i used to collect basketball trading cards or stamps or football or dragonball cards or stickers and even magic cards but i threw almost everything away except stamps.
i know they worth alot over the decade or something.
i collect figuring or vinyl toys now.
i do keep alot of newspapers ads or fashion catalogs and even namecards and flyers and posters and dvds too.

i have lots of books and magazines as well.

I collect names...whenever I see or hear a name I like, I write it down and find out and record the meaning and the name's origins. I have thousands. Guess it'll be useful if and when I ever have a baby!

I used to do that too! Then i realized i had too many written down and wouldn't be able to pick any for my future kids so i stopped

I collect vinyl toys, magazines and wrapping paper. I love framing them!

I collect pictures. I have a HUGE archive. I cut them out of magazines, save them on my computer. Everywhere. Whenever I see something beautiful I photograph it.


I love pictures

i recently started with a collection of fairytales and also myths. found so many old books from past times (my own and also very old -and very beautiful- ones from my mum and grandmother!). also, there are so many people giving them away for free at flea markets so i just take the most beautiful ones with me
i already have all from brothers grimm and also many foreign ones now! especially the nordic storys are very beautiful... sweden, norway, iceland they have the most beautiful and special fairytales.

I have many collections not really related to one another, I guess I go for what interest me at the time.

For example, when I was younger I collected marbles ... And I had 3 special ones that I got from spray paint containers ... It was dangerous but the transparent dark blue color really made them the kings and queens of my collection! I still have that collection.

Then I collected, tiny things that where meant to be big, and big things that where meant to be tiny. Like small cars, small figurines, big safety pins, just to give you an idea.

Then horses ... then toy story dolls ... Among them cute toys ( I was a boy then ...)

Now I go for the rare collectors items.

Like vinyl toys, visionaire issues, rare photo books, vintage paperweights, patern boxes and things. And those metal puzzles that require you to think ...

But my biggest collection has to be: High Fashion Magazines! & High Fashion store display posters!

I just love glossy posters or any fashion poster.


Oh I almost forgot!
A large collection of music and foreign films.


I also started "collecting"clothing and shoes ...



Sick little boy ...

Fashion magazines... too many to count, they're swallowing up my room at an alarming rate.
