    Does anyone else collect anything? The other day some guy made fun of me because I collect buttons lol. I also collect rare/old copies of books and movie memrobilia. And I don't try to collect them but I realized that I have tons of blankets.

    I'm a real pack-rat, verging on hoarder - some things have to be saved from the masses.

    i used to collect comic books and action figures, but eventually, i deemed it financially unnecessary, LOL. space/storage was an issue too.

    I used to hoard so much shit. Then I went through a horrible 2-4 year period of my life where I moved around 6 times. When you have to physically pack, carry, move and store shit you never actually use or do anything with except pack, ship and store it, and you have to do this multiple, multiple times, you very quickly get over the need to hold on to it.

    I hate to say this but I to collect stuff too. You all will laugh at me when I say what I collect: stuffed animals, die-cast cars and trucks, Jeff Godron things, John Deere things. Yes you can laugh at me.

    My "collections" are functional, not just for the sake of collecting.


    That's what they all say in the beginning...

    I collected comic books for a while when I was younger, but never really got into it.

    Now I just collect broken hearts.

    vintage electronics
    cameras
    antiques/vintage furniture
    1:18 scale diecast cars
    license plates (legally)
    hotel room key cards
    vinyl (& 78s)

    In fact, i'm moving back into a solo living situation this fall (been living with a roommate) and I have no living room furniture. Planning on doing the whole room in Mid-Century Modern if I can icon_biggrin.gif
