Rocks, eclectic unusual objects, scientific apparatus, plants, and old tools are a few of of many obsessions I have.
I tend to atract very heavy stuff and I have dificulty throwing away objects that could have a long useful life.

Spoken like a true Pack Rat. Hee hee. Most everything you seem to find a use for. Whether what you use it for was its intended purpose, however, is a different story.

I collected tabs from coke cans from about age 9 until about four years ago. I kept them in a half-yard glass I got at the Renaissance Festival. I had some idea of getting them melted down for recycling once I got to about 500, and best I remember, I did get to that number, but life got in the way and eventually they ended up in that black void of lost things that everyone eventually finds out exists. LOL.

I collect toys. I had very few as a child and I think I am making up for it now.
I have an entire and extensive colection of small toys I have unearthed while digging various holes over the years, mostly army men hotwheels and action figures of all sorts.

I do have my longest hair and a pony tail of my moms.

i have two footlockers up in CT full of beanie babies, and mcdonald beanie babies too....it's over 10 years old now, and still in original packaging...let's see....Root hit the nail on the head...I collect old hair of mine. It's just something odd that my mom did, and I just went along with it. One day, i will make several wigs out of my hair. My hair is very lush and thick, so, whenever it's way long, I put it in a ponytail and get it chopped off. It was originally intended for locks of love but it fell a few inches shy.

I collect a pension, and according to my wife - I also collect alot of dust


On a more serious note......................

I have never sold a bass since I started playing in my teens

My current stable of bass guitars now totals in at 30

6 of them are "limited editions" where there were only 12 made of each model in the world (the "flying V" bass in my avatar is one of them).

5 of my others are vintage B.C. Rich basses from the 80's that are the "wild shapes" you used to see hair bands playing on MTV

My Mother collected brown ironstone dishes with all the canisters, milk pitchers, bowls, casseroles, etc. I have them now and last count there were over 400 pieces, and I'm still adding to the collection. I also have have helped her collect miniature oil lamps, I have them now also, packed in boxes though, no room with all these damn dishes.... there are probably 300 or more oil lamps.
My love is Eastlake furniture from the early 1800's... I have 2 complete bedroom sets.

I know what you mean about space Mon. I inherited my Grandmother's bells, which I helped her collect, and have added to them. I had to stop because of no more space. Well, not completely stopped. I occasionally run across a particular figurine bell I just have to have.:becky:

My oldest daughter and I were talking about them last week. I told her I can see the conversation between her and my youngest daughter when I die. "You take the damn bells! No you take the damn bells!" :bounce:

I did the beanie baby thing too, and got sick of them taking up a lot of my much needed closet space! I thought I'd sell a few...but they are worth NOTHING after all the money I sunk into them! I still have a few I love and won't part with...they are in a curio cabinet in my dining room. I gave most of them to a mission group going to Haiti...a guy I work with was going there. Unfortunately, that was BEFORE the quake hit. I have a couple dozen left that I'm going to send their next trip down. They pack well and he said the kids love them.

I now collect shot glasses from wherever I go, and blue onion dinnerware.

I love the "Willow" figurines too...I have three of them..wouldn't really call myself a collector, but they are pretty awesome.

When my son died, my friend bought me one of a mother holding the folded flag. My sister bought me one of a mom holding a baby boy, and then at Christmas, she found one that is just a little boy holding a wire sign that says "miss you." Which was perfect to represent me, my son and my older son. It's just amazing to me how many they have that can fit perfectly to one's family.

That was my 2 sisters, you take the damn brown dishes.... and I love them and graciously said I would take them all... These are Hull and McCoy pieces.

Oh and just this past year I look a liking to bird houses of all things... I have about 30 now and growing.
