Mary Ziebarth with some of her collection.
Rosewood resident Mary Ziebarth is quickly approaching the world record, in her quest to have the World’s Worst Coffee Cup Collection. Local Councillor David Pahlke explains that he all started out as a bit of a giggle really. Mary has been my ironing lady for well over 25 years and a nicer person simply doesn’t exist. About 10 years ago I started buying the odd coffee cup for her, and every so often would present her with one. I would comment and say – Here is another one for that terrible collection of yours. In 2006 I presented her with a Certificate recognising her efforts in collecting them. There are all sorts of different shapes and sizes and colours and styles based a criteria, that catches my eye when I’m shopping at Vinnies.
