I’ve read that designers always say : Don’t make somebody a collector if they aren’t.
But, I am most definitely a collector. My mom and grandmother started collecting demitasse for me when I was young.
Collections in your house are fun for you to look at and remember a special purchase or a person who gave you the item. I think they are also a fun connection point for guests who come into your home. It adds a bit of decorative personality to your home and tells them something about you.
I also can’t forget about books! I am most definitely a collector of books to decorate with and to read!
