What do you guys collect? If anything.. My list is endless so I thought I'd share some stuff with you.

I collect Elliot bears.. which are basically a cheap Me2U but in my opinion cuter! And they're elephants :D :D :D :D

Candles, I have around 300 Ornamental candles :) It's the thing that everyone buys me for birthdays and xmas when they can't think of anything else. On of my favourites is a candle that actually looks like a teddy bear with a little hat and coat on.. very cute. I have loads ranging from standard coloured candles, to 2000 millenium candles and also things from gift shops, for instance I visited an aquarium and came away with this beautiful candle that had the engravings of a nice sealife scene around the base. If anyone were to light any of my candles I think I'd sit and cry.. Lol

And now for my favourite collection.. Daggers - oh hell yeah baybeh! I fully intend to obtain a license to allow me to buy bigger swords and keep a lot more than I am allowed to now.. But my small collection of 4 is a good start. I have one pretty basic standard sword and 3 daggers :) once I've obtained a license of course I will extend to buying samurai swords, dual blade, throwing knives, movie replicas and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. You can buy daggers without a license depending on the size of the blade. When i get them back out of storage I'll take a pic of them and post it for you all :)
The next dagger I want to get is this one:
Attached File  dagger2.jpg   35.52K   1 downloads
How beautiful is that!? :D16: This one will cost me $32 which in GBP doesn't work out to be any more than £20 (I think.. I don't keep track of the exchange rate lol) but I would be willing to pay up to £50 for this beauty.

Another one I have my eye on is this:
Attached File  dagger.jpg   65.46K   1 downloads
set me back £50.. worth it!

Dagger collecting is an expensive collection but I fully intend to have an entire wall of my bedroom dedicated to displaying these beauties and one day.. I will have :D

SO yeah, what do you guys collect?

i have so many keyrings i dont keep them together.. most are in bags under my bed but there are a few floating around on hooks down here (coz i've not yet put them in the bags)

and yeah.. keyrings are keyrings.. no two are alike...

i just only collect ones with place names on them.. not just pictures or cute stuff or names etc.

I have absolutely no collections anymore.

I think I'm going to start collecting Supernatural (The TV Series) stuff.

And Supernatural stuff, like unexplained mysteries, ancient books and so on.

And my mum loves anything to do with Royalty.

You would love Cumbria, there are so many 'ghost' stories surrounding the entire county. Muncaster castle is one of the most haunted in the country apparently :D I'm sure Most Haunted did something here.. We have loads of folklore stories about people disappearing on certain parts of roads and things like that.. I actually believe I have a few books on the mysteries surrounding Cumbria :) much fun.

I may start collecting Supernatural stoof too.. starting with Dean :D16:

I used to collect TY Beanie Babies... but only the bears ( except a few which are like the 9/11 set which is a dalmation, german shepheard and a bear but the set is lush.. I started Collecting them when i was about 15/16 but i havent bought any new ones for about 8 years or so... However i do have a few rare bears like Britannia and Osito ( hes a mexican exclusive ).. i also collect Chihuahua teddies, Me to you, Wow Trading cards ( just so i can have more exclusive stuff in game ) and some other stuffs... i did collect all my horse magazines and books but i left them behind in my old house :( mainly because u can always go back and refresh your memory on the stuff u learned years ago from the magazines ( ive now started to get another slow collection of them again since i have my ponys )

I also collect Enchanticas.. my Frav is my Dragon Dagger which well u wouldnt think it was a dagger unless u knew it was there

Oooh i have a few....

DVD's are my main ones.... I dont REALLY have a genre... but if i HAD to pick one I would go with horror... but i proberly have a dvd for all moods... funny... romantic... scary.... the list is endless! Although I do have a few boxsets i could watch time and time again.... Sons Of Anarchy (mmm Jax)..... True Blood (mmmmm Bill.... or Eric... or jason... Ummm where was i....) Oh... and Supernatural (Mmmm dean)

Then theres books.... Pretty much the same as films... but horror and true stories are my fave.

And finally

im into anything to do with ghosts/spirts (and before you say thats just silly... then thats your outlook) Anyhow..... Anything i can find like stories... pictures... videos.... im interested in reading/watching :D17:

I don't think that is silly at all.

I have a passing interest in the Supernatural. Am going on a midnight tour of St Mary's Square in Edinburgh next month, and even down to the dungeons beneath the city...at night! Fabby!

That sounds amazing, I've done some of the underground city when I was up there but I bet its amazing at night - am well jealous!

You can make mistakes in life but it is how you deal with them that makes you a better person or a worse person.

That's a really amazing knife. I have a few but I don't collect them, per'se. I have a Kalinga and some machete's and a few swiss army knives.
No keyrings other than the one im using at the time, but that sounds interesting. 
I do collect silver rings for fingers and toes, coins, old bills, movies, books, vinyls. Im also a amateur photographer so I also collect my own snaps.
I must be the first one to post here for over a year.......
