I was curious what else everyone here collects aside from the obvious tiki-related epherma.

Personally, I collect the following:
1. Records (yes, even non-Tiki ones)
2. Books (mostly science fiction, mythology, etc.)
3. Drunken pink elephants
4. Movies

I used to collect:
1. Comic books
2. Stamps (grandma forced it on me)
3. Baseball cards

> 3. Drunken pink elephants

I used to collect these too, until I was finally caught sneaking into the circus with a gallon of rum and a can of spray paint.

I collect SHELLS! Since I was 8 years old and my dad got stationed in Okinawa! Funny you should ask, because yesterday I found one of the greatest ever, a Sunrise Shell. And trust me you would have thought I was an 8 year old the way I was jumping up and down on the beach!

I also collect Royal Copley ceramics, formerly made in my parents hometown and oriental stuff. Anyone who visits and manages to come to my house may well decide I collect too much!

I would love to see some photos of peoples cool collections!

among other things...

original Otis Lithograph magic posters. problem is, the one I have pictured above is an 8-sheet... making it about 9 feet tall. never mind the fact that restoration, mounting and framing will cost a ton, so will a new house with 10ft ceilings! sadly, more than 1/2 of my art is in some sort of storage because of no wall space or no cash to frame it.

I have way too much bar-ware including the elusive drunk pink elephants! I still pick up any character bar-ware I find. Collection currently includes, rooster's and camels and circus animals galore... too many to list. Let's just say I have a lot of items to drink from and not a drop of booze in the place.

& a whole collection simply known as made me smile!

Original Movie Lobby Cards. I have a couple of nice Russ Meyer ones and one from the Elvis movie 'Loving You' among others. I think I'd like to get more Elvis ones.

1.Records - LP's, 45's, 78's... running out of room to put them...

2.Tiki Mugs (duhhh!) - mainly newer ones - Munktiki, Tiki Farm, Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily, Shag, and a few vintage ones are in there too, like a Trader Vic's Tepco skull mug, etc...

3.Sports Memorabilia - not a whole bunch, but I do have a few rare things, like a Michael Jordan autographed baseball, from when he quit basketball and played minor league baseball.

4.Things that annoy and irritate my girlfriend - see items 1 through 3 listed above.
