Sure, but the point is really just to add more (and more useful) things 
to the object collection.

We could do a variety of shoes, for instance - or anything that goes in 
a bathroom.  We could do types of trees, or plants from an herb garden.

As long as
a) the objects are varied enough that you'll (probably) find something 
useful for your scene, and
b) the objects are detailed enough that it's not easier to just make 
your own,

then we should be good.
