Any collectors out there? What do you collect?

I was wondering if there were any collectors in the myLot group? Seems like everyone I know collects something. When I was a kid I had a spoon collection and my mom collected tiny pictures. Some people collect coins, sports cards or dolls. How about you? What do you collect?

I knew someone who collected shot glasses. My family doesn't drink so I am probably not aware of how common that is. They a small and don't take up a lot of room so they probably make a good collection item. I bet the jewlery boxes a pretty. People put a lot of work into making them unique. Thanks for sharing.

yeah the shot glasses are cool because now I have over 200 and they are from all over.. the jewlery boxes are neat because I don't really collect from the USA. Most all of the ones I have are from different countires.

Did you collect them all on your travels or do people give them to you?

I collect Native American arts and crafts from our trips to Indian lands. Each piece reminds me of a trip and what we enjoyed on that trip. And they are a very peaceful thing for me to have in my house. It kind of grounds me to be connected to the culture. Anyone else collect Native American things?

My mothers roots going way back are Cherokee Indians. She was always very proud of that, as I am. We never really collected artifacts like that though that I can remember. We did used to try and find arrow heads all the time I remember. Its good to do something that makes you happy and makes your house feel more peaceful. Thanks for sharing.

I have a Barbie doll collection. I never liked Barbies or dolls in general when I was younger, but actually became interested in them in college. I wrote a research paper on Barbie dolls my sophmore year and after that I started my collection. I consider it an investment. I have a few that are worth a bit of money already, but most aren't worth much more than they were when I bought them. However, if I hold on to them and take good care of them (they are all still sealed in the original boxes), then eventually they will most likely be quite valuable. This collection is something meaningful that I could pass down to my children or grandchildren someday.

That's a neat idea. Keep an eye on them when you have kids, they will think hey look what we found, all these really cool dolls. lol They might help you open them up when your not looking. I had sealed boxing cards and was always worried one of the kids would break the seal. They didn't though. Thanks for sharing. Good lucky with the collection, sounds like a smart investment.
