I collect vintage/classic cameras, and general antiques and coins, pretty much I go around to garage salls and flea markets to find the stuff cheap, the stuff that the people selling dont know the value of :D


I do that too - you can find some very old and truly amazing things. I also like buying damaged things and restore them - it started as a hobby and turned into a collection.

I have about 1500 books and keep buying.

I have a large collection of free product samples I've ordered online or found in magazines, and I also collect cat related products. I have toy cats, a hat with cat ears on it, a cat flashlight, a few books about cats and I collect pictures of cats. I also collect information about different breeds of cat. My cat product collection grows at a relatively slow rate because some of the things I want to buy are fairly expensive, but my collection of free product samples is growing at what my mother refers to as "an alarming rate." :lol:

Once every week, I like to get my collection of things out of the box and just sit there for an hour or two touching and smelling the products I've collected. I don't tend to chew on things much these days because some of the things in my collection of free samples have chemicals in them that I really don't want to get in my mouth, but I remember when I was younger I used to love chewing on my plastic dinosaurs and I loved putting the stones in my mouth and feeling them with my tongue.

When I was younger I collected toy cars, plastic dinosaurs, shells and interesting stones. I had an enormous collection of shells and stones, but the shells ended up getting smashed when we moved house and I threw away all the stones on a whim when I was 11 years old. My earliest collection was a collection of conkers that I gathered when I was 5. I loved to tip them out on to the floor and arrange them in patterns, and I loved to count them. I had over 200 conkers. :D

Previously: toy cars, stamps, Horror Magazines, rare cameras, and rare coins.

Now just books on subjects that fascinate me.

Things I'd love to be able to collect: toy Ferraris, HP Lovecraft books, and sportscars bits.

(I still own a lovely mineral collection I got when I was 7 years old. By the way, anyone want to buy a Minox??)

My largest collection is of Tolkien items; dozens of books with different covers, random toys, posters, music, basicly anything that has something to do with Tolkien

Star Wars
foreign money
rocks, semi-precious stones-I still have a large case under my dresser
Random stuff that's pretty, shiny, or feels good.-I have a whole huge tube of random stuff I love

Books:I've filled all the shelves in my room and my parents gave me three shelves of my own in the computer room.
