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.

Straight razors
Fountain pens
Matcha bowls
Analog photography equipment
Art

In all instances I’m looking for esthetically pleasing and functional items. I’m not looking for that needle in the haystack.
