Dream Collections

We are all limited in what we collect by the small issue of funding but if money were no object what would you collect then?

I love Martinware saltglaze but you can keep your Coper and Rie

well, I found that the oddest question to answer. For me there are four parts to my collecting - the enjoyment of the hunt, the thrill of the find, the research, and then finally the 'where am I going to put the beautiful (in my eyes) item in my house?' question. Even if I had all the money in the world, I would still collect glass and still do it in the way I do it now (i.e car boots and flea markets and ebay finds) Embarrassed .
The only one thing I would buy if I won the lottery, would be an original Picasso Shrugs

I agree but the thrill of bidding at Bonhams might equal the excitement of an eary morning trudge through a cold,wet,muddy field

If funding was unlimited, I would buy whatever happens to capture my current interest. Note to self - keep some funds aside for the hoarding therapist. Sad

I've got one of those as well and as Occupational, Holistic and Speech therapists. Am waiting for a Drama therapist that I just won on Ebay to arrive but there is always room in the cellar for one or two more. Big Laughter

Now that is worring - me and Dan have very similar tastes.

Like free flying, I'd basically carry on collecting what I do now, but like Dan I'd add Martin ware to the list.

I certainly wouldn't be buying cars or watches and would still dress like a tramp lol!

But I would buy a MUCH larger house / mansion to house my collections and display them properly. Especially as my other large collection is carnivorous plants (Nepenthes) I have hundreds (if not thousands) which if left unchecked would like to grow about 5 Metres tall or more and some upto 4ft wide.
So yeh, a much larger house would be nice
