Hello daryljane, I am collecting paper bags especially with the nice design but whenever I need one, I will just grab any that is in front of me! The things that I really love to keep and collect are perfume bottles and brooches.

My aunt's collection for brooches already covered one side of her living room's wall. She has to have it renovated and make a glass with all her brooches are displayed for us to see..it also have notes on when and where she bought it from all over the world. So when we like go out or travel, we already know what to bring her. just brooches! Shes been collecting it since her high school days up until now that she's already a grandma..amazing huh?

Hello daryljane, Wow, that's really great! She has a collection since her schoolday time? I have many brooches at home but just in a few boxes. I think your aunt has more than me I have many boxes of lipsticks too but I don't think that can be considered good collection *laughs* They won't last long and at the end of the day, I need to get rid of them!

brooches and pins - brooches collection
Actually some of it are from her grandma's and mom's collection pass down to her. And since theres a lot of them and she doesnt want to just put in the box..she wanted everyone to see, so she have to put a glass wall for it. Some are even expensive that they have to put locks. haha! she's a well travelled person, so it made the collection easier acquiring some from another country. Nice pieces of collection but takes a lot of taking care to do.

UNfortunately the only thing that seems to collect in plenty in my house is dust. I used to collect mythical creature ornaments, but they were broken and lost long time ago by my eldest.

I don't collect anything anymore, but I used to collect anything to do with cats, cushions, napkins, posters, figurines etc.

Im right now collection napkins from different restaurant and bars, especially with names in it. I just framed one set of napkins and hang it in our living room. Im on for the next set of napkins to match the first one.

I collect bells and clowns. I also am collecting the USA state quarters but haven't gotten them all yet. One other thing I've started collecting that is unusual is I like to look for heart shaped rocks when I go somewhere special. Like at a park or some place like that. I will look around on the ground and look for a heart shaped rock. I have a few. I write the name of the place and the date on them.

I really do not collect anything anymore. I use to collect clowns and I also use to collect lighters as well. Now I have nothing but I guess I have some of those Mountain Dew Bottles but I tried to sell them on craigslist but no one bought them. I would love to collect things but with my young kids around thats hard to do. Nice discussion and happy mylotting to you daryljane.

I collect shot glasses from each place that I vacation. I have a shot glass from various beaches, Mexico, and many states. My wonderful husband made a really nice display case for my shot glasses that hangs beside the bar in our den. Your paper bag collection sounds interesting.....I have never met anyone who collected paper bags!
