The only thing I collect at the moment is the spare buttons that come with new outfits. It was for practical purposes at first (in case I needed them) but now I enjoy having the collection.

Coke points, although I will probably cash them in for the KitchenAid mixer next time they have items in the 10,000 plus range. I've gotten a Dremel and a couple of DVDs from them in the past

Mopeds. Some to keep, some to sell, all to ride, never have less than 2 or more than 5

Reel to reel tape recorders, currently I have 4

Random pieces of scrap metal on the roadside, I use them for welding

Music equipment; 1 acoustic guitar, 5 electrics, 2 basses, a drum kit

Old maps

wheat back pennies

a console stereo

I collected candles for a while then quit

USB cables

broken cell phones

Beatles books and records

Stickers, buttons and patches; about a dozen Bettie Page ones floating around somewhere

Homies toys

ticket stubs

Solar garden lights

Birthday cards

show flyers from ex-bands

Thank-you gifts from clients. One of my most heartwarming tokens is a Napoleon Dynamite figure presented to me by the movie director

I always keep them when I find them. I spotted a pretty smooth 1917-s in the tip jar at one of my school's coffee stands. When I pointed it out, they gave it to me. I made sure to leave them a tip the next time I had cash.

So far, that's the oldest coin I've found in circulation.

pins and pinned buttons

I've collected them since I was very little.

Guitars - I have 12
I also have a violin, melodic a and digital piano
Digital music collection. I have over 6000 albums by 460 composers. The largest of the bunch is Franz Liszt with 104 albums. How Franz Liszt had the time to compose that much music seems inhuman to me.
Used to have a Star Wars card collection back in the day. Probably worth a lot now.
Also used to collect stamps and foreign coins.
Concert and movie tickets.
