Why do we have collections?



While preparing for this week, we did a little research on collecting.  Here is what we learned.  People have a basic need and a natural tendency to collect.  The need to collect may stem as far back as, an earlier period in our evolution.  Lots of animals hoarded things, especially food.

We realized that for our crew at MDF we all had a very strong connection between the past and the present, we saw value in the things we collected, each piece told a story that took us back to a simpler time, we had fond memories of people we loved who used these pieces and the impetus was the back story of why it was made, how it was made and who made it.  So we want to know, why do you have your collections?  Please share, we so loved all of your comments yesterday, thank you.  Enjoy!
