I collect fishing net floats from all my beach travels.

Got about 80 to 100.

The holy grail of fish net floats are the Japanese glass globes.

Found one on Whidbey island WA., one of my most prized possessions.

Why??? I daydream about their solitary time in the ocean and their journey

Meh, I'm pretty sure you're an amateur. Johnco was the master. Hopefully, he's still with us, even if he doesn't visit and post any more.

Cool. I have 5-10 of the glass globe from when I lived in Japan. I have around 5 that are very small, lemon-softball sized, one that's a cylinder with grooves around each end and 2 that are very large (14-18", I think, they're all in storage). I also have an enormous, 9" diam and 15" long from memory, light bulb that fishing boats used.

Random photo that I found on the 'Net.

Actually, I think one of the big ones that we had (similar to the big one in the pic below) broke, but I still have the other which is a much darker blue glass. Also, there's an example of the cylindrical ones in the pic too.

Really, wow. We used to find those all over the beaches in Hawaii. I bet we had a dozen of them. Likely all thrown in the trash when we moved back to the mainland.

I have not even thought about them in decades.

I've got a collection of gems, minerals and rocks from my youth. I've added to the collection within the last few years - but I don't have any of it out on display. Building some wall mount display cases is on my list of things to do some day.

We even had a few red glass fishing net balls. Like many of my great treasures, they went to the trash when we moved. When we moved and average of every other year, we threw out a lot of crap.

I had a two foot tall stack of 12 cent Superman comics that were unceremoniously thrown in the trash.

Walt Disney comics.

From a very young age. My mom said I taught myself to read from the comics. I don't know how true this is, she may have just been laughing about my obsession.

I collected coins as a kid. I will still look at change just to see if there is anything that appeals to me. I will save wheat pennies.

I have several die cast cars but I'm picky at what I have.

Used to collect antique clocks. It all started when my grandmother born in 1896 gave me her mantel clock that had been in the family since the early 1800’s. Bought in Connecticut where most clocks in America came from. Had come down the Ohio River on an early riverboat. Numerous owners, quit working in the 1930’s. Sat in her attic till she went to a retirement home mid 70’s. I got it mid 80’s. In the meantime wife and I collected from all over the world. Then the internet hit and prices crashed. We had mostly lost I interest but decided to have the family clock restored. Only 2 places in US currrntly doing it. The bushings are all a rare unobtanium hardwood. Year later we get it back works like a champ.


So we had an estate sale of my wife’s parents last weekend. Her mom had been a major doll collector. Internet has killed that too. My wife was glad to get it all gone but it was a dime on the dollar at best. Bummed me out. Luckily I have an extensive collection of guns. My kids don’t care at all but they will at least be worth some coin.

The cars should be worth some money and like everything else my kids don’t care. Oh well???

My sister used to collect trolls. To this day, those things give me the creeps!
