Being that I live on an Island. We are surrounded by beautiful rocks, gems, agates and just plain cool rocks. My Granddaughter, myself and my Sister's Granddaughter are always out on the beaches collecting rocks or cool pieces of drift wood to creat things.

Be careful about collecting the rocks. I just found out in some places it's taboo and can cause curses. I know that sounds strange but we took some rocks from Hawaii and ever since then my husband (who collects them) has had nothing but bad stuff happen to him. We are gong to send the rocks back as soon as we can!

Howaa (thank-you) CATJANE. We are quite careful about the kinds of rocks that we do collect. For example if it5 does look actually like a artifact we will leave well enough alone. Our ancestors are from these Islands that are called Haida Gwaii aka Queen Charlotte Islands. We are very respectful about such things. Once again thanks for the friendsly advice. Janice

After my first son was born, I started collecting baseball cards. I have literally 1000s and 1000s of them. Now that they are older I quit. Since I have gotten in NASCAR, I collect NASCAR stuff of my favorite driver, which would be Jeff Gordon.

I have about 1,000 Beanie Babies. I no longer buy them cuz the fad is gone. They are all in plastic bags in the bottom of a closet and I hav'nt looked at them in years. I wonder if I have any that are worth anything?

I'm sure the beanie babies are worth something. Do some research online. Type in "Beanie babies" somethng should come up that will help you.

I collect Coca Cola stuff. My kitchen is almost entirely coca cola. I like the polar bears and santas the most. I also have a large media collection. My husband has a Dale Jr. (Nascar) collection.
