    What do you collect?

    Do you collect anything?

    I just got an email about a farmer in Northamptonshire who has built up a collection of almost 500 model tractors (his wife must be delighted). It's taken him 40 years and he reckons one of them is worth about £200.

    I haven't collected anything since I was a kid, and even then it was only stickers, but are you mad on collecting anything - either farm-related or otherwise?

    I collect bargains.

    Later, I find out that they are not.

    Mind you, to be fair to myself. On Saturday last, I bought a brand new, perfectly fitting Brook Tavener Sports Jacket from an antique shop in Malvern for £29. Yes. It was brand new. Pockets sewn up, spare buttons in a little plastic bag in the inner pocket. All labels still attached.

    A few minutes later I saw exactly the same jacket in Brays Department Store opposite the antique shop for £218.

    Now that's a bargain!

    You can't beat a good collection of die-cast farm machinery ..
