    Just be thankful for the 'heads up'. Don't compromise Mark & Sue:confused:. These are YOUR polishing cloths you're choosing to discard;)?
    Yeah I don't know what Sue & Carole spoke about but I guess you guys have understood the results of the discussion:p;).
    Kombi polishing cloths:):D:cool:.
    Cheers

    Nothing wrong with that :eek: ...... I do ALL the ironing in this household and they're easy compared to some of the female clothing I get to enjoy ironing :confused:

    Wasn't intentional but ended up with a collection of 70+ peak caps & some bucket ones as I used to hate wearing hats of any type o_O ...... have given some away and using them now with 59 @ last count either never worn or in use.
    Most of these were obtained during the 12 years working in IT :cool:

    Will have to check on the T-shirt & polo shirt collection :rolleyes: ...... the Mrs gets really pi$$ed with them as nearly all have a logo or print of some sort on them :eek:

    This is a couple of items from an inherited collection. Lynne's Grandfather, like so many returning to Australia, brought back trench souvenirs from The Big One '14 to '18. They got handed down and ended up here. And, no, I'm not wearing them to the next All German Day. Besides they are too small!

    Sewing machines, I have recently moved and had to downsize to 12. I have since bought another one, just couldn't leave it in the local Op Shop.
    I have 8 set up that I use regularly.

    I also collect Aroids, Philodendrons my favourite. I just cannot get enough of them and love to find that rare one. So cheap up here. I have 3 of the 'Holly Grail' Variegated Monsteras. One just sold on eBay for $1,200, I paid $30 each.

    Speaking of plants . I grow and collect Carnivorous Plants. Mainly Nepenthes (pitcher plants), though I do also grow and collect Venus Flytraps, Sarracenias (trumpet pitchers) and Drosera (sundews).

    Here's a few of my Nepenthes.

    Yes. That DC variety. Takes a lot, as you are well aware.

    Also used to brew a few beers (though haven't done so for a while as my keg fridge died and I haven't had money to spend on a new one). I'm sure there are a few home brewers on here, so that's probably another thread.

    Anyway the reason I raise this is ... the whole collecting and other hobbies thing is a bit interesting to me (I love old stuff, garage sales, op shops and upcycling things) and its really interesting to:
    1) see that there are a lot of people on here who are of this ilk (whatever you collect); and
    2) see the parallels that exist between VW people, plant people, home brewers, and no doubt other hobbyists/collectors.

    Let's keep this thread going people. What else do you guys collect?

    Hotwheels. That way I can have garage like Jay Leno all on one wall.
    Started as VWs, then Porsche's, then muscle cars, then hotrods now there's tooned, Japanese classics and sets. I'm not an addict, addicts go to meetings...;)

    Only had 1 slot car chassis which originally had a Alfa Romeo (looked E Type like) body but changed the body over to a Neptune Racing Cooper S which had been bought @ the Neptune Service Station @ Tuggerah NSW ..... used it @ the Slot Car track in Parramatta when the pocket money allowed :eek:

    I also have Tshirts that are too sentimental to discard. I like this idea though...:cool:

    So here's RIFF RAFF - got him back in 1979 as a present from the 3 Audit Clerks I was working with @ the time & who I affectionately referred to Riff Raff (they all females and enjoyed ganging up on me :p) ...... present was to remind me of them while I was travelling Europe for 10 weeks with Continental Camping Tours (CCT or constantly changing tents :eek:;)).

    Wanted to do something different so decided I buy patches of the places I had been to in my travels and cities in those countries if I could find a patch I bought it then sat down on a rest day just before the tour ended and tacked them onto the T-Shirt ..... plan was to remove them and put them on a board and glass panel them to hang on a wall :confused: got sidetracked somewhere between then and now. Only ones of places I've been to and not found a patch is Papeete (Tahiti) and Taiwan - Taipei, Toroko George.

    May have to re shoot as didn't think the pictures that blurry :cool:
