Plenty of people have collections. Some of us start as kids and try getting every Barbie or matchbox car we can. Other times, we develop an interest as we grow and base our collection on that. If you want to get started, check out some of the most interesting objects to start collecting!
Whether it’s old coins, quarters, or foreign money, this collection is fun. It’s also pretty easy to start and is very versatile. You may find old coins that you haven’t seen or learn a bit of history as you acquire older coins.
If you’re interested in traveling and other cultures, collect foreign money! It’s easy to get your hands on if you’re always visiting different countries. As a bonus, it’s an interesting object to start collecting because it relates to another land!
There’s a name for everything, including people who collect matchboxes. Phillumenies collect anything related to matches including matchboxes and labels. Luckily, you don’t need the most valued matchbooks to make some cash! Sometimes, old restaurant matchbooks are worth something.
Why not collect old toys? After all, they don’t make them like they used to. Embrace your inner child and think of what toys interest you the most. Do you love dolls ranging from the porcelain variety to plastic? Or maybe you’re into superheroes! Some common toy collections include:
- Action figures
- Wind-up toys
- Beanie Babies
If you’re collecting toys, your options are pretty broad. There’s so much to choose from – think of your favorite and go with that.
Start a collection that tells a story—literally! Some collect comic books because, with time, the best ones usually have a cash value. Of course, you could also collect comics because of your love for their art and way of storytelling.
There’s nothing quite like a vinyl record. Going to the store and buying a physical copy of music and putting your favorite song on repeat is fun! A lot of people collect vinyl records. If you’re a music lover, you may already have a pile of your records sitting in storage. Why not add to it? Every collector starts because they have a deep love for something!
