    My wife and I collect Funko products. This is all in our basement living room. A bunch of Funko Mystery Minis, Funko Pop! figures, and Funko Dorbz along with some other random things. The other half of our basement is all Hello Kitty that the wife collects. I dont have pics of that right now.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hand made (USA!) knives. I'll post some pics later. Have a very old Bowie Knife from 1845 that was made by Jim Black, who made the knifes for Jim Bowie. Found it at a yard sale in the country. Didn't have the wood handle and was caked in grime. Bought it for $5. After I hot tanked it in my ultrasonic cleaner, I just about fell over when I found the makers mark/name on the knife. It has real hickory grips now.

    My husband has a mini collection of flashlights with me having just one but I did most of the research. These things can cost quite a bit more than vaping gear.

    The Nitecore Tiny Monster 26 was quite the flashlight a few years ago.

    Used to collect guns and camera gear. Both way more expensive than vape gear. Those collections went away a few years ago when we fell on financially hard times. Now when my wife complains that I bought another mod or RDA I ask her if she would prefer if I came home with another lens, or gun, or reloading press. The usually concedes at that point.

    I guess I collect dead buried animals. Live animals aren't really considered a collection, are they? But, I bury them when they die so.......................

    I never really thought about it, but I don't collect anything. I have a few hobbies and the stuff that goes along with them that I've acquired but no collections.

    Here is a collection that might interest Cromwell. He just needs some semen flavored ejuice and he is good to go.

    There are more shelves on the side of the room where I'm standing for those pics, but I don't have any shots of those. And some hundreds more in my Amazon Kindle cloud...

    I enjoy collecting vintage guitars. I only have a couple now after having to sell a bunch off when I retired and moved. I just bought a rare Harmony electric guitar. It was a cheap guitar in it's day but has since become worth several times it's original value. Surprisingly after a setup, electronics cleaning, and some new strings it plays well and sounds fantastic.

    That setup you pictured looks exactly like what my grandfather used, till he died in 1985. He wouldn't recognize new razors! :giggle:

    I collect glass and railroad items from the gold Rush era. We find a lot 8n streams or digging up old garbage piles (which are hard to find) from the gold Rush. Also Indian artifacts, but we donate them to the local tribes when we find them. Also collect antique firemen gear for my Pops.

    Magic the gathering cards, mostly to play with, but it's becoming a lot. Books, video game consoles (mostly nintendo), and some funko products as well. Don't have anything crazy to post pictures of though!

    I also gather musical instruments when I can but nothing I can't play, and not too much at the moment...you know...pricey. Just trumpet, pocket trumpet, keyboards, a guitar, and a ukulele atm.

    Yep, my wife has a huge collection of magic the gathering cards. All old ones, nothing newer than 10 years ago. I don't play, so I don't know much about them, just know that most of what she has is worth a nice bit of money lol.

    I did collect comic books for a while. Not for several years now, though.

    Suppose I also have a small collection of books as well. A lot of Terry Pratchett in that, almost had some Foxfire books, wife let them come and go in her store without realizing it. Collect some movies. Always good having all the Die Hard series on hand, and Hudson Hawk.

    I collect memories.
    But those seem to be getting more elusive as I age...
