I collect vintage/antique copper, bronze and brass stuff like candlesticks, trays, containers etc. Mostly from the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau period. I also collect Buddhas.

What a lovely idea. They must be beautiful.

I have some depression glass; pink and green. I love the pink. Wish I had more, but finding it down here is slim pickins.
And I collect wind up toys, plastic, inexpensive, that I started 14 yrs ago when me niece was born. I would buy one for her whenever I saw one, and one for me to keep.
We would play with her's and I would keep mine wrapped in a decorative wooden box I found at an antique shop up north.
I also collect all types of colanders. ? I have a beautiful pot rack, I wasn't sure my ceiling would hold with heavy pots. I had a number of different colanders, so I started hanging them, instead of pots, collected more, and it looks very decorative. Especially when the ceiling lights are on. the lights go through the little holes and cast
STARS on the table. When the table light is on, the light travels up and cast STARS on the ceiling. Just a fun idea.

I used to collect cats - porcelain, carved stone, pottery, etc. I had dozens and dozens of cats, filling every shelf and nook and cranny. And my mother collected owls - hundreds of them. So when she died, I inherited her owls. THEN, we decided to move to Mexico, and got rid of almost everything we owned. I gave owls to the grandchildren, cats to the grandchildren, sold many of both at yard sales. I brought about a dozen of each with me to Mexico and gave the remainder to Salvation Army. Now, I am reluctant to begin collecting anything again...but we do collect handcrafted Mexican masks, and they hang nicely on the walls, inside and out. Here is a picture of our latest, bought at the Puerto Vallarta market a few weeks ago. He is hanging on the back wall of the house, in the back patio.
