    In relation to my other thread I’m wondering if anyone here collects anything and if so, what!?

    I myself have been a collector of NBA Basketball cards off & on for about 20 years now (when funds permit haha); so just curious if we have any other collectors around here and what you collect. :)

    I wish I hadn’t seen this. I collect Agatha Christie books, I’ve only got three to go. I also collect badges, the cheap ones with slogans on them, I prefer them pre-loved; probably have around 700

    I collect a lot of retro and vintage collectables I wouldn’t call my self a picker but I always find things out on jobs that I know I can turn for a profit most recently I got two extremely rare dragster /chopper push bikes for $35 each and they are valued at $500each. And vinyl records

    Every time we fit a towbar to a car that we haven’t done before I am very diligent about taking a picture of it, getting the back ground clipped and posting it to our website.

    I tell myself it is because I am serious about my web content. But if I am honest with myself the collector in me gives a little ‘yay!’ every time I ‘collect’ another image for the portfolio.

    At least collecting digital assets doesn’t clutter up the house:)

    Steve,

    To me that habit of getting a photo is a golden opportunity. If you added that photo to a card and sent that to the customer with a thank you for ‘shopping with us’ message they’ll remember you. Message me if you’re interested.

    I was big BB cards when I was younger. The thrill of opening the pack!

    These days I am getting into straight razors. Not only are the ultra cool and have a lot of history, they are practical.

    Well, we do have a regular backyard “Rex” who visits, but no – these are inanimate ones (except when I give them all little voices to talk to me, then they’re real ;) )

    I also collect retro knitting needles and related things. My mum does as well. (daggy I know) There are some really funky cool things out there to be had in op shops

    I like to collect “MONEY”.
    There seems to be however a small problem, whenever I have collected a reasonable amount “shewhomustbe” spends it.
    If “shewhomustbe” dosent then her apprentce “daughter” does.
    I still like to collect “MONEY”
