Collectibles A - Z

By

A collectible can be anything, really, from a "throwaway" piece of paper (ephemera) to an object made specially for collecting (limited edition). People also collect toys from childhood, expensive artwork, antique furniture, glassware, and holiday decorations. The list can go on forever, but the basic idea is that if something is out there, someone probably collects it!
