My kids collect every thing and any thing.
Hubby collects computers and MM's stuff.

I used to be a massive collector of Gone with the Wind merchandise, back in high school. I don't know how I came up with the $$ for some of the stuff, as some were antiques! My collection was regulated to the basement when we moved, so there's about $3,000 worth of GWTW memorabillia sitting in a musty basement.

Currently, it's postcards, Hello Kitty, and rock star relics, hehe.

I just recently saw the beautiful above mentioned collection.

I don't really collect anything. I am collecting those stupid quarters with the states on them. I have all of them so far except Indiana. A nerd am I.

He does not play croquet, nor has he ever played croquet. Aaahhh, irrationally obsessive packrats. Gotta love 'em.

heh heh, my dad has some time magazines from ... geez, i dunno, the 70s and 80s. He's also got every issue of that Car and Auto magazine from the 70s till now. Its kinda sad. He's also got a massive collection of stamps and coins. He used to like to lurk Ebay, but my mom made him stop, lol, cos he was buying too much stuff!!

typo alert!!!

I collected stamps for about the first 14 years of my life, than had a big break.I have only just back into it recently and am enjoying it immensely. They areally tell a story. I was in the post office on August 8th 2oo2.A dual release between Thailand and Australia became available that day. It is a waterlilly series. Waterlillies are very special to me. I look forward to buying them this week

I have collected every article that has appeared about my hub's bands since he got back into playing bass. And bits and pieces about other friends bands. It is quite an archive, I treasure it, others are delighted when they see a long forgotten article. A lot of the newspaper articles are very yellow nowI wish I had taken more care witht the storage.

I have a small collection(well it's growing) of animal figurines, my menagerie.
I love old china. I found a blue striped tea cup and saucer at a lawn sale years ago from Carrigaline Pottery in Co.Cork. Perfect condition $1 I recently found the matching milk jug, a bargain 50c. In another 10 years I may find the sugar bowl and have the set. I used to go to garage/lawn sales a lot when we were getting started, there is/was some treasure to be found. My 'friend and I called it "garage sailing" bit of yacht fantasy going on there I think. We had some laughs I can tell you.

So yes down right bower bird, I am, particularly attracted to blue things,just as real bower birds are
I collect stories too, you may have noticed
I definitely collect music and videos by musicians I love.

My kids got into basket ball cards one year spent a small fortune. I told them, "kiddie gambling" but then later they sprung me. They found my Elvis cards in my guitar case. That was a laugh.But I had only spent $2, but did they listen to that argument ? oh no
short answer...I place way too much sentimental value in objects, I love old things. I am on the verge of a big rationalisation, a cull....soon

I collect:

-Star Trek autographs (the ones I actually get in person at the conventions, not the kind you can buy anywhere...half of my living room wall is covered with autographed Star Trek photos )

-Matchbooks (I got this habbit from my mom...she always collects matchbooks from restaurants we'd go to, and now I do too)

-Postage Stamps

-Business Cards

-Foreign Money

-Ticket Stubs (I have ticket stubs from almost every concert I've been too, and movie I've seen (except the ones I forget and leave in my pocket when laundry time comes ) and places I've been)...as a matter of fact, the other day I was cleaning my apartment, and found my ticket stub from when I went to the very top outside on the roof of the World Trade Center in 1999. It says "Top of the World" on it

Now that I think of it, really just U2 boots. And it's not all that impressive...

I used to do stamps... but lost interest when I got older.

I always had a collector mentality. When I was younger I collected candy wrappers, badges (nearly 600, pity I had to leave them back in Russia), cards. Some of my less conventional collections included the notebook where I would write my night dreams, and another where I collected personal names from around the world.

Now I mostly collect CDs, music & movies mags, concert tickets and books on photography.

Aside from cds and U2 stuff...

My mom collects spoons from different places, but says she'll eventually give them to me.

I collect Star Wars things (toys, mugs, videos, etc.) and action figures. There's a big crossover between the two.
