Why people collect stuff?
for example, i collect roosters, but only for my kitchen.
It feels worth it when you see how big your collection is! :) I collect calligraphy pens. (hope I spelled that right).
They probably do it for fun. Or they would show off. It also helps themset a goal to make a collection of things.
It's the same exact thing weather it's for one room or another. Your trying to justify the fact that you collect one thing for one area as not being someone who collects when you are.
Because they can
I love collecting old equipment that doesnt work and fixing it.
