Stamps are for everyone - and it’s easy to make your own collection completely your
own. There aren’t any rules - you can collect what you like, how you like. If you
want to collect spaceships on stamps, or boybands on stamps, great! No problem. If
you want to learn a bit about people from the other side of the world, what better
way than by collecting their stamps?
The older collectors amongst us will remember when collecting stamps was something
which nearly everyone did, at some time or another. Many, if not most, schools had
a stamp cllub, and you could never find the Gibbons catalogue in the local library
because it was always out!
But something which seems so obvious to the grown-ups is an undiscovered world for
most young people, whose spare time is filled with different pastimes. Yet stamps
continue to offer the same challenges, excitements and possibilities. All it needs
is something to spark the interest.
