I collect angels. I also collect a lot of dust. Seems to be overtaking my house! Now THAT'S something I wish I could market on e-bay!

Do any of you sell on e-bay? I've not tried it yet but keep talking about it. Good? Bad? OK? I know one person who makes excellent money at it (but he also works at it like a job). Other than that...any input would be appreciated.

I collect teddy bears both stuffed and figurines. I also collect records LP's and 45's. I have nearly 3000 of them...talk about collecting dust. I need a jukebox bad! Anyone know where I could find one cheap? I also collect peacock vases and cookie jars.
I also collect gray hairs as I have two teenagers and a husband who sometimes thinks he's still a teenager! LOL

Get some kind of trade magazine and you should have no trouble finding one in Chicago area. When I drove a truck in Chicago, I saw a few warehouses that stored them. I think Tony Soprano ran the joint. E-bay should be the place to go according to my oldest son Pugsley.

I collect English Art Nouveau antique majolica architectural tiles, old matchbox covers, tiny ornate matchbox holders, artistically interesting found objects, vintage Japanese kimonos and obis (well, I'm selling and collecting them), collage-friendly ephemera, assemblage art by Southern artists, and fossils. I amass books and art supplies.

My recent move to Orlando has forced me to drastically downsize, but I still have way too much treasure.

I collect angels. I just had to get a new shelf because my one shelf was crammed. I'm started to get different kinds though, and they are slowly taking over.

I collect cobalt blue glass, Imari china & carnival glass, which I think go rather well together Have some nice amethyst glass & 20 coal oil lamps. I've got a 200+ pig collection but I'm bored with it, anybody out there need a few. I also collect dust as in "quit playing that G**d****d Sploofus & dust this place

My son collects 45's, has just over 2000 & we bought a jukebox, which never seems to work without fiddling with it. He's been playing it all day, sounds wonderful. Sock Hop, anyone

I collect ceramic pie plates, particularly ones with a picture of the pie and recipe imprinted on them. I also collect candle toppers, Snow Buddies, and classic rock CDs, a lot of which I have acquired through Ebay for minimal amounts of money if nobody outbids me. I have thought about selling on Ebay too but have not yet tried it.

Was/am (when I have time) on E-Bay with hats. My friend, who does it for me, also has a site where she sells plants and seeds. She does really good-sells all over the world! Sold hats all over the world also. For her, it's a full-time business...listing, packing, shipping, but as I said, she makes a lot of $$$, it's something she enjoys and it does keep her occupied.

Anybody want a couple of thousand Beanie Babies-lol.

Thinking about putting some baseball cards and full sets on, but they took a dive.

Anybody want Jose Cansucko rookie cards? Keeping Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth.

I also have about 50 autographed baseballs, but I'm keeping those as they were all personally autographed (including pictures of the player signing).

I'll post Sports Memoriabila.

Son has comic book collection.

Wheat, wheat, got those too.

Collections! What don't I collect???

I have an immense collection of Victorian trade cards and other advertising ephemera. Most of it is for sale, if anyone's interested. Used to do quite well as a dealer, and then the bottom fell out of the market, thanks to ebay. I do have some stuff up for sale at a private website, but right now it is doing quite badly.

I also collect antique trays, and have them all over my walls. Salt glazed stoneware. Interesting dressed animals.
How many do you have to have to have a collection? I have a wonderful gourd painted to look like a woman, and would love to have more.

Have recently collected a whole bunch of pounds - and not the kind you can spend. Looking to get rid of those, too. Let me know if you would like them!!

I usually tried to get a "cat" figurine from every place I visited.......I dearly love them.....but alas, I am running out of room so I have stopped. I have also stopped trying to take in every stray cat in my neighborhood.......finally took down the neon "cats welcome here" sign off the roof of my house. I still have 7 inside and hope to keep it at seven.

What a great image - G&R groupies trooping off the bus, knuckling their eyes and scratching their butts, headed for some Happy Meals.

I'd've given a lot to be there with my camera.

Memories like that are what's most fun to collect.
