What do you collect?

Recommended Posts

Money. It is always going to worth at least face value and most of the of times only goes up in value. I find it a safe investment. I usually but people birth year proof sets when their children are born. It sparks new collectors some times.

I'm not actively collecting baseball cards but I have thousands of them that I'm proud to have. My son collects seeds. His favorites are Avacado seeds and acorns.

This may not come as a surprise to those who know what I do, but I collect patches from professional fire departments. It kind of started by accident. Before I knew it, I had quite a collection.

 

I also collect antique metal signs, many of which are displayed at our restaurant. I make the servers pay for them with their tips (not really, just thought I'd see if Dave-O was reading my posts). :whome:

Man, those metal signs can get addicting. I wouldn't say I have a collection, but I do have quite a few adorning the walls of my shop!

Metal tins - need to narrow the category, too many to display! Suggestions?

Knives...... I have between 150-200 knives.... Most are fairly new, not even taken out of the boxes but some are extremely old.. 75% are folding pocket knives and the rest are fixed blade hunting/skinning knives. I have knives that are as small as 1 inch including the handle and some that are very long but I will not get into particulars there.:P

 

I have knives that cost less than 1 dollar and knives that cost over $200 and many, many in between.

 

Some knife brands off the top of my head that I own...

Spyderco (several of these)

Boker

Case (many of these)

Gerber (many of these)

Kershaw (many of these)

Buck (many of these)

Swiss (many of these)

Maxam

Bleeds, what is the name of your restaurant if you don't mind my asking?

 

Oh, and I don't collect anything anymore. I had a very impressive baseball card collection as a teen that I had stolen. Haven't had the heart to collect anything since.....well besides ducks and duck bands(a very small collection)
