I have a real 'thing' about snow globes. I'm looking for a beautiful one this year, not more than about £50 to add to my collection. I like village scenes/trees. Has anybody seen any nice ones please?

Not a scene one but I hugely coveted the John Lewis "The Snowman" globe. Wooden base, really heavy though. It didn't have the batteries on the display one though.

(I have a really ancient M&S one, before he got The Snowdog)

M&S have quite a few nice ones £20 or less. I've not seen many this year other than in an independent garden centre.

Not for a grown up 'heirloom' snowglobe but I love this one that I have just bought for my kids. Much nice in real life than on web.

I'm so pleased to see other people yearn for the perfect snow globe too, my grownup children think I am most odd! Thank you for your suggestions. I have a Thomas Kinkade Christmas tree/train which is lovely but huge, but hasn't satisfied my search for a globe..

Update on my snow globe quest - just bought two really lovely ones from TK Maxx this afternoon. Worth a look if you are a collector!

I tried to upload a photo but failed! They are all white scenes and some all silver. I do like the Labrador one - may see if I can get someone to buy this for me for Christmas.
