There are those with coin collections, stamp collections, etc. Me, I collect shot glasses. I have close to three hundred. I have shot glasses from Turkey, Colombia, and Greece, shoot, I have one from Israel with Jesus on it! I saw a story on the news a couple of months ago about a pastor handing out shot glasses in bars to advertise for his church, I emailed him, and he sent me one.

One of the assistant managers where I work collects crock pots. That struck me as odd, even though my dad collects Sunkist juicers.
So, what do you collect?

I don't know if it can properly be called a collection, but, I have a 17 page Word document of quotations, sayings, and quips...

Electric guitars - Carvin, Dean, Jackson. I'm very picky too, new guitars have to be American made, used ones I don't care because I spend a fair amount of time rebuilding and repairing instruments to bring them up to a standard I like. So I guess my hobby of restoring guitars ties into my collecting guitars.

Comic Books - Mostly DC titles.

Novels & Military History books - I have a degree in Lit, sue me.

I collect antique American-made wind-up men's wristwatches, although I haven't added to my collection in many years.

I also collect antique cameras, which I try to restore, when my barely-sufficient mechanical skills are up to the task. Otherwise, you could say I take broken old cameras and make them brokener.

I have quite a collection of used and worthless lottery tickets. Oh well.

Stamps, Baseball cards, hotwheels and a few other things like Books and DVD's. About twenty years ago I started collecting Salt and Pepper shakers from everywhere.

I suppose my Wargaming Miniatures count... although I have fewer than I did since I stopped doing Warhammer 40k.

Still I have at least 500 between Rezolution, Star Wars, Mordheim, and a few others...

Not a collector. However, there are things I can't pass up. My penchant for tartan and single malt scotch has my cupboard filled with barely tasted top shelf scotch, and my closet filled with kilts I'll never wear. LOL!

I collect spores, molds and fungus.

Intentionally lol?
Well I am a potholer you know :wink1:

Actually Egon Spengler from Ghostbusters is one of my geeky heroes.

I have a collection of comics as well but they're being held "hostage" by my oldest brother in exchange for storing them for so long.

Bats, I have a small collection of bat related/shaped/themed items; stamps, candle holders, figurines, rings, magnets, stickers, and two ty beanie babies one large and one small... put them together and you got a momma bat with a baby in her wings... (awwww).

I'm also a DVD collector... roughly 400+ to date.

My son paints Warhammer models professionally, sells them all over the world but he does a few for himself and we have them dotted around the house. Doesn't play the games though.

Is that lucrative?
