Like probably alot of you guys and gals here, I collect records and other music related paraphenalia.. but is there anything that you guys collect that may seem a little odd to the average punter?

Something that I have collected for a long time are Pez dispensers. I love Pez dispensers because they are fun and colourful. I also remember getting a Pez dispenser at the end of each month if I was good, so I only have great memories of them. It's also one of those things that you can get your whole family in on, and I frequently find dispensers left in my letterbox from a relative that picked it up at a garage sale or market. There really is a thrill of the chase to finding pez dispensers Razz

Anywho, I have lots of Pez displays around my house as I try to display my collection in a way that's different to just putting them up on a shelf.. One of which is inside and around my alien head:




So what do you collect?

I used to collect model cars in 1:18 of scale, mostly cars from the 50s and 60s. After moving to a new flat I had no more room for the big and heavy show case and I sold most of the models on Ebay.
Now I just have a handful of models left, like a 55 Chevy Pickup, a 1952 VW Beetle, a Willy´s Jeep and a very sweet Citroen 2CV and a Harley Davidson Sportster.

I swapped over to collect guitars lol! - by now I got 8, the 9th - a Telecaster with Bigsby needs to be built together and the 10th is an old German Jazz guitar from the early 1950s which needs a complete restauration. Jobs for the long and dark winter evenings coming. Wink

I used to collect Archie comics even though I thought they were stupid and unfunny geek . Now all I collect are guitar picks.

Theres at least 5 times more than that scattered around my room and I lose at least one a day. Now I get to add a Setzer pick to the collection! Very Happy

I also collect guitars. Here's my collection:

Next addition will be an old Fender Bassman. My guitar dealer is going to make me a good offer, cause I'm one of his best customers Wink

I always wanted the 1:18 Aston Martin Vantage from let's say 1992. Or my first car the 1978 Honda Civic.(both probably never made)
...oh and the devil's car from the movie The Car.
Somehow I ended up buying guitars and stuff...
And just like Brett, I try to collect €€, but the end of the month all is gone...

My friend gave me a pick from when he went to see Tom Petty that the guitarist threw out (don't know his name) It has a cartoon of Tom Petty on it from when he was on The Simpsons. (see avatar<----) and of course I can't find it!!! But heres what it looks like. (not my pic)

The only picks I've caught myself were at Led Zepagain concerts. I have about five but they're not very rare to have.
My favorite pick though is this Dunlop one.

The 13, dice as teeth, hearts as eyes, spade as a mouth. Just seems like something Setzer would use.

I collect Hornby model trains and whisky. Only problem with the whisky is, that the collection doesn't manage to get too big - they have to be tasted a well drunken
