Most people who enjoy shopping as a leisure activity sooner or later reach the point where they have to try to reduce the number of superfluous (possess) that they have accumulated. Some things, like clothes that have become (fashion), are easily disposed of, but to others we develop a kind of sentimental (attach), like souvenirs bought on holidays, or gifts from friends. Most teenagers build up collections; be it CDs by favourite bands, football memorabilia, or whatever, but for some people the urge to collect things continues into adult life.
Such people are the subjects of a new book by Stephen Calloway that looks into the (deny) obsessive world of collectors and their passions. These include all sorts of people, ranging from (million) who hoard Fine Art to ordinary people whose (fascinate) for, say, poodle dogs leads them to buy all manner of poodle art and poodle shaped objects.
But whether you're into art, pottery, football programmes or vintage motorcycles, all collections need space. As Calloway points out, with less intrinsically (value) artefacts, it is often only an (imagine) display that stops a collection from becoming just a pile of old junk. Knowing when to stop buying, therefore, and using good (judge) when it comes to deciding what to keep and what to sell on, is (doubt) the key to successful collecting.
