I have picked up some nice carnival glass pieces at garage sales.  people don't know what they have and put a quarter or something on it. (oh, and did I mention I collect guns)

Quoting mikiemom:

I do Antiques - the 1890s and 1930s are my era, My Dh likes stuf from the 50s.

carnival glass, furniture, jewlery books, old hats - any art decco item from the 30's depression glass.

My ex-husband has two aunts that damned near got into a fist fight over his grandmother's depression era milk glass because they both collected it.

Now that is some beautiful stuff.

My sons found my PacMan bank and took ownership of it (there is a handle that flipped coins into his mouth like he was gobbling them).  That made me feel VERY old!  Like they say, things come in cycles, so what is old is new again!

Quoting Carpy:

Some banks can be really valuable.  (and I don't mean the money in them LOL)

Quoting Kmcasey9:

When I was younger, I collected banks. I still have my collection in a box in my basement (I am 41).  The past 15 or so years, I have found myself collecting monkey-themed antiques (old figurines, Steiffs, etc).

My ODD collects rocks (she even has a display) and turtle-themed things (I started calling her Turtle-Bug the day she was born).

My ODS collected Ty Beanie Bears.  Only the bears.  He still keeps his 2 favorites on his bed (Chilly and Sparkle Bear).

My youngest DS and DD don't collect anything...yet :)

Dolphins, horses and Titanic. I have paintings, plates and figurines of a wide variety of horses and dolphins. Titanic I have a plate, books and all the movies.

I used to work for a Theater chain so have a few movie collectibles, my fave is the double sided, one sheet poster from the 50th anniversary release of Fantasia. A friend at Disney gave that to me. We had a Star Trek 6 one sheet but an evil cat destroyed it. DH has a ton of Star Trek goodies, figures, ships, art, etc.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!
