yesterday i was bleating about collecting and the fallout from same. in my case, i just own a bunch of stuff. now, if there was a way i could sliver down my interests to just one thing, perhaps the piles and boxes and bags would disappear [donating, freebay, selling, etc.]
mercifully, design observer is going to assist me in this goal. i am going to enjoy other peeps’ collections and get rid of mine. and btw, i could read design observer 24/7. http://www.designobserver.com here’s some new, insanely weird stuff they’ve dredged up for enjoyment:
pocket protectors [http://www.pojman.com/PP/pocket_protectors/pocket_protectors.html]
pencils [http://www.brandnamepencils.com/] from all over the world.
http://www.leadholder.com/ [not a collection per se, an informational site about everything you always wanted to know about drafting pencils but were afraid to ask.]
http://www.uniformfreak.com/ [some of the flight attendant uniforms on this site ROCK. worth a squint just to czech out braniff international.]
