This is probably one of my strangest collections (although I guess collecting donkeys and guinea pigs isn’t much less weird). It started in 2003 or so when I noticed that some restrooms sold very strange items in the vending machines. Of course, there are the ordinary items: tampons, Asprin, etc., but I was amused by the not-so-ordinary items. That’s when the collection started. My first item was lip gloss, and it just went from there. Unfortunately, I’m seeing less and less of these vending machines so adding new items to my collection has stalled.
