A lot of people collect various things. I used to bring back a small stone or rock from the countries I would visit. What can you tell us about that you collect? How long have you been collecting?

...Hi DenverLC, I have dabbled in collecting coins from other countries, as well as some of the older coins from the U. S. I love looking through the pennies that I throw in jars to see if I can find a very old one or one of those wheat pennies from ages ago. So far, nothing exciting, but I'll keep looking, maybe I'll get lucky. Thanks for sharing and take care.

...Hi sahilpadhiyar, Wow! Now you are talking a collection. This must have taken you years and quite a few coins. Sounds like you really love music and games. I have a collection of 78 and 331/3 record albums from the 70's and 80's that I love. I have started to collect DVD's as well, not as much as you, but it's growing. Thanks very much for your response. Take it easy.

...Hi there ruchimom, Now you have my curiosity kicking in and I am wondering, how large a collection you have You don't have to say how many, but is your collection, small, medium or large? I used to collect miniature bottles of drinks from airline trips, had them in my cabinet. One of my obnoxious girlfriends spent the night and decided she would help herself to some of my bottles. Needless to say I wanted to #### her arrogant self out, she did say she would replace them, not the same, dummy. Take care and thanks for sharing.

That makes two of us. I have a sea shell from the Bahamas (Nasau Island) A carbancle from Venice, a Shining stone from Canada and some dry maple leaves too. Then I have dried cones from New Jersey. I also have a stone from the Jhelum river in Kashmir. I dont collect diamonds and rubies but stuff such as I have just mentioned. Whichever country I have visited I will pick something from there.

......Hi allknowing, Nice to know someone else shares my passion. When I would travel on my vacations, it would be one of my goals to find a strange looking small rock or stone, mark it as to origin, and put it in a sand terrestrium for display. I loved my collection, for the memories it held. Our stones and dried cones are worth more to us than the diamonds or rubies in essence. Thanks so much for letting me travel with you. Take care.

Yes I like to collect stuff. I have collected stamps and stickers and stationeries when I was in grade school. Now the stamps are still around and still into it. Then I started collecting figurines of pigs because they're cute and I was born on a year of the pig. I got over it. Then I collect sand, stones, shells from beaches I have been to up to now. Then I collect ref magnets from other countries and other local places.These ones mostly from swaps.

....Hi there sandymay, I have collected a few stamps, those that I have received on letters, and some that I purchased. I love going to the flea markets and looking for unusual figurines, I have one which is special to me of two lambs lying down together in a gray tone, it is adorable. I like seashells and stones as I said as well. I like the pigs. It's fun to collect. Take care and thanks for sharing.
