By Martin Stoleman

It might sound weird coming from a guy, but I have always been something of a collector. I remember having quite a few shoe boxes filled with odds and ends when I was a kid. I remember never throwing anything away in case I would want it later. I went through the stage where I saved all of my toys and all of my tiny army soldiers. I remember my mom telling me that one day I would regret saving everything I had ever owned and that I couldn't be a collector forever or I'd never find a house big enough for all my stuff. She might have been even more upset had she known that I would start to collect cookie jars as an adult. I have no real idea when or why exactly I began to collect cookie jars. All I remember is that one day I became extremely intrigued by them and that I started purchasing them whenever I could.

Being a collector at heart, many of my Saturdays were and still are spent garage saleing. I love going from house to house and collecting treasures that other people considered trash. Once I realized how much I loved cookie jars I began to see that they were at many of the garage sales I visited. I would begin a day of garage sales telling myself that I could only purchase one cookie jar that day, but I would finish the day with three or five or sometimes ten cookie jars in my backseat.

When I tell people about my growing collection of cookie jars, the obvious question they ask me is what I do with them. They wonder if I eat enough cookies to keep the jars filled, and if I do, why am I not overweight. People wonder if I love to bake cookies and then fill my cookie jars with them to give as gifts (I wish I were that altruistic). Most people do not know how to react when I say that I simply love cookie jars because I like how they look and that they are displayed on shelves in a room of my house.

My collection of cookie jars has steadily been increasing for the past fifteen years. I guess I shouldn't have ever started because now I definitely cannot stop. People in my life know to get me unique cookie jars for gifts, and you would be amazed by how unique and creative some of my jars are from the years. I truly love cookie jars. Call me crazy, but I do. Now if I could just develop a love of baking then I could actually put the cookie jars to real use.
