    Wow, great question Ethan. I collect old lamps and epergnes. I have also been accused of collecting shoes, but that's another story  :-)

    Don't ask me why, but I like collecting little porcelain ladies.  Some of them are made to be bells and some aren't.  They are so pretty and have so many delicate features!

    For awhle I collected antique woman's accessories and sold them on Ebay. I would go to estate sales and find the most beautiful hats, hankies, gloves, brushes, mirrors, hat pins and more.

    I collect Coca~Cola memorabilia. I have been collecting since I was about 5 years old when my aunt gave me my first antique Coke bottle. Since then, I have collected thousands of items from vintage vending machines to antique ads from old TIME magazines. 99% of the items that I have are authentic and have all been appraised.  I keep it as a 'all else fails' money source, yet enjoy it thoroughly.

    I have always loved the advertising schemes that Coke used in their campaigns which I believe is what got me collecting in the first place.

    I don't know why but I've always had a obsession with bottle caps.  I love making them into jewlery.
