I recently read a relative of my husband's post on fb, of her thoughts on collectors being hoarders, was basically, the gist! Naturally, I was a bit miffed. But, an after thought came... and I guess for some, if not, most who are non-collectors, may not know the reasons behind those who do collect.
Some choose to be ignorant and use simple explanations as to why people would collect one thing or another. It's actually quite dumbfounded, that people think they are not collectors?
Ergo, what about those who collect recipes from their Grandma and family members, favorite book reads, quotes or Legos for their children, is that not a type of collection? We don't hoard either, most sell their collections in time. If you'd like to read more, here is a link that can help you gain a bit of knowledge on the issue.
So, just a bit of a "Booyah!" so to speak, to this particular relative, and those who think they don't collect something or another or understand why others do? Here's my gist below!
Thank you very much for listening to my rant on this. ~ ggsdolls
