    some of my Jabos

    hi i'm new here but i really like collecting marbles. started in 1991 mostly for wrist rocket ammo. but luckily i realized what a mistake i was making and nowdays when i have marbles i don't want i give them to my grandkids or the neighbors kids

    i was bummed out when i heard about Jabo they're my favorite with mega a close 2nd.
    anyway here's some Jabos i bought in about 2001 from Lost Your Marbles, Dublin, Ohio.
    they were great people to purchase from, Anyone know if they're still in business?

    Pretty!

    Is "Lost your Marbles" still in business? I don't remember hearing anyone selling under that name. That doesn't mean they aren't. Maybe someone else will know for sure. I'm mostly posting just to say hi and welcome.

    Are you anywhere near Silverton Or.? I collect a lot of Jabo's as well as vintage and contemporary marbles. I've been to the Jabo facility as well and worked on one of the marble runs there on 8/7/11.

    Mike Warnelis is the guy behind the Lost Your Marbles items and is still around. You can find him selling his items directly on ebay every now and then. His boxes are frequently available for resale on ebay by others. He was definitely a JABO visionary.

    Here are some nice classic runs with a special confetti given to me by Dale Simmons.



    For any of you hippies out there, check out the tie-dye
