Painting, photography, bass, headphones. None are that expensive. Cooking is the most expensive by far. More than fragrances, but as always I try to be frugal.
I used to collect baseball cards but nothing now
I don't consider any of my hobbies expensive. When it comes to fragrances I'm only a casual user, sticking to the cheaper end of the spectrum, the ones made for the unwashed masses and stingy bastards.
He boiled for our sins.
Well, I guess I buy fragrances less frequently than I buy ingredients It's probably not the same for everyone
Tools do not require constant purchasing, just cheap upkeep. That said I still would like a good ice cream machine, an accurate water bath, a wood fired oven (and a lawn to go with it), and while I have a lawn a simple cold smoking setup would be great :P
Musician/recording artist here.
Also an animal activist and a proud dog owner .
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
Other expensive hobbies:
- musical instruments and music tech,
- building PCs and buying associated gadgets,
- bespoke/tailored clothing,
- flying on my private pilot licence (a very easy way to get rid of a lot of money)
...and most expensive of all; being a dad!
I'd love all those too.
We have a very basic ice cream machine at home. It makes ice cream in about 45 minutes. All you do is add the mixture and it'll cream and freeze it for you. Reasonable too. I think around $200 to $300.
Watches (thats a terribly expensive one, put on hold for now), knives, guitars and studio recording equipment (also a horrible, horrible money pit), computers/gaming gear, had a sunglass phase, and there is gonna be a handgun phase pretty soon (got my permit last year, but haven't had the time to pursue it yet).
Edit/ps: none of this cost near as much as my wife and kids! Is that a hobby?
Whiskey and cigars prior to having two beautiful daughters.
OH YEAH!! NIKON USERS STAND UP!!
Not only do you smell good and have excellent taste in frags, but you also have excellent taste in photography equipment. I have the Nikon D90 with the SB-600, Nikkor 50 1.8, 35 1.8, 18-200 3.something, and the kit lens. I want the D7000. The D7000 hasn't been available in my area for months. I'm on a couple of waiting lists.
I love photography. I've always loved taking pics. Now, I can take beautiful pics since I have a DSLR. I love taking pics at concerts. I mostly take pics for friends and family. I just did a bday party last weekend. I love it when the folks I take pics for get so excited about how their pics turn out. I'm no pro by a long shot, but I do alright.
Someone mentioned how could cooking be expensive. Honey if you are cooking with the good stuff, it can get down right pricey. My oooooother hobby is baking. I use Nielsen-Massey extracts, Plugra butter, Pernigotti/Valrhona cocoa, etc. I usually get busy around the holidays. I sold a few cakes this holiday season. These ingredients add up. Luckily this hobby pays. And yes my cakes tastes as good as I smell Woo! :-)

Glassworking: it started out as an expensive hobby, now it pays the bills.
College is looking like it'll end up being my most expensive hobby, though.
Watches and the 911 does require a certain amount of work hours being put in :-).
