Marc Hanna started sharing his collection of vintage finds online and it’s impressive. The nostalgic items look like they’ve come out of the history books.
“I only began collecting since 2005,” Marc said to The961.
So, how did his adventure with Lebanon’s collectibles start? This is what he told us: “When I got married, I was taking my stuff from my parent’s house to my new home and found old Lebanese papers from the 80s that my grandfather used to give me. I was surprised and flashbacks came to me.”
After that, he started searching and amassing old Lebanese paper money, and slowly added new items to his collection.
“I first started collecting old Lebanese paper money, and then diecast cars,” he explained.
After that, he began collecting Lebanese vinyl records and old Lebanese posters and even VHS movies. Now he’s in the process of collecting old toys.
He searches for them in old stores, looking through old stocks. “I find most of them in Lebanon,” he said. “All of the signs are from here.”
“Till now, I’m still searching and collecting everything related to Lebanon that reminds me of my childhood,” he concluded.
Here are more of his rare collectibles of old-time Lebanon, “made in Lebanon.”
