    Bottle cap openers and paint can openers. Lots of them have advertising on them from companies long gone and they don't take up too much room.
    A small fossil collection from fossils around Indiana (mostly my dad's)
    I also "collect" locations of old railroad roundhouses that I find on google earth.

    There was an old railroad roundhouse that we used to play in growing up. When we got older it was perfect for paintball games we would have. It was demolished to make an expressway that runs over it now. It really was a cool place. There were also a lot of old coal mine buildings and offices that were on the site. It was eerie at times walking through there.

    Can't say I collect anything but bad habits and debt.

    I do admire those that do collect and share what they have.

    I love vintage cars. My buddy has a Cadillac, 1934 maybe, it is interesting to learn that it had power windows (hydraulic powered up/down) and rear seat heat. I thought rear heat was a "modern' thing, just goes to show you can always learn something.

    Dust bunnies! I didn't mean to collect them but it seems I have acquired a good size collection of them over the years of various sizes and shapes with subtle yet uninteresting differences in their composition. Unlike some collectors who have a dedicated room for their collections, mine are artfully interspersed throughout my house.
