I have a collection of stamps which my mother started. The only problem now is that people are more comfortable in e-mail so stamps are not that common anymore. But I have a new collection, playing cards with different designs. I plan on buying even just one every month. For now, I only have 5 designs.

Well, I used to collect angels. I only liked the ones that looked like children. It was more like a very small collection spread around the house as decorations(livingroom, bedroom,bathroom etc). I have stopped because I have a small house so if I continue I won't have room to put them unless I buy a some type of furniture to display them. I have small children so I don't think it's a great idea right now hehehe.

No, I don't make them, I just buy them. (Used to buy them) I think the last time I bought one was about 5 or 6 years ago for one of my kids room.

There is only one thing in my life that I collect. I collect anything that has to do with dolphins. I started this collection when I was fourteen years old when I was visiting a zoo in Chicago on my eighth grade trip. Now, about sixteen years later, I have about 100 of them in my collection. I display my collection on our mantle which really is the focal point of our house. I think that they say a lot about me because of the fact that I love water.

I like to collect Garfield stuff, wall art, knick-knacks, collectable plates, books, crafts, candles, vintage clothing, soaps and shampoo from hotels, freebies offered on the Internet, homemade decorations, stuffed animals, movies, men (lol!), flowers, and anything Mother Nature has to offer!

I collect Barbies. My grandmother and mom started me off when I was very little with the first Happy Holidays Barbie. I have the original 10 Happy Holidays Barbies plus Holiday Barbies that followed them, Marilyn Monroe Barbies, Gone with the Wind Barbies and several others. They are all still in their boxes. I'm now 26-years-old and I still get a Barbie every year for Christmas from my grandparents. One of these days I'm going to have to figure out what to do with them all . . .

Yes I do. I love to collect little things that will remind me of something special or funny. I used to collect stamps before but now I just want to collect little notes from friends or pictures that are memorable. Everybody should try to do it and after a few years try to open the box of memories and you will have a good laugh for sure.

Nowadays I don't collect anything, but in the past I liked collecting things. For example, I collected the plastic spoons that you can get in some cafeterias, as depending on the place they have a different shape or length. Sometimes I ended up with 2 or 3 spoons that looked the same

I'm not a fond person of collecting stuff, though I remember when I was young I used to collect stationaries (letters and stuff) and also Barbie dolls. I do remember collecting letters that was given to me when I was in HS and Elementary. It was fun during those time. But right now, I don't think that I'd do anything of that... Although I love shoes!! Like totally! But I don't consider myself to collect shoes. But I love seeing people's collections. I'm happy for them and I know how these stuff makes them go on with their life. It's like an inspiration sort. Well, good luck and enjoy collecting for those people who are fond of... Maybe sometime you might want to post it on MyLot and I'm sure people would love to see those..

When I was younger, I would collect things like stationaries, stamps, kisses and barbie dolls. Now, i am into stuffs like bags, flip flops and gadgets. i am huge fan of bags. I have white lacoste bag, black ninewest, green longchamp(S), green bag from New Zealand and many more. Most of my bags came from my tita who has been working abroad for more than 10 years. If i have a high-paying job, i would definitely buy signature bags like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Coco Chanel, Gucci, Balenciaga and Hermes.

Hi, alilin28! I used to collect empty perfume bottles, too. But as time went, I got rid of it because it also collected dust and the scents turned nasty. It was not that big of a collection. I still have my stamp collection which I started when I was younger, and when my late grandmother saw how fascinated I was with it, she gave me her remaining stamps too. I have hundreds of it, and some are dating back to the past century.

I collect coins from different countries~~ aside from that I also have antique coins. I didn't know coins all over the world were piling up in my small box until I looked into them. That's when I decided I SHOULD collect coins. Aside from coins, I also collect anime figurines and nendoroids :) they are a bit expensive that's why i'm earning money to buy them.

I love collecting different kind of flowering plants and ornamental plants before. I love planting plants and see them grow each day is a pure joy to me. I stop collecting plants because I don't have lots of time...instead I just take care of my old plants nowadays.
