2016 Airsickness Bag Collection Update

My better half says I collect too many things. I have no idea why she’d think that.

Here’s a snap of airsickness bags I’ve accumulated over the past couple years that I finally got around to organizing when sorting through a few boxes of paper potpourri this morning. It’s especially heavy on Adria (Slovenia’s national carrier) and Turkish Airlines, but a few other somewhat “exotic” additions slipped in — exotic to me anyway.

I always get a kick out of out-of-the-ordinary usage of quotation marks. They appear especially ludicrous on motion sickness bags.

“For motion discomfort and baby diaper disposal”. Yeah, like, you know, “Nudge nudge, wink wink.”

Now I just have to find the bulk of my collection so these parts can finally be joined and a better accounting made. That’ll be awhile, thus this year-end partial inventory.

Consider this an invitation to any other barf bag collectors out there who are looking to trade; my dupe stock is obvious from the photo below. But remember: you must use real stamps on the packages we trade because I collect those too.

Barf bag collection trade stock (more or less).

And again, to the barf bag-curious: check out the Air Sickness Bag Virtual Museum curated by motion sickness bag King Steven J. Silberberg whose collection now includes 2,859 pieces. I bet his better half is unapologetically proud.

      Does that mean you want to trade? 😉

        No. I have the collecting thing, but escaped this particular mania (manium?)

          Manium? Thinking about that hurts my cranium.

      Thanks – I appreciate that. 🙂

    Oh I love it.
    I used to get plane sick real bad years ago.
    I’m still fearful of flying, but thankfully I don’t get sick anymore.

    Well this is something I’d never thought of collecting…

      Ha ha. You’re not the only one.

      I’ve got a few even more interesting ones. Stored, somewhere. 🙂
