    Signs, not street signs. But the ones you see on buildings. (Fallout shelter, no trespassing....) Stuff like that.

    Records, love the sound of vinyl.

    Old hand drill bits, not sure how that one got started.

    Logo t-shirts, been waiting on a new two cow garage shirt.

    Pocket knives, thanks to my dad.

    Oxygen.... Can't seem to get enough of the stuff.

    How about motorcycle plates, I have a couple somewhere.

    I think I still have tags from my old van too.

    Got into collecting vinyl a little over a year ago. 90% is rock and pop from the 60s to the 80s.

    I don't really collect anything. In fact, I do my darndest to lighten my load. I've got about 40 bikes, but with the exception of a couple personal riders, I consider them as raw materials. Still, I feel that I have too much. I try to adhere to the Tyler Durden principle.

    All summer I was hunting for vintage tiki glasses and other Hawaiian souvenirs. Now I'm looking for vintage aquarium decorations.

    I have no idea why. I've never been to hawaii and I dont have an aquarium... I guess I just love that era of stuff.

    Started picking up brass garden hose nozzles a few years ago. Then I made a display holder out of scrap wood. I keep finding different ones. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Only a couple of duplicates in there.
    Succulents are another guilty pleasure.

    I usually collect postcards from different countries where I've been. I already have postcards from Australia, Great Britain, France, Spain, Turkey, Russia and a lot of different ones. I'm also really passionate about learning languages. I'm learning Italian now and I'm planning on going there to visit the Italian language school http://fda-sanremo.com/ And I hope to get a postcard from Italy too.
