    What do Cyburbanites collect redux?

    For some reason the prior post did not come through. My wife hates my beer can collection (any old beer cans you want to get rid of, send my way, serious). So it made me wonder what do other Cyburbanites collect?

    MOD - please delete the earlier post. Thanks.

    Hair and underwear samples from every gi................Noooooo, I like to collect maps from different cities. I also like to collect beer bottles and grow flowers out of them. Currently got a beer collection going for my bar, but collecting and maintaining liquor is becoming a challenge unless I don't like to drink the liquor. I've got some beer cans laying around if you want them.

    I don’t collect anything right now. I wish I could collect art and wine. I like these items, and have some, but the finances are a little tight right now for a “collection” worth a durn

    Ive always grabbed rocks everywhere I go....I'm the reason they put those signs up that say "Enjoy your National Park, but please leave it here for others"

    I also collect foriegn money...but the way I do this is a bit different. While I havent travelled anywhere but the UK, Mexico, and around the US, I know a few people who do, and I always have them bring me back a coin or two.

    My biggest and most evolving collection, however is CDs. I love music and buy a new cd probably two or three times a month.

    I have a wine collection in my basement---about 20 cases at this point. All domestic.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    I have a collection of baseball caps. I also collect the state quarters issued by the U.S. Mint and a newspaper from any city that I visit.

    Not counting CDs, other than some maps I really don't have a collection. Moving around so much in the past few years has prohibited me from getting any real collection started. However, I will admit to being a big geek and collecting boxes and boxes of comic books when I was younger. That's okay because I've accepted and come to terms with my inner geek.

    As for future collections, I wouldn't mind getting a decent collection of art going. That is, if I can't make enough to start amassing Porsches.

    Records....lots and lots of records. Especially 60s rock, 80s new wave, and 80s and 90s punk.

    Due to be released in 2004, the new nickel will feature the existing profile of Thomas Jefferson on the front side and on the back side, Monticello and a representation of the Louisiana Purchase.

    I collect plants, NO not that type… (you wish). But I do have almost 20 plants now in my new apartment. Tonight I am getting a banana tree!
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    I used to collect the Dept. 56 North Pole Village houses and people. I still have it, but stopped acquiring any new ones when I ran out of room to display them all at Christmas.

    Most of the books I've ever owned.

    My son and I collect souvenir spoons when we travel. We started the collection with several spoons that a great-aunt had from her travels in the 50's and 60's.

    Actually, one will have the Louisana Purchase and the other will have Lewis and Clark. Monticello is already on the back of the nickel.

    Sounds like one for the ladies.


    Coins, wine, books, and art. I just made my first foray onto ebay to purchase a Leon Pescherert etching.

    No drugs or (really very much) alcohol, just collections:

    maps, architecture books, cds, pueblo pottery, talavera pottery, and glassware. I am pretty obsessive.

    Beer Can Collector Questions

    When collecting beer cans, do you collect full ones or empty ones? Is there an agreed position among collectors on this?

    If it's empties, are there any Australian cans you covet? PM me and I will see if I can track them down for you (it's the kind of research I would be prepared to give up some personal time for).

    Mine are empty... but I think I'll fill them with sand or something, 'cause they tend to fall with the summer winds.
    Australian beer? I just got a Foster's can...
    US beer? Bud (quite obvious), Schlitz, Guiness, Stroh's
    Canadian Beer, eh? Moosehead, Blue Star and Alpine.
    Most are german or european...

    Queen B: I have like 18 soda cans too. But my main collection is beer cans.

    I have a a few, Tooths KB Lager, Fosters Lager, Broken Hill, and Carlton are some I can remember. I never actively pursued Australian cans. I have just come across them over time. As with all cans, I prefer steel cans. I do have some with the beer still in, however, I have also had some cause leaking and rusting of the seam over time. It's best just to empty (read: drink) the beer.
