I collect ball caps. I like to wear hats and always have. Because of the big melon on my shoulders(7 5/8 hat size) I can tell you that one size fits all don't!I only wear Padres baseball hats because that's my team, but I like hats from all over. Whenever i house sit for my brother, he'll usually get me a hat from the event they attend like a NASCAR race of the likes. Last count, I had about 100 hats and that's after tossing a bunch. Of course, it could just be that I'm a pack rat and that I use the word collect to make it look legit.

I collect pig figurines, some stuffed pigs, and of course I have my two adorable potbellied piggies that I've had since they were piglets ten years ago. Potbellied pigs are good pets if you do the research before you get them. They aren't for everyone, and because these little pigs bond with their owners, can actually get very depressed and die when abandoned and dumped. I know I made a big commitment when I got my sweetie-piggies, because they can live for 25 years. But, I adore my little cuties, and they are very smart and seem to understand everything I say to them, as well as figuring out many things, too. My one piggie who has his own room, always pushes his dish over by the door when hes done eating so I can get it more easily for the next feeding time! LOL

I just love pigs. They live life with as much gusto as possible!

Shoes! ...or it may just be that I have such difficulty in throwing a pair away that I end up keeping them for years!

I absolutely love collecting true-to-form african-american figurines, and unusual jewelry. I love collecting stuff that makes a statement, I just wish more stuff was geared towards bbw's. like stuff that says something like "bbw's do it bigger and better". stuff like that

What a fun thread ! ! !
It's been educational to read about everyones collections.
I really don't *collect * any per se. I try to get a pair of earrings or some other form of jewelry in my travels, as a souvenir.
My biggest collection would have to be plants,I am a dyed in the wool plantaholic. No matter where I live or travel, I have to learn the plants I'm not familiar with.
Smiles

I'll say I collect guitars, that sounds better than saying I have no self control, and alot are considered collectable.

I also have lots of cows, small, large, plastic, wood, iron, stuffed, etc. They are all funny or weird looking cows , I never considered them a collection but I would have to say because of the number of them it is becoming one. I also don't know why I get cows , If I see one that looks unique (to me) I pick it up. There was a huge fiberglass cow from the top of a resturant on ebay, I actually bid on it until the price got too crazy. I really wanted to put it on the front of the boat and go out for a sail, then put it in the front yard (take a left and when you see the steer thats the house)... guess I can only dream now... someday :8.
