Starting a Family Collection

It might be challenging picking out what to collect and you can go about this in a couple different ways. One, you could just choose something that you think everyone will enjoy and use a little marketing skill to get people on board. Otherwise, you can put it to a vote. Have everyone come up with one or two ideas and then do a secret ballot. Or, you could provide the choices and have everyone vote for one of those. It's up to you!

Once you've chosen an item to collect just start looking. Antique stores, flea markets, odd little shops, garage sales – everywhere! Pretty soon you'll find that your family really comes together to find your special items; it's like an inside joke or a private tradition. Even when your teenager is out with their friends, they may duck into a shop quickly just to check and see if there are any miniature tea cups! Good luck, and have fun collecting!
