There's a ton of cast iron cookware in my garage I stored there when my mother passed. Muffin pans, cornbread pans, skillets from 6 to 20 inches , dutch ovens, griddles. All sizes and styles collected from her family and many dating back to the mid 1800s. There they sit with little interest from the kids, they nuke nowdays.

I collect tokens. RR, subway, gaming, advertisement, bus, company script, premiums, commemorative, just about anything odd, weird and scarce.
Tokens for free samples of cereal, soap, tobacco, gum, and crackers from companies like general mills in the 30s.
They get tossed in a drawer forgotten or lost because they're not important.
They don't have much value but they're interesting to me.

That's really sad. I love cast iron cookware and use mine all the time. I have a 6" and a 12" skillet. I'd like to find a good dutch oven in cast iron. My mum has a two burner griddle that's supposedly supposed to be passed to me someday. Yeah, it takes a little more prep to get them seasoned first, but boy are they worth the effort when it comes to cooking.

Mark, that is a shame your kids don't see the value of the Cast Iron but, it'll be a treasure for someone to find in time.
I'll have to keep you in mind when it comes to tokens. I've ran across a few within my boxes of "stuff". From the ole wooden nickles to the small metal tokens for bus lines. Your welcome to have them once I run across them again sir.

I remember seeing Franciscan Starburst dinnerware from time to time or like china. Looks to be 50's style with the stars and line design. That stuff was pretty popular for awhile but, as you know antiques and collectibles are crazy, going in and out of style per-say and prices jumping and falling. Not having collected the stuff for awhile I haven't a clue what's in and what's out nowadays. Bauer and Hull were my favorites and I seen those climb and drop. No matter though, I collected it all because I liked it and used it not based on it's value really.

I collect watches.  I've always had a fascination with them my entire life.  My collection has dwindled because I am focusing on quality over quantity.  I'm not in the realm of Rolex or Omega, but I do have some nice pieces.

Those are some nice one's sir. I collected some Camel watches for awhile LOL! But seriously I did but, that's about the limit of my pocket book and used coupons to get them. Love old pocket watches but, sadly can't afford to collect them either. But, I did finally find one reasonable enough to purchase to carry. After eons of wanting one I found a Waltham from 1906 with a silveroid case. Nothing fancy but, she's without cracks and runs fine.

Here's the only Potentate's fez I was able to find during my fez phase.
This is one of about 150 or so...

Well damn it, my thinly veiled ploy to see a pic of you wearing a fez didn't work.

Love that pattern/shape!

My wife collects china, and found a nearly-complete 6-piece basic set of Starbust, plus s&p shakers and coffee service at Savers... didn't know what it was but sank what turned out to be a smart $40 investment...

Kyle, You travel light, that's good.

I wish I traveled light.   This is a thread about collecting, after all.  If you believe that my collections of random knowledge and words are noteworthy, you should assume I put no less effort into the tangible, heavy stuff that actually takes up space.   Laughing Typewriters, guns, houseplants, chrome coffee objects, and recently--a few fountain pens. Then, there's the pipes and tobacco.

:quasihoarder:

PS, I love the cat collection picture at Yak Palace on laundry day.  I love you   A classic!  Oreo is so damn tiny in that one!

Cool

I haven't been a serious collector of anything (including pipes) since my teens, when it was vinyl. But I still seem to be "cleaning house" every few years, so obviously stuff still accumulates, however unintentionally. scratch

Yak , does that particular fluffy you're looking at happen to be a mainecoon?

I have had 3 mainecoons. The first an ex took during a rough split, the second I had to give to my cousin the last time I moved(which I will soon kidnap him back). And my last little munster is a mainecoon/bengal mix, so she's got the fires of hell brewing inside of her soft, (generally, refer back to hell fire a'brewin) lovable, and fluffy outer shell. Inside, a demon dwells. affraid

We have one but she was hanging out under the bed instead of socialising with
the kitty committee. The one in the picture's a Norwegian Forest Cat. Lady paid
a fortune for him & divorced her husband, who turned him loose to live on his
own -- which he did for a couple of years 'til Mrs. Yak found out about him. He's
a mellow old soul. Mr. Affectionate.  I love you

Sweet deal!!
I spent more than that on four salad/soup bowls.

Ok.
Here's a record I played on, back in 1993.
I'm wearing the Buddy Holly glasses.
And it's a terrible record.

HOWEVER -- if you are a dog : do not presume you have the run of the place
if you come visiting with your owner. The big cat will disabuse you of that
notion. Quickly and decisively.
