Deb Hoffmann wasn't always a Winnie the Pooh collector. It started with a ketchup bottle telephone, which turned into a nationwide hunt for a Winnie the Pooh phone. Since then, her collection has grown to over 21,000 unique items, worth around $1 million. Deb says she thinks she has a collector gene, and on this episode of The Vault, she shows inside of the world's largest Winnie the Pooh collection.
