Why do people collect things?


I know a shopkeeper in my neighborhood who collects different types of pens and he is very enthusiastic about showing his collections to the customers. Also read about many people collecting different thing like coins, key chains, stamps etc. Always wondered; is there any psychological reason behind it?

    Very touching. Sorry to hear about the injustice you had to face in your childhood. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
