Something different. What do you collect?

Posted by   + Show Post

I collect antiques.  Anything Mickey and Occupied Japan items, primarily, but other things as well.  I have a bedroom that is antiqued.  And I also collect Plates series' with wolves and eagles.

Garage sales. Especially if it is someone selling off their parents stuff.

I now have every color of carnival chicken made and the entire set of Northwood peacock at the fountain except for the punch bowl. I still haven't decided how much I would pay for one if I ever find it. My husband likes the blue carnival glass so we have a lot of that as well.

this is part of the original set that my Great-Grandfather went around the carnivals in Iowa winning for my Great Grandmother, it is Northwood Peacock at the Fountain. I now have the entire set minus the punch bowl.

Carnival glass?  I'm sure that isn't the correct name for it but it is what I have always called it.

Beautiful!

Coins both American and foreign.  I've got ll sorts of coins from various countries my husband has been to in his Navy travels. 

I guess I collect baby carriers in a way now too.

I have a very large collection of 19th Century photographs.

A few daguerreotypes, many tintypes, a few larger cabinet cards, but the majority of my collection is CDV's (cartes de visite) and the albums they come in.

I don't get to many antique stores these days with three boys in tow.

I also have a huge stockpile of fabric and millinery trimmings. But, my husband and I disagree on its status as a collection.

I really will use it some day and not just keep adding and adding until I die. (Probably crushed under some fabulous silks.)
