    Default What else do you collect aside from Halloween stuff?

    For me...it's comic books and super hero stuff.. I'm a big nerd and have some cool first appearances of comic book characters.

    I unintentionally also have a collection of pinball machines.

    What kind of junk tickles your fancy?

    Pez, though I'm seriously considering divesting myself of a HUGE portion of that collection & only keeping the holiday ones & a few others.

    I don't have pics though, they're all squirreled away at the moment. Which is why I think I'm getting rid of them.

    My husband collects tiki stuff, especially mugs.

    For me it's die cast cars.
    Then a few times a week I collect full cans of beer and turn them into empty cans for recycling..............

    Pezz? That is awesome. You should round them all up and display them before selling. I did that with my comics..it took me 4 months, but after doing that I found new enjoyment in my collection.


    Die cast cars are cool too! I have a small hot wheels collection, but it's mostly superhero/Batman related. Anytime I saw a Batmobile I'd snag it. Especially if it was the 1989 onw

    I just don't have the room to store ALL of them & I put out the holiday ones for each holiday. Right now they're all in Rubbermaid tubs in the garage or all over the place in the house. It's almost a perfect thing to collect since they're small so you can store a TON of them in a small space & the new ones aren't expensive, so I kinda got outta hand with them at one point.

    I'm still waiting for my Freddie Mercury Pez though. I always thought that Pez would NEVER make KISS Pez because of their reputation in general, scary looking, Gene Simmons & his number of "partners" in certain adult activities, & all the other nonsense that people believe about them in general, but they finally did a full boxed set for KISS so I'm hoping that one day we'll get Queen Pez.

    Pez has also figured out that people collect them & they now sorta cater to the collector market so it's just not as much fun anymore. Also, I kinda hate the actual candy so I generally just toss it.

    Bugs.

    Well, not at home anymore, the wife don't like that. My home collection is at the local university and used to teach class. Though I do have several native bee hives around the yard, and have been told I'm rather unnatural in my care of the local insect populations, enjoying pests just as much as 'beneficial' ones (It's hard to have lady bugs or praying mantises if you chemically remove their prey, some can't seem to fathom this fact)

    But I start a new display/collection every time I move at work of things just at that location. It never ceases to amaze people just how many different kinds are in the facility. Not much to show right now as I've been in this location about a week before my Halloween vacation. Just a few true bugs and a couple species ants.

    Are you pondering what I'm pondering?

    Frogs. I have a few unique Halloween froggy items and a ton of froggy Christmas ornaments. I have so much frog stuff it's insane! I still have 2-3 boxes of frogs packed in my basement that are awaiting a spot in my house. I just got a frog doorbell surround and there are frogs scattered all over outside my house.

    Unimpressed Cat is not impressed!

    It's almost like he (or she?) is saying "Oh great, another frog ."
