Do you collect anything? Baseball cards, stuffed monkeys, or small soaps from hotels?
If you’ve got three or more of something – or 3000 of anything – then you’ll be especially interested in the fun new exhibit at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).
(Enamel Pins – collected by Patti Dougherty)
Private Collections: Personal Obsessions includes selections from eighteen private collections borrowed from residents of the Philadelphia area.
Some collections, such as antique doorknobs, walking canes, and vintage postcards, are nostalgic. Others are all about popular culture – Smurfs, Beanie Babies, and Bobbleheads – or everyday objects such as key chains, brushes, and olive oil cans.
Still other collections represent souvenirs from the collector’s travels. Things like snow globes, matchbooks, and floaty pens.

Private Collections: Personal Obsessions can be seen in the corridor between Terminal A-East and Terminal B through February of 2010.
