Did you know?
In October 2006, Carol McFadden of Oil City, Pennsylvania was declared by Guinness World Records to have the largest collection of earrings. How many did she have? A whopping 37,706 different pairs!
The Earring Lady – as she is understandably known – began collecting them in 1952 at the age of twelve and says she has worn each pair at least once. But she was forced to auction off the bulk of her collection in 1994 when she moved. Why? Her collection simply could not fit into her new smaller house!
