What Do You Fancy (collect)?

There are a variety of items I collect. Some for investment, some just for fun, while others...just because I can!

My husband travels worldwide and we are coffee peeps. So wherever in the world he is that has a Starbucks, he brings me home a mug. Silly, I know. However, each one I have thus far are pretty fabulous:

Singapore is my favorite. It is white, all of them are, but the pictures are red. Cancun is fabulous, turquoise with the Mayan Ruins on it, as it the Riviera Maya. Luzern (Switzerland) also a fav. I have Taipei-Taiwan, Nagoya-Japan, Frankfurt-Germany, Seoul-Korea, Paris, London, and many of the US States...and of course Vegas baby!

Oh, Harley Davidson pins also for my vest and/or jacket. Those are fun and easy to acquire. There are shops everywhere! 

What is your "it thing" to collect?

Art deco era smoking accessories, mostly table lighters.  Pretty stuff, from way back when it was still actually considered "glamorous" to smoke, ha!  I have cases to put the cigarettes in, holders to smoke the cigarette from, beautifully sculpted lighters, and fancy ashtrays, some even in matched sets.     Very little makes me happier than spending hours foraging through antique shops and thrift stores, only to find something like this:

 sitting at the bottom of the pile, with a price sticker that reads $3.  *Watch LadyC do a spastic happy dance*

"You must be", said the cat, "Or you wouldn't have come here"

You're talking about the old advertising lighters?  I don't have many of those, and the ones I do have are either really old Winston stuff, from my Grandpa, or Camel stuff from the late 60's on.  Most of what I have are more decorative, like this:

Hard Rock Cafe Jean Jackets:  Myrtle Beach, Cancun, Las Vegas, Key West (my life-long friend came over wearing the Key West One.  I said to him:  "let me take your jacket" and I literally meant it.  We still joke about it to this day).

 

I've learned that whenever I decide something with kindness, I've usually made the right decision.

When I try a new beer, I always keep the bottle. I wouldn't hazard a guess as to how many I have. I also put liquor bottles and other interesting glasses with them, on top of my kitchen cabinet. Years ago I ran rope lighting around them, it looks kinda cool when the kitchen is otherwise dark and I turn on the blue light.

Cool booze bottles make for neat looking candle holders, too

I'm very close to running out of room, good thing I slowed way down on my drinking.

When or if I move, I get the feeling quite a few of them will be thrown out.

That just gives you an excuse to start over.
