World’s Biggest Marble Hunt

I have a new passion. Marble hunting and hiding. Have you been active with this? There is a Page and Group on Facebook called the World’s Biggest Marble Hunt. The page tells a bit about the hunt and gives some rules and guidelines. The Group is where folks around the world share their hunts.

I’ve been active for over a year looking for marbles in the different cities when we travel. The Oregon Coast had been pretty slow with hides. However, the past few months, quite a few people have gotten the bug and started buying hider marbles. They have to be a contemporary blown glass marble with a Glass Blower’s Name. If you search the site, I’d expect you’d be impressed with what folks hide.

I picked up a few marbles from Arizona from a place called Crazed Monkey Glass. I’ve been wandering around the coast finding a few of my favorite after work resting spots to hide a marble. Then a few location hint photos are snapped, and the clues are posted on Facebook. Want to see where I’ve been this week? These marbles have been found.   Cascade Head
