But then I realized, I don't have a collection to display! I used to collect these cool wood boxes: I would get a new one each year we went to Destin. I went through all of the childhood collection phases such as Beanie Babies and other stuffed animals, legos/playmobil/action figures, and baseball cards. None of which I would want to display now, however. I think that's the main thing of it, what makes people want to collect something? My Mom collects glass jars, my old roommate collected scarves, and my current roommate collects plants. I've never really liked one certain thing so much that I look for it in different variations. I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for something cool to start collecting at the next flea market.
