Quote from: RDPipes on August 10, 2022, 08:52:52 AMI think we're very close to the same sort, for when I collect anything I can't just stop at a couple.It can be a bad habit specially when one can't afford it. Several years ago I had to get rid of most my collectionsand it helped, mainly because I couldn't afford to replace them, LOL! There's a name for it, I can't recall it right nowbut, I had the same problem with alcohol, couldn't stop at just one. But, I haven't had a drink in over 20 years now, wish I could say that about my collecting. Just recently sold off my collection of over 300 pipes.
Quote from: LarryInMichigan on August 10, 2022, 09:04:04 AMI never liked alcohol, so that is not a problem. Chocolate may be another story. I have large collections of electric clocks, radios, and, of course, telephones. I also have about a dozen electric fans, some more than 100 years old (and working) and some art glass (largely Murano with a number of clowns). Larry
Quote from: LarryInMichigan on August 10, 2022, 12:01:41 PMI was at a friend's house once while the brother-in-law was visiting. He told me that he had a friend who collected wagon wheels and toothpick holders. Someone on this forum in the UK was posted that he knew someone who collected toilets. So I feel that I am not quite so weird or insane. As far as my house being a museum, precious few people I know have any interest whatsoever in what I have. One friend remarks when he comes over that he cannot understand why anyone would want to collect these things. He however, likes to collect Chinese junk snow globes, so who is more insane?Larry

Quote from: HarrySmith on May 08, 2023, 07:56:46 AMTo each his own. I was shocked several years ago when I started selling on eBay. There are collectors out there for absolutely everything! Anything you can think of has a collector, I too have done the same as others. Collecting books, glass, comics and then phones. Everything to the extreme. Much like you Ron that included alcohol. I had to give that up. This November will be 40 years. Phones are a harmless obsession. That's how I came up with Phoneitis, it fits me
