I collect flags. Anything that is from a foreign country. But mainly flags. Some currency. :3~

(I may not have started this collection because of my lack of mullah.) :[

I don't really collect anything actively anymore. I have a lot of foreign money, of course I used to collect Pokemon cards when I was younger, and I collected the 50 state quarters, although I don't think I have all of them yet, I'll have to go check.

I don't collect anything, but my dad collects packs of matches from all the places his naval ships have been. A lot of them are in different languages while some of them have pretty ornate covers and scented matches. It's really neat. One of them when you open it has a WANTED sign for Osama Bin Laden in Arabic.

I used to collect coins, but I got bored. =[

I used to collect Pokemon cards, but they were expensive. =[[

I now collect pins, like ones from Disneyland, Hard Rock Cafes, sport events, etc. It's pretty fun, although I really need a new sash now since my first one just filled up.

Why, Pocket Monsters, of course. :)

I haven't had a real collection in a very long time now--going on years, I think. I used to have a rock collection, but I'd get bored of the rocks I had and start a new one every time I went to the beach. I think I had the mind to start a coin collection at one point, too, but that idea never really flew.

Apart from those two things, I also collected Lego bricks (if you could even call it a collection). That was a very long time ago, though. I don't even think I have any of it left. :(

I used to collect rocks from down by the river at the caravan site, but I don't go there often enough anymore, and when I do go down there, I'm down the dell, then down to the springs to swim. Ish lovley ;P Then I come back, dry of properly, and play video games. I don't have time to collect rocks.

I also used to collect TCG, like Pokemon, I stopped when my sister hid all my cards, carried on when I found half of them, then realised I had no more money, and stopped again. I can't find the other half with all my Charizards, and Blastoises, and Venosaurs, and all that jazz.

I collected feathers, I got all the ones I can get in my area, and slightly beyond, all but a swan feather, none of them seem to fall off, and like hell am I gonna jump forward and pull out a lose one, the wonderful animal would rip me in two!

I collected toys out of cereal boxes, random collections. Lost half of them.

I collected so much crap xD

I like collecting in general. If I had the money, I would so buy all the Zelda crap I can. And if I see a Nightwish CD, even though I have downloaded all their stuff, I would buy. If I had the money.

I collect marbles. :| I am very proud of my collection, although a lot of them were passed down to me from my daddio. Marbles ftw. They are all colourful and trippy-looking. ♥

I was obviously a hardcore Pokemon card collector back in the day as well. :'D

I don't usually collect things. I'm too impatient. If I collect something I want to be able to buy the WHOLE set right then and there. If I cant I'll just grab my favorite one out of the set and leave it at that.

I collect stuff I find and like xD No, seriously, I've collected a lot of different things in my life, Pokémon cards for example, and anything that's shiny. I also collected rocks at one point, resulting in the five-kilo collection of normal rocks I still have in a box somewhere. I also collect different manga series and book series, all sorts of notebooks, Pokémon figurines... As I said, I collect anything I find and like ^-^ That's also the reason my room is so cramped.

I used to collect marbles. I have a jar of them on my bookshelf. I also used to collect rocks, and lolably, they're still in the now forty pound bag that I put them in when I was at the beach. Hopefully this doesn't sound weird, but I used to collect mass amounts of pennies. I have over 12,000 of them at this point somewhere in mine or my relatives' house(s). I was broke awhile ago, so I dumped a 'small' pile of them and had Grandpa cash them. The total was $25.00. :33

I use to collect both at least three kinds of TCG back in the day like Pokemon and Yu-gi-Oh. I stopped since it was expensive and nobody around me played TCG anymore the older I got. Even after retiring from playing Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon TCG, I still did collect the cards for about a year until enough is enough.

As of currently, I don't collect anything. What I really want to collect is video games. I guess I got interested in this when I saw Syd Bolton's collection (http://www.sydbolton.com/videogames.asp). The major roadblock for doing this is it would cost a lot more money than simply collecting cards unless I stick with an older system like the SNES. Plus, I need to wait until I have a decent paying job before I even begin to consider to start collecting them since I need to save my money on other important things.

I did collect anime DVD's and manga's, but since I've had to spend money on more "important" things I've stopped for a while.

Oh I also collected Final Fantasy figures. XD

Hotel memorabilia.

Whenever I got to a hotel, I always steal their soap, shampoo, towels and even their plants.

Especially the plants.

I collect, or I used to collect, coins.
I started this whole collection thing a couple of years ago (2002) and have been collecting them since then.

About two weeks ago I got a hold of the last coin, Hawaii, and ended my coin hunt after that.


Aside from that I also collect Mario-related merchandise and some others.

I used to collect rocks when I was five or six. I remember finding a medium sized rock with small crystalines in it. My friend and I broke it in half. I have it ever since.

I now collect sports pennants. That reminds me... My dad still has buy me a Phillies pennant for their World Series victory.

Haha. I do that.
But I don't really collect anything.
I suppose I collect money. But it gets spent, so it's not really the traditional way of collecting xD
