Weird Collections of the Rich and Famous

What do the rich and famous do with all their dough? Some of them, it turns out, collect weird things - here is a neat post about a few weird collections of the rich over at mental_floss:

Imelda Marcos

When Ferdinand Marcos and Imelda hastily fled the Philippines and Malacañan Palace when Ferdinand’s regime was overthrown, they left behind nearly all of their possessions, which were quite numerous. Imelda was first thought to own more than 6,000 individual shoes, a number which was later downgraded to a mere 1,060 pairs. She also abandoned 65 parasols, 15 mink coats, 888 purses, 508 floor-length dresses and 71 pairs of sunglasses.
