Tonight at the Knitting Factory, City Reliquary presents “Collectors’ Night,” where you can check out the collections of over two dozen collectors, including newsstand paperweights, art museum dust, coin purses and souvenirs bearing the collectors’ name. And if you’re a collector yourself, you can display your finds in a jar that will be showcased on the bar.

There will also be films (including Never Enough, about how three Americans deal with their possessions, including “a woman who has 700 sweaters, a marine with 7,800 beanie baby dolls and a Home Shopping Network addict whose purchases have made his apartment unlivable”), discussions and, of course, cocktails.

The City Reliquary Museum’s “Collectors’ Night” begins at 7 p.m. tonight. Tickets can be purchased here.
