One of my favorite collections is my wedding cake topper collection. I started collecting them while I was searching for a top for my own wedding cake. At the time, I thought it would be cool to use a vintage topper. After months of flea marketing I wound up using one that a friend (you know who you are!) had given me even though it wasn't vintage. My favorites are old bisque and and chalkware toppers. My collection consists of toppers from the 1920's - 1960's. I've found that the most challenging to find are the military ones with the groom in uniform. I only have 2 in my collection as they sometimes can be quite pricey. While out garage sale shopping I came across one on a table filled with junk where the groom was in a Navy uniform. I asked the dealer how much it was and she said "just take it!" Can't get much better than that! Too bad these little treasures aren't used on many cakes these days. Maybe they will make a comeback!
