    I collect butterfly postage stamps and all kinds of postcards. I also used to collect rocks and minerals and coins. I have kept those two collections but haven't added to them recently. Do you guys collect anything?

    What makes them really special to me is that all of them were found by either my dad or me.

    It differs. Some are pulled from scrapyards. Others I got in exchange for programming someones signs or just from a bus/tramcar depot if I'm very lucky (most companies prefer scrapping them instead of sell/give them away). And sometimes fire departments will let me take out the sign systems if they have old buses which they just cut/set on fire for practice.

    I collect keychains (28 so far, 26 unused) and playing cards. My oldest keychain is one I made in the 90s. Thing is, I don't know how to play any card games except war and solitaire...

    I don't know if my CD collection counts, but I have about 35 CDs, too. I refuse to download music unless it is only one song I like on an entire CD or a single. I mean a literal single song, too.

    Cool collections here.

    I do miss CDs. I still have some. I've got a battery-operated CD player so when the power goes out I can still listen.

    I collect things like books games and stuff but i never read/play any of em.
    I used to collect all kinds of crap as a kid, Like literally all kinds of crap mostly electronic waste. And led bulbs and that sort of stuff, i was really weird. I had this irresistible urge to disassemble everything. I'm trying to let go of this collecting thingy. I still feel the urge to collect every now and then. One day i will throw it all away, And just be free. I think thats the reason i collect things. To give it away one day. And feel free.
