My place and yours... collections

I stumbled across this lovely blog last night and just had to take part in this weeks 'My place and yours' which is all about collections. I am a chronic bargain hunter and as such I have amassed a good many collections. I am constantly buying, selling and reselling stuff... lucky my beautiful fiance is an vintage lover also.
A few of the things I collect are....

Kitch ceramics... and cheesy jesus stuff. My favourite is the dodo gravy jug which my MIL bought me.

 Brooches.. I always want more brooches!

And Vintage Sideboards. I have four and I love them all SO much. This one I got whilst working at Indigo Junction- for some reason it didn't sell, so I worked in exchange for it! It makes me happy every time I look at it. It's so sexy, in a 60's teak veneer kind of way!

I also collect chairs (I LOVE chairs), vintage frocks & handbags, old tins, vintage lamps,  enameled things, tea cups, old stamps (the kind you ink, not postage stamps), old bottles, vintage games and fisher price toys, vintage books with cool covers and of course... golden books.

What do you collect & why? You can see more fabulous collections over at Hello Owl!
