Do you have a collection? If so, what do you collect and why?

I have several,

About 50 Nascar 1/24 scale die cast cars. I like them. They emulate speed and teamwork.

Silver Strike Coins from Casino’s in Las Vegas. Not a complete set, but I have a bunch of them. I like to display them in my living room.

Souvenir Pencil Sharpeners. I first bought some of these at a yard sale years ago. My kids fell in love with them, and played with them. Over time I got more, not the rare ones, but ones that had a visual appeal or seemed very cool; I have a display case with them in my living room. These are cheap collectibles, they break easily, but they are small vignettes of cars, exotic places, old household items of years past, etc., and my grandchildren enjoy them. (And if they break some, who cares? I can get replacements on eBay for a few bucks each).

Now you know three of the things I enjoy collecting, most of which I have acquired over time. They don’t take up a lot of space, and are not Uber-valuable; They appeal to me and I enjoy that my family and friends get a kick out of them.

I hope you enjoyed peeking into my collections (yes, those are actual pictures of my “stuff”, taken with my Nikon D5600 DSLR), and that you will be inspired to accumulate things that bring you some self-indulgent joy!

Keep in mind that coins can get heavy, make sure the safe is on a floor that can support the weight !
