Default Obsessed collector

In my family everyone has their own hobbies. My dad has his stereo and now his boat. I have my Jeeps, tools and other crap. My mother on the other hand collects mice figurines, called Charming Tales. She has been doing this for atleast 20+ years. Today she decided to go and sort through some of her collection, she has a lot more than whats shown. On average the smaller boxes cost about $20-50, and the bigger boxes can be $50-300. She has a few pieces that are valued at a couple grand so I guess there is some value to this crap.

Any one else here know of any one who is an extreme collector of stuff

My wife collects dem deco statues. They looked to be carved and painted wood, but they are not. They have sayings that go with them i.e. "New Life" and it is a mother holding a baby. I buy them for her all the time. But she has 3 right now missing heads, so I have to glue them back on.

My daughters to the Webkins thing.

I guess I do collect Hard Rock glasses but I have such a small collection that it didn't cross my mind

Where does she keep all of them?

Those may be valued at thousands, but they are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them.
Which I bet is nowhere near what the "book" value is.

No way in hell I would let all that crap in my house.
