She had mail ordered the ornament and when she was making it was when she was struck with her passion for the collecting, this was in 1982. Marcy has help with her current husband Michael Glass and his daughter Kelly Glass(her step daughter)it takes all 3 of them one full week at 40 hours each to put up the different managers.
