To collect because of an article somewhere that said “someday these will be very valuable,” isn’t a good reason. There has to be a love or connection to each item in order to legitimize it. Remember, even if you collect thimbles, too many end of being a jumble of clutter. And keeping a collection of something because your aunt left it to you might need to be re-thought. Do you really need to keeps stuff you’re not crazy about in order to remind yourself that you loved your aunt? Unless you really like the collection, you might want to think just putting her picture in a beautiful frame to remind you.
