Beginning A Collecting Hobby

Beginning A Collecting Hobby

A hobby of collecting items can turn into a lot of fun and even profit for the person interested in beginning with something they love. Always consider the reason for the collection hobby before you start. If it is a passion of love then enjoy it for what it can offer you. Do not do it for money, but be careful how much you invest. Do not stress your own finances by buying too much at one time. A collection will build over time and you will find much more than you need to fill a shelf, a room, and even your entire house.

Great items to begin collecting for everyone are cups. They are pretty, unusual, unique, funny, strange, different, and come in every color or gender style you can think of. Show off your cups with shelves build along the edge of the ceiling in one room and as it fills, you can create the next room full of collectibles. Dishes and glasses fall into this category, but are larger to store. If you are interested in glasses, try beer steins or state travel glasses.

Other collectibles to begin with are dolls prior to 80’s, comic books, wooden toys, movie posters, very old photos from antique stores, cameras, cigar labels, cigar boxes, cookie tins, and so much more. It all depends on what your interest are and the age you begin to collect. Children carry collections into adulthood many times with items like pocket knives, certain toys, books, candy wrappers, and more. It is fun to share with friends and everything can be displayed.

    This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
