Talk about your collections here and why you collect them.

I like Soviet medals.

Guess your right, that is more like moss.  Either way we do like to shake it baby.

Guitars.  I lost count of how many I have.  25 or so?
Teddy bears and other little friends.  100+
CDs.  2000+
Tiki bartifacts.  I have a serious tiki bar in my den.
Kitchenware.  I can go to Williams-Sonoma or Sur La Table and find nothing I need or want.  I have a professional quality kitchen and I'm not afraid to use it.
Shoes.  50+ pairs.  My wife and I wear the same size.
Tools.  I have a garage full.  My contractor usually borrows them when he works here.
Concert ticket stubs.  I have 1000 or so from the last 30 years.

I collect stuffed animals. They're all in/on my bed, so it's a good thing I'm 4' 10", or I wouldn't fit in, I've probably got 200+.

Magic the Gathering cards. In a way, at least. I'm not going out of my way to get every single card there is (I'd be in broke and in debt if I did that). But if I have just one piece of some rare/mythic rare, I'm not trading it away unless I get something I REALLY want in return fetch lands.

I'm am getting into collecting "Run to Cadence" CD's, and King Endymion (Sailor Moon) stuff.




Guitars.  I lost count of how many I have.  25 or so?
Teddy bears and other little friends.  100+
CDs.  2000+
Tiki bartifacts.  I have a serious tiki bar in my den.

Shoes.  50+ pairs.  My wife and I wear the same size.
Tools.  I have a garage full.  My contractor usually borrows them when he works here.
Concert ticket stubs.  I have 1000 or so from the last 30 years.

Just curious-are the concert ticket stubs all from concerts that you have went to, or is it a combination of that and buying some for a collection?  :)

Being somewhat of a collector/hoarder I can risk getting overwhelmed by my collections if I don't keep a handle on it.

I love elderly English bicycles and mostly prefer Hercules bicycles, but have others as well.

I collect bicycle licence plates and bicycle tyre repair kit tins.

I was into fantasy wargaming at one time and still have a huge High Elf army as well as a Goblin army.  Mostly metal OOP model figures because I prefer them to plastic.  I should really sell them all though because I don't seriously play anymore.

I did used to collect tinplate toys, - mostly railway/trainset.  I've been slowly selling off my collection though as I need the money.  I used to own large scale 'G' scale railway models too, but had to sell those when I first became ill and had lengthy problems with being able to get the Invalid's pension.  Sometimes I will still make the occasional large scale railway model by hand if the mood takes me, but I no longer buy any commercially made models.

Lego; - I got into Lego (and Lego clone sets) after I had a bad relapse with this illness I have.  It was a good way to get my hand/eye co-ordination and my brain working again.  I own thousands of Lego bricks and parts, - far too many really.  I build mostly railway related models (I come from a railway family so got the bug early).
I have fantasy wargaming armies composed of Lego and Megablok minifigs and Playmobil 'klickies' too which are fun and I much prefer them to my serious wargaming models.

Tools; I like tools, especially old tools.  I don't like working with power tools much so old handtools are something I really like.  I don't have anything like the tool collection I used to own when I was still a truck mechanic, but I have enough to do whatever I want to do out in my workshop.

I luv Legos!

I have the start of decent collection of sculptured chess pieces. But haven't obtained any in a while. I'm a photographer too, so one could say I collect photos (gotta do some purging on that soon tho)


oh! and well two desktops, a laptop, a chromebook, a netbook and a kindle fire (not mention the Surface 3 that I have from work) perhaps not a collection..maybe an obsession?

I do have an unintentional assortment of small boats and bicycles but that is one danger of having a barn :D  There is a fine line, for some of us, between collector and hoarding. >:-)
