I like oddities that most people would call chotchkies (?). I noticed a few weeks ago that I have multiple monkey-themed chotchkies. Like a sculpture of a monkey sitting on a stool looking into a hand mirror and a pair of candlesticks that look like monkeywaiters in waiter suits and their platters have the candles "growing" out of them. We also have a "pleepleus" look-alike from Three Sheets. But really it's all just junk. Oh and I like bowls and mugs and seem to have a "collection" though I wouldn't call myself a real collector of anything.

I am so glad to hear some of you have big fabric and yarn stashes - ooops, I mean "collections". I have so much fabric and honestly, I couldn't sew it all up in a year!

Yeah my gram is breaking up her depression glass collection to the entire family so that we don't think she is favoring anyone... Depression Glass anyone?

Oh yeah! Those are good ones. I (unintentionally or inadvertently) collect cooking mags and I'm out of room for them. I mean, what if I NEED one of those someday? Then what?

You obviously have much larger digs than I do... I couldn't keep anything to "be nice!"

I have a large collection of playing cards from countries and places that I had visited. I just started collecting long shot glasses...
