Are you a collector?

August 28, 2007 7:23pm CST
I used to be a collector of stamps. Then I just sold them all. I also was crazy about coins. But today no. However, my aunt was for sure. When she died we had to clean out her house. She had every letter ever written to her, some were dated back 1940's, she also had very old clothes, and some garbage too. But she wouldn't let us clean her house for her, saying someone would get some use of it. When she died, we hired a garbage company to come out and take all those useless things. I saved some of the letters. How about you? Are you a collector?

Yes I'm a collector of coffee mugs and old coins. Right now I'm trying to collect a coffee mug from every state and have a lot of them now but still have a ways to go too. I have cute ones of disney, pets and other things of my interest. It's a conversation piece when I had all 75 of them on the wall. lol Now with the coins, it's just plain fun and who knows, maybe one day I'll sell them. I haven't a clue as to how much they're worth or how to find that out or even whw or how to sell them. Do you?

I used to collect lots of stamps. One of my friends sent me her whole album of stamps as a gift and still I keep it in my bookcase. It costs a lot for stamps. Now I have stopped this hobby to get new stamps, but to get and collect old ones from envelops. What makes me feel so glad is that one of my American friends helps collect stamps for me. It is so nice of her to do that. I do appreciate her very much.

It sounds as though your Aunt was more of a hoarder of things which meant something to her. I do collect things though. I have a large collection of Cherished Teddies and Pooh Ornaments, plus a collection of Disney Stamps and ornaments and I love to collect gemstones, pebbles and shells. Brightest Blessings.
