What do you collect?

I'm not big on collecting things but I have a small hand bell collection, including the school bell that was used in the second school I taught in.  I also have and odd plate collection.  When I see an unusual or particularly attractive dinner or serving plate I'll buy it and use it for serving cakes, cookies, sandwiches, etc... So, what do you guys collect?

I collect(ed) dragons - dragon books, figurines, and the like.
I've stopped, though, because I have no money, it's a waste, and I don't really see the point.
I still love dragons, of course..

My fascination with dragons started when I was 13 and  I first read Eragon.

I collect maps. I used to have my ceiling covered with aviation charts that covered the western 1/3 of the US.

I also not so much collect, but amass linguistic stuff, books, clips, brain charts, etc.

That with my bmw esc desktop computer, my bedroom is a geek lair.

Q: Where do you keep them?

In a resealable, air-tight, BPA-free jar.  Right next to the canisters I use for my dried beans and flour(s) from the bulk bins. ;)

Heirloom seeds, espcially tomatoes.  I need to get into a 12 step program for vegetable gardeners.  http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=31661.0

I collect silly cow things. (big surprise for a veghead, right?? hehe)

My favorites so far are my matching cow salt and pepper shakers (they have swirly mustaches painted on), and my cow cookie jar.  :)>>> I find almost all of them at local thrift stores. I have wayyy too many...

I collect vintage/antique military rifles and other war relics.

My collection gives me the opportunity to engage people discussions on the insanity of war - the ultimate failure of civilization.

Don't know if this will make me sound interesting or like an alcoholic, but I like to save beer bottles so one day, when I go to Michigan to visit family, I can return the bottles for 10 cents each. I threw a bunch away because I thought it made me seem like an alcoholic to have a buch of empty beer bottles in my room. I want to save up enough to like go on a vacation....with beer bottles.

Okay, it makes me just seem weird..

Do you live in Michigan? Don't the bottles say what state they are redeemable in? I know in CA it actually says CA CRV or has CA circled if there are more states listed on the bottle... So even if I wanted to I redeem my bottles in Michigan I couldn't... Just wondering if it is the same everywhere?

There was an episode of hoarders where a guy was doing that.

That show makes me puke, although I could probably be on that show in ten years. I should probably stop doing that.

Vinyl.

I don't have an official count, but I'd be willling to guess it's well over 3,000 records.

;D  I take it you don't move too often.

This post makes me so sad. When I moved to Nashville from California, I had to leave behind about 1,000 records and I sold a bunch of stuff I didn't listen to. I literally have like 300 records here in Nashville and no turntable to play them on. Sad :( :( :(

I collect recipes...compulsively...more recipes than I'll ever have time to make in my life.  Drawers and binders full of them.  it's pathetic, really.

;)

I also collect songs.  I love learning new songs, especially folk songs, songs from other countries, arias, lieder...

And vocabulary.  I'm kind of a language geek. 

At least those last two things don't take up shelf space.
