Do you collect anything (besides purses)?

I like to get a pendant necklace representative of each country I visit. I have a llama necklace from Peru, a coqui frog necklace from Puerto Rico, etc.

i actually don't, which makes me kinda sad now that i think about it...lol...

i do have quite a few vintage T's. those are always fun because you'll never see someone wearing what you're wearing, but i dunno if i'd call it a collection.

HA! That's not stupid!

I always ask friends to bring me back a pencil from places they visit. You can always find a pencil at a gift shop, hence I have a jar full of randomass pencils from places like New Mexico and Disneyland. Glamorous collection, I know you're jealous. :smile:

Hmmh I'm not sure if you can call it collecting but because I love reading and do it a lot I've a room full of books. I can't gicve them away so I guess it's a kind of collection.

That's not stupid at all. My husband and I collect frig magnets too and we are running out of room on our sub-zero! :biggrin:

I collect necklaces from countries I visit, and I collect watches too.

I've been collecting charms since I was little for my charm bracelet. I think I have a lot of charms...just need to find time to bring it somewhere to get them soldered on. Actually, quick question...I have a regular "charm" bracelet for the charms, but lately, I've been thinking about using my Tiffany's bracelet (you know, the one with the heart charm) since I don't really wear it any longer because everyone has one. I think it's a cool way to make it unique....unless it's like "defacing" the bracelet. Not sure what to do...

I used to collect PEZ dispensers. I collect things with cats on them, and Bakelite and Lucite jewelry. Bakelite is much harder to find, and can get expensive, so I don't have very many pieces. There is a great antique show that comes to a town close to here twice a year or so, it's great for that kind of stuff.
