There are all sorts of people who collect all sorts of unusual items. When asked why, the best answer I've heard was that it is all part of our history.

Not a collector, but always facinated with the older small camper trailers. I love camping, have a late 50's I've camped in a few times. I see the ones that have been restored and just wish----.

Good as answer as any I guess.

Got a lot! Was into flea markets and Antique malls . But it all fell apart in 1999. To many shows on TV so people thought there stuff was worth a fortune. I kept all my wood decoys ,wood fishing lures , old traps. old R/R lanterns ,old rods and lots of reels. My honey has lots of glass all colors. The kitchen look like the 1930s. It's all a retirement plan.

Interesting. I don't really collect any one single item. I like antiques. Old hand tools, axes, copper and brass kettles are neat. I like my iron skillets too. Handmade chairs. Stuff that will still function, and yet as old as the hills. I have some old glass, more or less all of it is just a conversation piece.

This is one of my latest finds. From 1880's. We have our house decorated with antiques that we have collected over the last 30 years.

I am surrounded by 200 year old stuff every day. There are farms not far from me that were built in the 1400's.

Most of the great antique furniture in France has already been bought and sold many times, but I enjoy finding the little things that made a big difference in somebody's life back in the day.

I believe the covering for the wagons were a canvas made from flax

I have quite a collection of old tools. It started when I was 10 and my grand mother gave me the hand woodworking tools I watched my grandfather use in his shop. I have at least a few dozen old planes, draw knives, treadle grinding stone, all the timber framing axes, boring machine, slicks, etc... I also have a few of his old coal mining antiques from a mine he owned 'til about 1960.

If anybody has unique old woodworking tools, I might be interested if they are usable and something I don't have.

Worst things I've ever seen being being sold were a gravestone and GAR markers from graves.

That cannot possibly be true!
With as many "what is it" threads which you have opined that the item was a pig castrator, half of your entire collection would very likely be considered as a pig castrator by your own words. smile
