I'm as eclectic as they come. Coin collecting (ancients and American) is my passion. However, I have a sizable collection of lead figures--fantasy and soldiers, collect military medals, wolf statues and elephant trinkets, I still have my sports collection I started as a kid (70-80), tea sets, and pocket watches. My wife has a pretty decent knife collection that I contribute to on occasion (probably at my peril...lol). She also collects antique kitchen gadgetry. I travel a lot, so I tend to pick up interesting things there as well but there isn't any rhyme or reason, only if I or my family might like.

I do not think I am collecting special or unusual things. I have collected fridge magnets from countries that I travelled to,stickers,stamps and recipes which are very common items that people collect.

I have a nice collection of fridge magnets myself; I must have one from just about worldwide now. Perhaps we can swap if interested.

I collect everything Barbie, to put it mildly. I have a huge collection of dolls, tins, jewelry, plates, kites, jewel boxes, watches, even socks--all Barbie.

Well, I don't collect anything. I don't really appreciate this job. You know, you must have a place to store the collected things, and then you must clean the collected stuff too. It takes a time, and it's not pleasant for me. So, I don't collect anything. But I do respect those who collect.

I collect "power stones" and special pebbles from beaches all around the country, Cherished Teddies, Winnie the Pooh ornaments, and anything that interests me really. I have a great collection of CDs for instance but I don't really regard them as a collector's item. Brightest Blessings.

I collect a couple things... I collect harmonicas, some other musical instruments (but not to the same extent), rocks, gemstones, and I think that's about it. Hopefully.
