Just wondering what you guys/girls collect. Anything strange? How large is your collection? Any unique items? Expensive collections? Or cheaper ones?

Keychains from colleges and universities. I still have not put them up for display in my apartment. I have been here since January. I have been able to put on display my other collection: shot glasses. The most interesting one I have has the seal of the University of Utah. Interesting because until the '70s, Utah was a "dry" state (no alcohol).

I worked with a guy who did collect Happy Meal toys.
When I bough my old Lincoln, I found a Grimace toy under the driver seat when I was vacuuming out the car.
I gave it to him and he was thrilled!

I take it you have Barnaby Conrad’s coffee table book about Pan Am. If so, I supplied some bag tags used as illustrations.

I used to collect baggage tags. Had tons.

Now I don’t collect anything other than memories.
