I forgot, I do too. I don't have a lot, but I have mostly coins rather than paper. I have an Iranian bill. I have coins from Panama, Bolivia, Italy, Germany, Australia, to name a few, and of course (since they are our neighbors) Canada and Mexico. I'm sure nothing I have is worth anything, as I just happened upon most of them.

Another thing I collect is post cards. I don't just buy them. I like people to send them to me. Most of the ones I have gotten are from around the United States, but I have received a few from Europe, including a couple from DC members.

I have about 1,000 cookbooks, several coffee mills and two cabinets full of cruets, mostly colored ones.

My 'coollections' must have utility and function.

I was collecting SLR lenses (that thankfully are compatable with my dSLR). Lighting, shooting and Darkroom equipment and precision thermometers.

I have a collection of old wood working equipment. When I started down the wood path I looked at the new bog pieces but it didn't take long to realize the new stuff comparable to the old stuff was way overpriced. I have newer chisles and drills and such because the auctions and sales with quality stuff attracted too many other people like me.

Wood, I have sheets of cabinet grade solid core plywood, Dimensioned and raw ash, oak and cherry, some walnut.

Cast Iron .... Oh MY!! When Wife realized I prefered cast she started dragging the stuff home, Much to my consternation. The dutch oven(s), the 14 inch round grill, the Griz waffle iron, the LeCreuset, those are one thing. The 30+ pans between 3 and 8 inches ... AAAargh!!!!! I don't need it but once I see it I have a hard time parting with it. then the last thing she brought home was a new, in the box LC 2 QT. Casserole with the stickers still on it .... $3 .... I guess one has to take the good with the bad. Wife couldn't stop dragging home spring forms .... I give them away with the cheese cakes. I still have about a dozen.

Wife collects coffee pots. She must have 3 dozen. A friend of hers had a coffee shop and she put I don't know, 2 dozen?, on display. Everyone loved them. It made the place. But it also opened up a spot in the storage which she filled with mopre pots. I think the count is up to 3 dozen by now.


Does Knowledge count as a collection? If only all my hours were in one direction ....

I don't collect anything... use too. The only thing I have left is my incense collection. One day I'm gonna light everyone of them up in my back yard! I gave/donated all other collections I had.

We know someone who has placed his entire collection of world currency under glass - just a sheet of glass covering a coffee table. Look good and is pretty secure as well.
