I used to collect matchboxes. They are all in the loft. Think I must find a similar lunatic to pass them on to.

Now I collect empty glasses....

OH collects football programs.. I'm sure they will go the way of the matchboxes.

I collect fabric. Stupid, I know, but I have a huge box of it. Some day I'll make a massive scrap quilt with it all, but in the meantime it sits in a box. I also collect glass. Not bought any since we moved here, but when we're in Adelaide next month I intend to stop by the leadlight store my friend's partner works in.

That's just it, they take up too much room. I used to be really bad a de-cluttering but have got better. I even chuck things out now

I know what you mean, I did think about ebaying mine but I just couldn't. They don't seem to be going for much on there these days.

I have a lovely little white Steiff bear that would probably fetch a tenner as it is a low end of the range bear and I have a ginger Steiff kitten called Minka which would go for about 15 quid.

It's nice to know that Im not the only collector of bears.

I do have a 1940s Eastern European bear, hes quite big with fake leather patches on him, I love him - hes my favourite and is coming with me.

Here is a piccie of him.
