I know some people who have had collections started for them. One person would give them something, then someone else would give them another type of the same thing. Pretty soon everyone seems to be adding to the collection. I had a friend that collected cow things because people started giving her cows and others figured she was collecting them.

I used to collect Frisbees, or "flying discs" if you use the generic term. I didn't have enough room for them...so I had to toss 'em.

I know what you mean. I have a button collection. My grandmother and aunt collected buttons, so they gave me their duplicates. Once the word was out the buttons kept coming. Same thing with salt cellars. And Shaker boxes. Come to think of it, once you have three of anything, you're done for.
