Matchbooks spark Mass. man's love of collecting - Boston.com

Matchbooks spark Mass. man's love of collecting - Boston.com:

"Walk into his modest Cape-style home and you'll find them everywhere. They hang in neatly framed displays on the walls of almost every room, and they meticulously sit in dust-free arrangements on pieces of furniture.

There are also about 5,000 of them jammed into large paper leaf collection bags in the basement.

And matchbooks aren't the only things Vigneault collects. The former Kom Tek Inc. employee has doll, baseball card, stamp, coin, magazine, die-cast car, movie memorabilia and other collections."

Passion for #Collecting in Mumbai #Hobbies can give you good returns #Stamps

Hobbies can give you good returns - Money - DNA:
"The proclivity to collect something can strike one in childhood or old age. Jayakar started collecting cigarette packets when he was in school. The collection of items like art, paintings, sculptures, stamps, coins and notes may give one a good return in the long run. However, items such as cigarette packets, matchboxes and book-patches are often invaluable.

For beginners
When one begins collecting, it is better to start with a general collection. For example, if one is collecting stamps, one should collect as many stamps as possible. After awhile, the collection should be narrowed down to say, stamps which have a flower."

Folk song collector + Men at Work song copied from folk song

Response: This great folk song collector was not a controlling manipulator | Comment is free | The Guardian:

Cecil Sharp was a diligent, highly motivated folk music, dance and song collector who, by the time of his death in 1924, had collected some 5,000 tunes and published more than 70 volumes. He is the only British collector who can be compared with such European giants as Bartók and Kodály."
