The main thing I collect is shot glasses so everywhere I go I buy a shot glass and add that to other random ones-- lots of Detroit Red Wings, one from the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, one my dad got me from the Hard Rock Cafe in Pattaya, Malaysia [?] and one from the WWF restaurant in Times Square. [I didn't say I had to buy them in cool places]. I think I have about 50 now.

I'm also collecting the state quarters as well-- didn't realize Indiana was out yet. Must....find....Indiana....quarter.

i just started my collection of thimbles. i have a tinker bell, a dolphin, and a penguin. I just started so it's not all big (yet!). I always liked to collect things, i have some precious moments stuff, spoon collection, and small bells, but i wanted some thing that was not going to take a whole lot of room and not as popular. Although there are some thimble collectors, it's not as common as everything else. I like the fact that they have really cute designs and/or figures on top of a thimble.

well I obviously like collecting

'cause I'm back..
I just know that now when i am at an auction./market/sale, I'll be thinking...
hmmm
thimbles- jala would like those
shot glasses - sharky would like those
spoon's_dizzy's mom would like those
etc
etc...you get my drift

I have one of those minds that makes lists, especiallly at 3 am in the morning...arrgggghhh!!!!
it does pay off at times.
I take great joy in finding some affordable treasure, that I know a friend would like, some missing piece of a dinner set that they haven't ben able to find, a mint condition ACDC record, books written in Finnish etc. I love unearthing "treasure"...one man's trash another man's treasure.


So yep, collecting..

th it

Things I collect (or constantly find myself buying):

--Concert tickets
--CDs
--Magazines with Madonna on the cover (reason enough for me to buy even the crappiest fashion magazines, if it has beautiful pictures of Mrs. Ritchie in fab clothes, I'm in)
--Barbies (the limited edition, collectible ones, they are currently housed in three bins because I have yet to find my own place with a proper display area)
--Silver bracelets (in my opinion a person can never, ever have too many silver bracelets)

On the U2 side I am trying to get as many different versions of "Stay" as possible. I'm particularly fond of the live versions because Bono changes the lyrics almost every time.

Marty -- RE the "Numb" remix you're looking for, have you tried eil.com? I got the LP single of WOWY with "Luminous Times" and "Walk to Water." It is so beautiful I almost don't want to play it! The cool thing about eil.com is you can put in requests for out of stock items and they will look for those items indefinitely.

I was more thinkinh inanimate objects

I have been doing it for so long I kind of forgot they would be considered collections....but they are.
Cactus
Palm Trees
Bromeliads

It has been a very long dry spell on the east coast of australia, but even in those harsh conditions the bromeliads endure and are just starting their magnificent, weird and wonderful, spring display. I was just thinking what terrific plants they are.

And sub-tropical fruit trees. This past year has been the first time my japoticaba trees have fruited. Unique, delicious Brasilian rainforest trees And I am waiting for the black sapote to fruit(I'm told they taste like chocolate) and the mangosteen .
I sometimes think about my palm trees, that I bougth them here in the back of my car, there is no way they'd fit now, huge things....bit like my kids
see, back again...I'm a bowerbird


oooohhh and I noticed buds on the cliveas yesterday(despite my harsh division methos that i thought may have killed them)........spring has sprung!!!YAY

I used to collect comics too. But that was about ten years ago. Still have my 8 boxes. Hope they'll worth something.
