News-Antique.com - Aug 24,2007 - IOLA, Wis. (Aug. 24, 2007) — An Arkansas collector of Lenox turtles has won $500 from Collect.com in the Collect 500 contest.
Susan Navidad of Little Rock, Ark., was one of hundreds of collectors who participated in the contest by visiting www.collect.com and posting in the site’s forums an essay on what collectibles she would buy with $500.
“If I had $500 to spend on collectibles, I would spend it all on Lenox turtles!” Navidad wrote. “I have 15 pet turtles, mostly box turtles and one yellow-bellied slider. I rescued most from the road; two had been hit by cars and are fully recovered. To commemorate my love for my rescued pets, I would purchase a variety of collectible Lenox turtles.”
