The explosive magnetic field has become a trend . . . yes Fridge Magnets are doing it all over MyLot!! I give you a view of the top half of my fridge with most of my Oversea's magnets. Local and African continent ones are found on the bottom door, so that if they break my hubby doesnt have to take me on too far a journey to replace any. The rule is, is you break one of my magnets by being careless with the fridge door, you have to take me to the Port O'Call of the magnet and allow me to get a new one! Fair? I think that's fair! On all my travels I always bring four different types of the same place magnets, one for each of my children and one for me, the children get to choose first and I get left with the one they dont like the most. If I have a friend that has asked, then I bring for them as well.

You are beating me. I have only 4 on my fridge, that came with some food. I would not have thought that you could buy a magnet of the Venus de Milo or of Mona Lisa. If they continue this way the Louvre will sell soon garden gnomes.

I would love a Gnome from the Louvre - he he he - yes we got all of those from Paris but not inside the Louvre - I only got the Pink Marie Antoinette one at Versailles and a roll of printed toilet paper for fun!

@Inlemay *pushing a sigh of relief* They have nice reproductions of statues, but it is not cheap. I hope that the Louvre will never produce garden gnomes. Versailles has a particular legal status, and they have my blessing to sell whatever they want, as it helps to restore the buildings. You can even buy canned boxes of vegetables from the gardens.

@topffer I think Versailles is the most magnificent planned garden I have ever laid eyes on, I walked half, then did the other half on and off of a golf cart and then still went the next day to do it all again and see the Palace inside as well

It would be lovely for you to show them, I dont think you have ever shared a photo for us - except when you go for a walk with your dog.

when someone that has traveled to India brings me one - are they readily available in India. I had a friend go there a few months ago, but he didnt bring me one.

It looks as though you will need a larger fridge before long. Even the souvenir shops in the holiday resorts do not have such a large stock of fridge magnets. Did you have to reinforce the hinges on the fridge to support the weight?

Wow, what a collection. I hate cleaning mine. They get sticky and dusty. What do you clean yours with ?

that's quite a collection of magnets and I like your theory that if one gets broken you have to revisit that place to replace it
