We both collected Santas before we even met, so the collection is rather huge at this point. Nothing expensive; just ones we like. They're displayed seasonally except for the snow globes which stay on display in the house after a disastrous winter of record freezing temps that shattered many being stored in the garage.
All our other collections are smaller. My partner collects knives. They just have to look good to him, but many have an animal or dragon theme. We display some in rotation, but I grabbed a few just for reference in the photo. He also collects dragons. I collect Hotei Buddhas and have a somewhat large collection of bears of all types that have been given to me over the years. None of our collections are on display as a group. They're all over the house mixed up.
We too, have promised not to start any new collections.
