Some of my family and circle of friends (very few thankfully) , think that collecting diecasts is a bit 'strange' :giggle, so that got me thinking

Have any of your family/friends got a 'strange' collecting habit? :giggle

My sister collects Teddy Bears, all of one make "Russ", she has now got 82, her partner seems to buy her 1 "Russ" Bear every other week.

She will not collect any other make

One of my daughters collects porcelain dolls, my son colllects hats(basebal, football and basketball).

I've got a few friends who collect models, but none of them seriously.

Nobody in my family collects anything. The closest I have is another friend that has some RC cars, and likes to rebuild 1:1s. (His wife used to be ridiculously into beanie babies.)

My wife has an uncle (he's her great-uncle, in fact) that has a kickass (concour level) stamp collection. His Red Cross collection is the biggest collection of that theme in the whole country. Stamp collecting is big here in Brazil, maybe because we were the 2nd country (after England) to use stamps.

........" The first official central royal mail office was opened in England 1516.
Nearly 300 years later Sir Rowland Hill suggested 1835 that letters until the weight of a half english ounze (14.5 g)
should be carried for a uniform fee of 1 Penny.
The receiver had no longer to pay the postage fee, but the sender had to use stamps
5/6/1840
The first two stamps were issued: 1 Penny Black and 2 Penny Blue.
The second country which issued stamps was Brazil in 1843. It issued the so called Ox Eyes. ".......

Yup, that's us. And her uncle has all the Ox Eye's series and the Goat's Eyes series that followed. In fact, he has an exemplar of every stamp ever issued in this country.

My son collects diecasts Gee, I wonder who influenced him??? :giggle Actually, I started his collection before I started on mine.
Yeah, I wonder whom..... :lol

My son is not into collecting at all. He just likes to read and plays RPGs on the PS2. My wife on the other hand is a big time Anime fan and collects all sorts of Anime figurines.
