Thank you to all the folks who submitted photos of their wonderful collections in response to the call for submissions in our recent post: “The Collector: Earn Your Own Badge.” I absolutely loved seeing the wide variety of collectibles, and the wondrous ways in which they’re all so lovingly curated and displayed. Here are a few highlights – enjoy!

Lea Redmond is always looking for the poem hiding inside things: a salt shaker, a clothes tag, a hand gesture, a cloud. She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.

    Awesome, just awesome. I love all of these collections (probably most envious of the typewriters, as I only have 2.)
