You can think about things such as specific years, countries, trademark, pastime, Era, pictures, nature or even something that may be close to you.
Each collection holds a specific story and meaning and once you start this hobby, you will find it extremely interesting the amount of knowledge you will find and the history of each collecting. Not only this but you will find once building one collection and another, it becomes a very rewarding hobby indeed.
