his collection. Each one carries a unique memory of where and when is was obtained. Here are some. Michael hopes you enjoy them as much as he does and would enjoy hearing from you.
Do you have some snow domes to sell? If you are a collector and would like to trade, he probably has a few old, rare plastic and glass snow domes set aside (that are not for sale) just for trading purposes. What's he looking for? Well just about anything he doesn't already have. Does that help? Well maybe his list of Top Wants would. If you have just one or an entire collection for trade or sale, let him know. For how, see the bottom of this page.
SNOW DOMES FOR SALE
Snow domes are getting harder to find all the time. What once was a 'hot' souvenir item has become less appealing to today's fast paced tourist--who wants to carry around a bag of water (the weight of snow domes will mount up). As tourist traps have reduced costs, they increasingly rely upon standard interiors in the snow domes that have little relation to the locale they are intended to represent. Also, snow domes freeze. They break when dropped. Finding them at garage, yard or tag sales is tougher as the generations who may have collected them in the 1960's have already emptied their basements.
Perhaps the best place to find the older domes is from a collector who is re-sizing his or her collection or just making room for new additions. Fortunately for you, Michael has lots of snow domes for sale. To make looking at the selection a little easier, they are organized into categories. The plastic domes, yes those 'cheesy' things you may still see in airports, are very coveted by collectors--especially when they are from exotic locales, obscure tourist traps and roadside attractions that have simply gone out of business.
Over the past months, Michael has sold so many snow domes that the lists of snow domes for sale are no longer up-to-date. So, they have been sent on vacation (i.e., being revised). Keep checking.
Michael is always looking to add to his collection. He will either trade snow domes for ones he doesn't have or will buy them. He probably has a few old, rare plastic and glass snow domes set aside (that are not for sale) just for trading purposes. What's he looking for? Well just about anything he doesn't already have.
