It is said that three like objects make a collection and that might be true, but in our experience, more dedicated collectors rarely stop at three, or four or even 50 of anything! Collecting is sort of like being a Hunter or Gatherer of the past—except we’re not talking about antelope and berries.

According to the Chicago Tribune, “No matter how cheap and silly something might seem, if you amass enough of it and group it, it can have amazing impact.” Here are 15 cool things to collect so you can start right now. Who knows? You may already have a few choice collectibles, in which case, you’re on your way!

1. Seashells

These symbolize nature, the ocean and a sense of freedom for the collector. Plus, they can become little symbols of all the fab beaches you’ve been so lucky to experience.

2. Vintage Barware
These are not only cool things to collect but also pretty functional. You’ll dazzle every time you host, adding that little hit of retro cool to an otherwise bland affair. Vintage barware is great as display items, too, so you don’t have to keep them tucked away in a box forever.
