I do like having a good variety of things available for still life
arrangements. I also use a variety of things to spread out on their
tables just to practice observational drawing with. The kids enjoy the
odd things I have collected- but I am naturally a pack rat. I think you
need to go with what you are comfortable with- have some stuff when you
start, and if you discover you want more, you certainly can find it
without too much trouble. I'd hang on to really unusual things - odd
one of a kind things that are good to draw when you find them though-
but not everything.
