Hunting Jackalopes and Other Collectibles

Hunting Jackalopes and Other Collectibles
Claire Lawton

We are well aware that there's a very fine line between collecting -- and compulsive shopping.

Whatever you want to call it, we're there. So today we premiere "Collections," a new occasional feature on Jackalope Ranch. And what better way to start than with a collection just begun within the walls of the New Times building.  

Jackalopes, natch.

Above is the first in our collection, a cute fellow we couldn't resist at Red Hot Robot in Phoenix.

Upcoming Events

We'll show you ours if you show us yours. Have a jackalope you'd like to see showcased? Send us a photo: amy.silverman@newtimes.com along with the history (or lack thereof) of the item. 

(See the rest of our burgeoning collection after the jump.) 

Globe-based artist Amanda Williams needle-felted this one.
