    I love your collection!! I collect only a few I wish I had that many. What’s funny is I know quite a few Naturists to do the same thing it must be a trend. Any others here?

      I have quite a few Superman comic books from the artist Curt Swan. I always felt he was the best!

              Most people would not call my collections toys, but get great enjoyment using my tools. I have mechanics tools, electrical tools, plumbing tools, and woodworking tools. I also collect salvaged lumber and have enough 100 year old maple flooring to do my entire house. I also have two of a lot of things because I own two homes a three hour drive apart.

                Omg, that’s a lot of toys. I still have some of my sons Star Wars stuff in the Attic. He’s not interested in it now but after we’re gone he’ll rediscover it when he’s cleaning out our stuff. I have a lot of PEZ I gathered years ago. I’m wavering between throwing them out an leaving for the kids to figure out what to do with them. I used the words ‘gathered‘ Because I just bought them and stuck them in a box whereas being a collector is much more purposeful.

                  I don't do any pez or star wars however if you have original star wars stash in the attic somewhere, it's worth tons of money especially if it is still in the card package, we are talking $10,000. for one action figure, I am not a collector so I can't tell you which characters are worth more but the ones at the start are the ones sought after

                    I've come to the conclusion that collecting stuff is a mistake.

                    I've accumulated a large number of 1:24 and 1:18 scale diecast cars. Some of them were gifts, but a lot of them I bought. I rationalized at the time that they were a lot cheaper than 1:1 scale cars. Now I am pondering severely pruning the collection down to a few favorites and taking the rest to a consignment store to get rid of them.

                    I also have a lot of books. Those are easier to get rid of as they are not subject to being damaged by being put in boxes and transported. The local library will take them and will sell the ones they don't want for their collection.

                    I also suffer from sentimental attachment to my old bicycles. I'd like to buy a new road bike with disc brakes, but I'd have to choose what to get rid of to make room in the shed.

                        I've been a "car guy" my entire life. My wife joined my passion and we were on the Board of Directors for several non-profit clubs/agencies for charity car shows, we'd buy and sell lots of cars and trucks and parts to our friends up north who were having a hard time finding rust-free projects and parts. We've had more adventures because of cars than most people have in a lifetime. I also collected gas station and Route 66 memorabilia because it reminded me of my uncle's ATLANTIC station when we were kids, and riding halfway across the US in the back seat of the family car to go on vacation every summer as a kid... Sunday drives out to the country or a cool old tourist trap / scenic attraction...
                        Sadly, all of my "little country junkyards" are long gone and also since moving to Louisiana back in 2015, we have really fallen off the "car guy" train. Katrina and "The Great Baton Rouge Flood of 2016" wiped out a LOT of cool old cars and trucks and stashes of parts cars and parts... Health issues, financial issues, etc. have all taken their toll too. We're spending more time doing landscaping and fixing up the house here though. I can say that I've done more nude gardening / landscaping than I've ever done "car guy stuff" nude, so there's that!
