Are You An Expert Collector?

Deep down, we're all collectors—a snow globe here, a floating pen there—but some of us have really become pros (some might say fanatics) when it comes to buying a beloved object in a specific part of the world, be it Turkish rugs in Istanbul or decorative eggs in St. Petersburg, Russia. Are you obsessed with amassing a certain souvenir when you travel? We want to hear about your tricks of the trade. Tell us what you love to collect, where you always buy it, how big your collection is, and what your top three tips are for us novice collectors.

The submission deadline is December 31, 2007; only one submission per person. We regret that we won't be able to include every submission we receive, and we reserve the right to edit for length and clarity. Once you send in your story or photograph, it becomes our property—intellectual and otherwise.
