Video: Idaho Woman's Massive Nutcracker Collection



An Idaho woman boasts at having the world's second largest nutcracker collection... seriously.

Spokane, Wash.-based KREM-TV reports CJ Davis, of Hayden Lake, has accumulated nearly 3,000 nutcrackers—some mantle pieces, others life-sized—from all parts of the globe, including Australia, Italy and Russia.

The value of the collection? Davis has never had it appraised, but she said one of her nutcrackers comes from an artist whose other pieces have sold for more than $3,000.

For the record, the largest nutcracker collection in the world isn't terribly far away. It sits in the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum near Wenatchee, Wash.
