What else do you collect, or have you collected in the past?

Forgive me if this topic already exists (I couldn’t find find it). I guess it’s closely related to the hobby thread.

For me:
- Acoustic and Electric Guitars
- Valve Amplifiers
- Guitar Effects Pedals
- Vinyl
- CD’s
- Nikon Film Cameras And Lenses
- Raleigh/BSA bicycles
- Typewriters

I seem to go through periods of discovery and acquisition, followed by a period (at some point) of purging. Typewriters is the new thing, and while I envisage that I’ll follow the same cycle, it would be nice to already know what my favourite few typewriters are, and just buy them in the first place.

Re: What else do you collect, or have you collected in the past?

I definitely go through phases, but have in the past among other things collected wristwatches, fountain pens, sneakers, and books. I've never considered despite having a large number of vinyl albums and CDs to be collecting them, rather it's more a by-product of my love of music; in other words I buy an album because I like the group/music and want to listen to it and not because the album is rare or otherwise collectable.
