Books, classical music CDs and DVDs. I did half-heartedly start collecting the Discworld stamps, but that all got far too serious for me. :)

Medieval weapons, interesting coins and old bricks. I use the bricks to build flower beds and other landscaping things.

I was walking with this guy once who was going on about all the different old bricks and the names on them from where they were made. I told him that I had a collection of old bricks at home. He got really excited until I told him that I called it a wall. :lol:

Charity pins/badges. I don't, like, hunt them down, but whenever I see a tray on a reception desk or counter when I'm out and about I buy one and stick it in a pinboard I got when I get home.

All things Thelwell.
Model horses, any medium.
Ducks, mainly wooden but I have Beswick & others.

Books.
Terry Pratchett.
Anne McCaffrey.
Horse.
Birds & Animals
Antique & Collectables.


DVD films, Disney etc.
Julip & Breyer horses.
Teddy Bears, any make that takes my fancy, but it has to have a expressive face.
Steiff horses.
Post cards, horses particularly, but others & animals as well.
Horse brooches
I could probably think of other things as well. :D :D :D
Best wishes,
Tiff

I suppose the closest I am to collecting is Magic: The Gathering cards. Only started playing a year or two ago, but got a decent collection started, I guess. ^^

Hmm sandman, I'm looking to get rid of my MtG collection (I only ever really play against my mate here in Madrid) before leaving Madrid at the end of June if you'd be interested in buying, I don't imagine overland postage would be too expensive if you are near the Spanish border. Pm if interested and ill give you a list of cards obv if anyone else is interested likewise let me know.

Right now I appear to be collection unfinished projects. :doh: seriously, the Sony Vegas and Source Filmmaker save folders have probably a dozen projects each that aren't done yet. I'll start on one, get distracted, get a new idea, start on that, get distracted...... it's a wonder I finish anything.

I also collect dvds, and blu-rays, but can't do those as much any more. and trying to finish my discworld collection.

I used to collect trading cards. have alot of them. baseball, ninja turtle, star trek, even have the star trek next generation trading card game, and lots of pokemon cards (i think i may actually have a full set of the first series release. even have that holofoil charizard card everyone went psycho over.)
