Are you a Collector?

are your a collector? I'm crazy about paper bags, and I love it when I go shopping, cos that's the time you are able to get a lot of paper bags. Nowadays, I like to collect coin. In fact, I was just back from the flea market and I got about 6 coins all dated 1796-1880s. That's so satisfying. Would like to hear from you guys.

i collect cookie jars, cherished teddies (although that collection took a back seat to my cookie jars) and NC pottery (i have a very small collection of that). i think at last count i had ooh right around 50 something cookie jars. but im fussy with my cookie jars, either they have to be older hull or McCoys or newer ones that are marked, like the oreo ones, disney, M&M ones.. i collect them because i like them but i want them to go up in value for when my kids get older, that way when im gone they can sell them and get something out of them.

I collect match-boxes (from Hotel and Restaurant but now is difficult: NO SMOKING everywhere so no more match-boxes) and small soap (same from Hotel) but Icollect also other small things. About you: you are an expert if you get it at a cheap price and sell it at a profit for about 300%. It looks like a good business!

Do you specialize rvshenoy? Is your collection that you are interested in swapping stamps from primarily mint or a particular country? I have massive quantities of used stamps most of them still on paper if you are interested in swapping these kinds of stamps.

Well, I'm not really a collector, anyway. But I do like buying brooches. I prefer the unique ones which is animal-shaped. I usually "hunt" them in flea market every weekend. I wear those brooches and I like changing them everyday. That's why I never have enough lol. Cheers!

I do not understand such a passion. But my wife is also crazy about collecting paper bags. Every time she goes shopping, she will be asking the shop assistant for an extra bag. I used to collect stamps (long ago) but I guess time took it's toll so I gave up. My last coin collections was stolen so that stop me too.

Well... I'm not a coin collector but I have a few foreign notes in my photo album. I think colleting coins is a very good hobby and it fills up your time. Maybe one day your coins will turn up to be antiques and you can get rich by trading it at the antique store. :)
