  • Little Golden Books I have about 475 of them. I never pay very much for them and my collection is worth a couple of thousand although it is worth a lot more to me.

  • I have learned so much about them. They were first printed in the 1940's. There are a few with blue bindings. Twenty five cents was their original price. And the one that I have that is worth the most is about $125. I have had them since I was little but really have got into collecting them for about 6 or 7 years. I find them at Goodwill, Ebay and antique stores. I love books in general and I need to direct my love in one direction so our house did not get overcome by books this was a great compromise. And my kids love them.

  • Sea shells. Well I used to. Every sea shell I collected during my pregnancy is being put into a stepping stone with my sons hand print, so I found a use for them finally. :)

  • Cow stuff!!! I love cows, probably the one animal I actually respect. I have not eaten red (cow) meat for about 20 years now, the one and only meat that I will never eat. I mistakenly started to eat something made with beef stock a couple years ago and immediately vomited it back up!!
    I have loads of stuffed cows, all different! And lots of pics and figurines and such, all cow themed. I love them!!! I even searched the internet when I got my laptop to find a cow print laptop case and special ordered one.
    Weird considering I HATE all other animals with a passion, especially dogs and cats!

  • dust bunnies, dirty dishes and dirty clothes!

    Seriously I do collect recipes. I dont know if it's gotten to be a sickness now or what, but I can hardly go into a store without buying one of those little books near the register that have the easy tear out recipes. I buy all the holiday recipe magazine. barely a day goes by when I dont print one out from the computer.

  • I think I've accidentally begun to collect books. Oh, and any preschool materials. I love preschool stuff.
