    I would love to see pictures !
    I collect poultry antiques. I probably have gone too far, I have spent hundreds on collecting, magazines, old APA books (just got one from 1903!) feeders , really anything and everything poultry.
    What do you collect?
    EDIT:
    Since there was no interest on this Particular Topic, I broadened it to A General Antique thread!

    Not so much chicken related things, but when I was 18 and just moved out, my mom sent me all the junk out of her cupboards, including a milk glass ashtray, with a dogwood flower in the center. Just to give me something to focus on when I was in second hand stores, antique store, I'd look for milk glass and slowly added pieces. Now I'm running out of room so not buying anymore.
    Also had a landlady and her sister who moved to AZ. When they were packing they gave me several pieces of copper, that they had bought decades ago in Europe. I've added a few of my own, both old and new. Running out of room there as well. Lol
    I'm thinking my next collection will be antique/collectible green glass dinnerware, nothing matching.
    Here's a picture of one end of my kitchen:

    I love the picture of the kitchen. I have always loved that glass too, I have one peice that was my Moms. I also really like the way you have displayed it.

    To the OP I had that Raggedy Ann book when I was a kid [​IMG] Still have my doll. I have a few antique pieces but no room to display them in this tiny place. Hopefully someday [​IMG]

    Keep the pictures coming [​IMG]

    During my first marriage, my ex and I were antique dealers. When we split, I started selling at antique flea markets, then auctioning. Rightnow I had to downsize, so I collect only salt and pepper shakers, mostly figural. And any art that may catch my eye [​IMG]
