    Just out of interest do we have any collectors ?

    Not hoarders who keep rubbish but collections of things, tea spoons & tea towels from places you've been that kind of thing.

    I'm a collector of (we should have said was don't anymore) old football programmes and Spartans memorabilia etc.
    Also used to 'acquire' branded beer glasses from our travel with the footy, there still in the loft.

    Reason I ask we got in from pub last night and caught the end of this programme 
    and was well impressed with this collection:

    As kids we used to go around the pubs collecting different beer bottle tops so it struck a cord with me, better half was quick to pour scorn on my admiration "don't even think about it"


    The guy with the railway station in his garden was amazing, staggering collection of railway items and even better petrol station item collection.
    Makes you wonder where they get it all from, and how much they spend.
    Have a look in the BBC iplayer or catch up.










    No doubt there will be the obligatory humourous answers to my question of what do you collect.

    I watched that programme, what pathetic people they were. Had to move house because they needed space for the beer cans. I would lay odds on when he retires there is no way he will downsize as he said he should. Railway, Petrol paraphernalia not only taking over the house but the garden too. Their OHs must be saints to put up with it or desperate to stay with that sort of person who obviously think more of their collections that their relationships.

    I've got a set of scales from the 1880's, missing some of the weights though. I'm also going to get this paper press thing below for free. Does anyone know what it is actually for???
