Scores and Collections

One great part about collecting something is going on the hut for what you love. Sometimes, if I’m really lucky, I can find a bunch of things all at once. This happens a lot at things like flea markets and estate sales. Someone’s collection will be up for sale and it, or at least a part of it, will catch my attention.  In cases like this, I make a big score – a tonne of cool things at once.

Another great thing about collecting is when I manage to build up a collection of interesting, similar things through years of hard work. Usually, I don’t notice that I even have a collection until I stop and think about it. I will then take the time to get the items of interest all together so I can look at them in the context of each other.

That’s what this page is for: to just have a place where a lot of weird, intersesting or similar things can all be seen together. Sometimes, one oddball kit is neat, but a gaggle of them is really kind of fun.
