@Paperbagprincess14:  dragons. This is just a pic of the curio cabinet (sorry it’s sideways) but I have them everywhere, including 3 dragon tattoos.

i collect barbies.  i have over 200.  they are all at my mom’s house.

hopefully my next house will be big enough for me to have a barbie room.

i also collect Ilardo, but I have not purchased any pieces for myself yet, my mom gave me all of hers and my grandmothers when my grandmother passed away.

I’m starting to collect the little Christmas village houses and buildings! My SO got me three for Christmas. They’re expensive, so hopefully I get more for future birthdays and Christmases!

@Paperbagprincess14:  I wish I collected something cute and little, but my mom chose playing cards for me. My parents travel all over the world for work, they always brought my me and my sisters something. One sister had already bought a couple key chains from different places, and the other sister shot glasses. So, my mom said gift shops always have playing cards. I have no idea how many decks I have. I have them from all over the world, unique shapes and sizes, even some antique ones in really cool decorative boxes. 

I don’t really collect them any more though. Now my mom usually brings me shirts or jewelry, but if I remember I buy a pack when I’m traveling.

I collect vintage salt and pepper shakers. Perfect because they are inexpensive but useable and so cute.

We get magnets from everywhere we travel to. We have magnets from trips we did when we first met, so it’s been almost 8 years now!

Our magnet collection isn’t super huge, but holds enough sentimental value that I carried the darn things in my hand luggage when we moved across the country recently.

I’m an informal collector of makeup.  I love to look at it and buy it but almost never wear it – it’s terrible what a waste of money it is. >.<  Luckily, I’m not TOO crazy.  I also collect skincare, but that I do use. 🙂

Oh!  And I would love to start collecting Michelin stars (as in going to Michelin star restaurants all over the world), but I don’t know when I’ll be able to afford such an expensive hobby. 😛  I’ve collected one to date!

It’s pretty boring, but my main collection is stamps. I also collect vintage silk scarves from a designer/artist named Vera Neumann. My FI collects dragons & since moving in together I guess I’m part owner of a dragon collection, too! Lol

Every time I go to a different country I grab a glass coke bottle.  I think I have about 9 coke bottles with different languages on them.  I don’t have a pic, but I’ve been doing it since I was 13.
