I dont collect anything really. And you cant really call my yoyos a “Collection”. Its more a bunch of random yoyos.

@abby
My sister used to collect stuffed animals. She would play with them for a while then just toss them in a pile and forget about it. She had like 60 something or more at one point. Crazy.

Scalps

I know a few people who collect knives and have always thought it was pretty neat. I always have a nice knife handy, but as a part of a Leatherman Wingman that I just take good care of. I would very much like to get a very small, very high-quality EDC style knife, but haven’t found one that seems comfortable to have attached to a keychain or my belt.

Any recommendations?


#9

I collect hotwheels myself. really cool hobby I’d recommend it.


#10

My gf collects rocks. way cheaper than my yoyos :wink:


#11

What era of hot wheels do you collect?


#12

I collect vintage video games. Atari, Nintendos, super Nintendos , Sega genesis,
stuff like that


#13

Petrified wood.

Now, it’s just yo-yos.

I used to collect figures of music celebrities. I tried to find really good ones like the McFarlane ones, but that dried up. I was working on decorating a music studio. I still have some great ones, Tupac, Eminem, Metallica, Slash, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and the list goes on.

I have a nice cube collection too, but it’s mostly 3x3s. I still play the cubes, but lost interest in the collecting aspect of it.

I have 9 guitars, but I don’t call that a collection. They are mostly bass, but electric, acoustic, travel size, and mainly encompass variety. I haven’t bought a new one in years.

Otherwise, in my lifetime, besides buying a lot of music, that sums it up.

rocks/gemstones unique sediment w/e you would like to say. Pieces…if you know what i mean. nice pieces. i collect ashtrays and pins as well, like pins that you put on your shirt, just to ellaborate on that.and i have a alright knife collection. And i used to collect old Baum books, like tales of Oz books and such, but my stoopid Ex took em all…


#16

Bottle Caps from micro brew Root and Birch beer, and hats


#17

Get a spyderco grasshopper or one of the other knives from their mini series. I have a bug, and its razor sharp and keeps its edge pretty well and is a great little package opener :slight_smile:


#18

Also if you have a low budget, check out chinese folder brands like sanrenmu, ganzo or Enlan&Bee (<$15). I personally own a sanrenmu 763 and a CRKT Ripple. The Sanrenmu is really nice and razor sharp, but I also like my ripple for its fast flipper deployment.

My main other collection is comics. I have thousands and thousands of bagged and boarded comics. Have a fairly extensive Magic the Gathering collection as well. Oh…and I guess I have a Transformers room in my house and a J.R.R. Tolkien room as well.
