Keeping a collection from your childhood years can mean one of two things. Either you still have items you used to collect, or it means you're like me and are still working on the same evolving collection you've had since you were 6. Normal adults still collect Hot Wheels right? Right?
The art of curating a collection over that long of time period is quite a feat. Once you grow older and acquire your own living space, you quickly realize you don't have room for all the things you wish you did. My own collection has been sold to pay for many different things over the years, but I still retain one giant glass jar of Hot Wheels that sits out on display.
They serve as a reminder to not take life so seriously and as an added bonus, provide quick child entertainment for friends who come to visit with toddlers in need of something to play with. Do you still collect the same things you did when you were little? Neat rocks? Concert tickets? Share your treasures below!
