I love vintage glassware and old kitchen gadgets.I also love old wooden picnic baskets and pie baskets just to name a few.This was a great hobby to buy and resell things.I've collected since I was twelve years old and this was something that my sister started me doing.Mom and Dad both helped me collect.My newest collection is vintage colored glass toothpick holders.They fit in a small area and not easy to find so it's fun hunting them down.I still have my china tea set from when I was a little girl,it's all intact including the box it came in.

I love to collect crystal bells, china and crystal cats, and cookbooks. I love to go to fairs
and get all the new kitchen gadgets. I also have a collection of Nascar cars in their
boxes or packages.

I used to collect wonderful, gorgeous, breathtaking Breen Christmas tree ornaments.  Now they are packed in boxes in the basement .... I talked to a woman about selling them on eBay..... I'll never use them again.  
Ditto for a great stack of Fitz & Floyd dishes. 
Ditto for Steiff animals.
A good collection of carved birds/decoys is here too.

I have a collection of turtle figurines in boxes in the attic.  Will probably never display them again.  Sad thing is I probably would never get what I payed for them if sold on E-Bay or Craig's list.  But then again what ever I would get is more than what I would get leaving tem in a box in the attic.
Other than that I think I collect more dust than anything else.

Oh, I do collect baking "stuff" both ingredients and pans.

I used to collect cat related things.  But like others, my favorites are boxed up & put away.  I got rid of a lot of decorative things.  It was just too much to keep up with.  I still have too many books.... But only because I don't have time to read them all.

Hi Susan,I know it's very difficult to lose your Mom,she is up above watching over you as is my Mom watching over me.Remember that you celebrate her life every time you think of her or do something she taught you to do.She smiles down upon you.

In my 20s I started collecting plates.  I used to get mailings from all the different companies selling collector plates.  Sometimes I would get the entire set but mostly I only bought the ones I really wanted.  My favorites were the "Gone With The Wind" plates, scenes from my favorite movie.  But I also have Wizard of Oz, Elvis and several others.  The only problem is that I have so many that never made it out of the boxes.  However I do try to display a few at a time, in my china cabinet, switching them a few times a year.

It was fun while I was collecting them but now I think about all that money tied up in something that just takes up space.  On the bright side, maybe my kids will want them someday :).

I have my dolls, cookbooks, pepper mills and wolves. They are all displayed except for some of the cookbooks that I had to put in boxes because I ran out of bookshelves. I can get to them easily though and like to just sit and read them.

I collect cookbooks, recipe booklets and copies of recipes, magnets and salt and pepper shakers.  Most of them are displayed.  Ran out of room for the cookbooks in my bookcases and have some in wicker baskets.  Enjoy reading them.

When I was a kid, I collected penants from different places that I went to.  Now, I collect pressed pennies from the places that I visit.

Hi Debbie,Are those the pennies that you put in the machine that flattens them and embosses another design in them ?
