Do you know much about worlds fair items?  If so I have something pretty cool.

I found a 1796 copyright version of a biography of christopher columbus. I have a 1932 college physics textbook. I have a bunch of Chicago World's fair memorabilia - I have a lot of 1930's furniture and jewlery and clothes and kitchen stuff.

Hats.  I collect Tampa Bay Lightning hats.  They're on display in my living room.

Giraffes.

Anything and everything shaped like a giraffe or giraffe-themed like figurines, pictures, spoons, pens, etc...

I love them and think they are beautiful animals.

My mom has a bunch of those.  Always was an easter egg hidden in one or two.

The Copper Fox in Sperryville Virginia (antique store) has an entire room with Hindu, Buddhist, Asian art type stuff. I guess someone in the foreign service either died or is trying to sell their collection of wonderful items.

That cracked me up.

Quoting turtle68:

I always wanted to collect something....but alas I dont have an attention span for anything...which is probably why I enjoy an ecclectic minimalist home.

Well ecclectic is pushing it....more like unmatching crap LOL

I have a small collection of old spoons that was my grandmother's.

I love anything Arts and Crafts movement, so I have a Weller jardiniere.  It is the first of my collection.  A work in progress.  :-)
