WOW i cant believe i would reach this point. I joined the forum about more than a year ago. I believe almost the same time as kronin did. I started collecting about around 2002 i believe. My fisrt pair was a mars ( traded to a friend here). Then found the juliets and loved it. My first two pairs were juliet ti clear which i won on ebay for 380 at that time and polished blue irids, both i still have btw. My addiction did not stopped there till i reached 14 pairs i believe of various x metals. Then the sad part happened i stopped at around 2009 so i missed out on the 24ks bummer. One day i got into a fight with somebody and that someone broke one of my pairs that was dearest to me 2012 i believe so. So i started browsing if anybody can fix my juliet. It was my ichiro polished frame with emeralds here is the pic. That's how I discovered this forum unfortunately my frame cant be fixed so it was passed on to a forum member for experimentation. I was a lurker at first but as time goes by I started to make deals with members and that got me going into collecting again. You can say that it got me going and ignited the fire into collecting once again. The rest is history. Current cabinet Some of the pieces i acquired. I have two more cases that needs filling that would be my 6 k post lol.
