As a child you might remember having a fascination about collecting a certain toy. I know I did, for some reason I loved teddy bears. All kinds from panda bears, polar bears to your standard brown bear. I’m not sure how it got started,but I remember I collected teddy bears until I was probably a teenager. Now my collection has turned into makeup, shoes and antique perfume bottles. Collecting an item can be a great hobby if you have a healthy grasp on it. Remember friends don’t go crazy…everything in moderation!
Why collecting items is good for your soul? It’s exciting and gives you sense of being and a new passion. Whether it’s seeking out the latest super hero collectible, to hitting local antique stores for that unique perfume bottle. In a world that has unfortunately become less inactive, collecting something gets your body moving. I get chills seeking out my new find at local antique stores. I have found most of my perfume bottles either at local antique stores or have received them as a gift. If you’re a guy or gal that is hard to shop for having a hobby is also great because your loved one now has an idea of what to get you as a gift. It can turn out to be a great investment as well. Who knows, grandma’s dishes she collected and you inherited could now be worth a pretty penny. Now go seek out your passionate find!!! Happy collecting!
