Default Don't Show, Just Tell

I thought it would be interesting to know how forum members became CI collectors or avid users. I came up with a short list of questions. Feel free to add to this thread with your answers (but no photos). Please keep replies in this thread confined to responses to the original post questionnaire.:

1. What is the first piece of cast iron cookware you actually owned?
2. Do you consider yourself more a collector, a user, or both?
3. What is the first piece you acquired with an eye toward collecting?
4. What is the first truly collectible piece you acquired?
5. If you were forced to give up your collection except for one piece, what would that piece be?
6. Knowing it's hard to name a single favorite, name up to three CI items, rare or not, on your "holy grail" or "bucket list".

1. A 1970s Lodge 10SK skillet I grabbed from my parents' garage sale to equip my own kitchen.

2. I don't use every piece I own, but I do use CI to cook in nearly every day, so both.

3. A Wagner Ware (no Sidney -O-) Made In USA #3 skillet at a flea market.

4. A Griswold #7 SBL grooved handle skillet at a flea market.

5. I'll go with sentimental over rare or useful, and say my grandmother's Griswold #8 LBL smooth bottom skillet.

6. Hard to narrow to three, but among them would be a Griswold #14 turk's head pan, any Wagner pie logo skillet I don't already have, or a Favorite Piqua waffle iron with the sunrise logo and the original blue enameled base.
