Trinket box's are a good thing to collect, they are very pretty on a shelf. my mother used to collect perfume bottle's year's ago and now I have some of them.

I collect candles just because I like them and I like the smell of them . I don't get to light them very often though as my husband is allergic to them . The other thing I like to collect is anything to do with hearts . I love hearts and have my whole dish pattern in my kitchen done in blue hearts . I have always liked hearts and it is something you can collect without having a house full of them as it is not something you find in any nick nack store in our area as I find most people that collect stuff end up with too much of it as everyone tries to buy it for them :)

Candle's are a very nice thing to collect and they smell so nice, they have a lot of different scent's. I have some heart related item's also but not that many. I burn my candle's on a candle warmer that I got as a present several year's ago. this way I don't have to light them, they just melt, when they melt they get a clear color and when they cool off they go back to their origanal color. You are right on that one, if every one bought thing's for you, then you would have to much of any thing. I found that out, when people find out what I collect they go out and buy thing's for me and then my house if full of to many thing's. :) :) :)

When i was much younger i collected candles, nice scented ones, patterned ones & multi coloured ones. A few years ago i started collecting TY Beanie Buddies & ended up with quite a collection of those but they have to go coz i'm running out of room for everything! I also collect ANYTHING on Eeyore - the donkey from Winnie the Pooh, especially snow globes, water balls whatever you call them in your particular country! I have a few of them but could always do with more! Our DVD collection is pretty impressive but i guess it'll be a never ending thing since there are always more new movies being released so it'll continually grow! I think that's about it though, maybe i am just a hoarder but still i have heaps of things here that i have collected over the years & just haven't been able to part with most of it!

I just love candle's, they smell so nice. I have a collection of them also, several Christmas's ago some one gave me a candle burner to burn them with having to light them. that way the candle's last longer. My sister collect's any thing that is Cocoa Cola related, she even has a room that is Cocoa Cola theme. Her husband keep's telling her that he will have to take their side porch off and build that room bigger just so she will have room for all her coke thing's,lol.

old money - old money that I used to collect
when I was a child, I used to collect the old money and I collect so many kind of money . but at last my mother use them to buy something by mistake. then I feel very upset and sad . so I stop collecting anythings till now . I think collect something you like is a good habit and you can enjoy yourself by collecting . if I am really interested in something, I will try to collect them and might get a new habit .

I used to collect different kinds of used stamps of Philippines and Saudi Arabia. Then I got bored so I trashed the stamps. Then I decided to collect different kinds of papers. But I always use them. Right now I am collecting different kinds of glow-in-the-dark stuffs. I love them. It gives light in my night. Haha! But I would really want to collect miniature toy cars. I'll start buying every month after I have my first job.

My mom used to collect stamp's also,you must have a lot of light in your house from your glow in the dark collection. miniature car's are a nice thing to collect also, I had an uncle who collected train's and any thing related to train's.
