Collecting is a fun hobby. Whether your collection is baseball cards or vintage salt and pepper shakers, the field of collectibles is not new. However, the items people collect change over time. A true collection is not something acquired because of the popularity of an item, but rather the collector's unique affinity for it. If you find something you love, want to decorate with it, and enjoy the hunt for it, then starting a collection may be something you enjoy.
Do you have a friend who loves to entertain, but would scoff at most home-decorating related gifts? Is he "too tough" to wash the dishes, but collects shot glasses with enthusiasm?
There are ways to personalize virtually any item a person has. Decals and bumper stickers as well as seat covers allow you to accessorize your vehicle. Jewelry allows you to accessorize and personalize your wardrobe.
Collecting wine bottle stoppers is a fun hobby, but displaying them in a fashionable way can be difficult.
The scene is set, a dimly lit romantic restaurant, a high end meal and champagne on ice. There's nothing finer than keeping a bottle of wine cool without having to make repeated trips to the fridge.

There is just absolutely nothing like the joy of opening a couple bottles of fabulously rich wine, allowing them to breathe and enjoying drinks with great friends. Often these moments with beloved friends mark a special occasion or event and the saved corks become precious mementos.
