You are retiring and you want to start a collection of something so you have an excuse to travel around and not feel guilty because it's without purpose. So what would you like to collect you ask?
Well, you could collect elephants, but no.... the seniors home doesn't have enough storage.
You don't have enough money saved to collect vintage cars you exclaim? Well! Neither do most of us, so they're out.
You don't sew, knit or crochet, so you can't collect fabric, yarn or patterns.
So here's a thought: Salt and Pepper Shakers! No Wait! They're small. They're cheap mostly. And you can find them darn near anywhere! A perfect collection!
Here are some that I found and they're all Christmas themed! (What coincidence!)
