A place to discuss possessions that aren't used and stored away, or you no longer have.

I remember a toy train I had when I was little. Used to have lots of fun with it, but it's in storage now.

You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!

Lots and lots of records that I couldn't move with me when I left the UK for the US. Waaaaaaaaaaaa.

I also miss Dumbo, my pink stuffed elephant I was given by my parents on my second birthday. I can't for the life of me remember what I did with it but I did still have it after 20yrs.

[up][up] My sister had a pink stuffed elephant. I think she still may... loved the stuffing out of it. If it's still around, it's more a bag than anything.

Do you highlight everything looking for secret messages?

Coca-Cola used to be sold in reusable glass bottles. You bought a carton of 6 bottles, drank them, and took them back to the store. You got a refund on the empties.

But that's not the point. On the bottom of each bottle, they stamped the name of the city where it was manufactured. I had a collection of bottles from different cities. As far as I know, they're still sitting in the attic of my late father's house.

Under World. It rocks!

My God, that completely explains why we have to crates of those in the garage, the previous owner was very old and had lived here for years. Wondered why I hadn't seen them in any stores since moving over to the states!

Barrs still do refundable bottles. I have a Red Kola bottle that I use for plant food and keep thinking 'should I go and get my 15p back?'.

I have my poor NES with the RF adapter that doesn't work anymore. Then there's all my toys, which I guess I'll give to my kids some day, whenever I have kids. And a bunch of old assignments and school projects going all the way back to elementary school. Also, multiple boxes full of old VHS movies, which I can't really sell because they'd be worth like a dime each these days.

There are VHS collectors around and about, and if you have any entertainingly cheesy non-movies, send it overt the guys who put on the Found Footage Festival!
