Post in Besides Beauty

Collections Other than Beauty?

I know many of us love to collect the perfume minis. I got the Prada Candy one, and it reminded me of my perfume bottle collection. I started with antique ones, and then branched off into minis, designers, anything special and pretty, until I have over 200. I don't display them currently due to space issues and, just , life...but that little bottle made me happy and also wonder what else do you all collect, besides your beauty hauls?

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

vintage cookbooks- like 40s 50s & 60s. I don't know who thought bananas, ham, and hollandaise was a good mix but there are some gems in them and I like looking at the pictures. I also collect vintage costume jewelry and dishes. I'm always on the hunt for interesting dishes and pyrex for my photography

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

OOOOOH are you a food photographer or do you just like photographing your dishes? Smiley Happy

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

I'm a food photographer! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

AAAAAAH fellow foodie! That's amazing! I have a DSL Canon Rebel T3 but I'm still learning. 

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

awesome!! the best way to learn is to just keep trying different things and shooting often. I hope you're having fun with it!

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

i love the vintage pictures in old cookbooks! some of them are painfully "politically incorrect" like in the Chinese food section, but they are so cool!

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Oh I collect tea cup and saucer sets! Funny how I thought of my swords and beanie babies first! Aaaaaaand none of those things actually make any sense together! Lol!

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Another cookbook fiend here!  I especially like old ones - from the 1800's up to the 1940's or so.  If you haven't read Charleston Receipts yet I highly suggest you do!

 

I also have an minor obsession with aprons and coffee mugs.

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Books and stationery. I cannot be trusted with a credit card around anything made of paper.

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

I love stationery too!  I look back at my various boxes and pads that I've collected over the years and it's so interesting to see my childhood tastes evolve. (Cartoon-themed, Disney to ballet slippers, florals, and now I actually have some grown-up quality writing paper like crane &co and some pre-printed with my monogram etc.) I  also still have all my sticker albums too. 

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

I have tons of books and stationery too.....and I can't say no to a nicely designed pen. -_-;;

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

perfume!...I love them and still collect them...so much that people are irritated about that I don't have space, but I still get more 

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

i know...I miss mine. I want to get a big curio cabinet someday to display them all... the bottles are so pretty! I love the ones I have from the 20's.

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

what?! that's amazing! where'd did they go since you miss them?

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Handbags and shoes.  Mostly Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel.  I also collect fragrances.  My husband would argue that there is nothing that I do not collect  Smiley Wink

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Yes to handbags and shoes too.  I guess I never looked at my my stash as a "collection" so to speak as I functionally make use of them. So I suppose I view them as part of my wardrobe. I do have a minor weakness for anything Louboutin. But you're right, it can be considered a collection Smiley Happy

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

I collect earrings and rings, i just love them started collecting shoes and bags too

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

I feel like I'm the only one here who's all lame collecting stamps and postcards. LOL To make myself "cooler," I'll just say that I have Disney stamps in my collection. Smiley Very Happy

 

That, and I'm juuuuuust starting to collect Ferragamo Varina flats - currently have 4 pairs! Smiley Happy

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Don't feel lame some stamp collectors have come across some real gems and if they are rare, they can be worth a lot of money!! Probably a better payday than a poor sucker like myself!! Get your collection assessed, you never know!! Oh and regarding the postcards, I sometime sendmyself a postcard from wherever I'm at back home and then I'll keep them in with the pictures from that trip.  So, yeah.. me tooSmiley Happy

Re: Collections Other than Beauty?

Hahaha, thanks for the consolation Smiley Very Happy I should get them assessed someday. Especially the Disney ones, I got them when I was 8 and have no idea how much they are worth.

 

The postcard thing is a great idea! I'm going to start sending postcards to myself too when traveling. Smiley Happy
