Ernie Wroe's Devonmoor molded cottage collection now includes all of the 14 on a sales list.
Ernie tells of his experience in collecting these cottages
As I recall, it all came about at the Pennsylvania Convention. I thought that I was coming as a chauffeur, an observer and a newbie. I learned early that Torquay pottery, N.A.T.S. and the camaraderie hold a magnetic attraction.
spied a couple of Devonmoor miniature cottages at the sales mall. Now I
thought these were just what a novice should purchase-small price tag and
easy to pack. All of a sudden, I was hooked! Members were shaking my hand
and congratulating me on now being a Torquay collector.
