I am certain that most collectors will understand....
I ran home today to grab some lunch and decided to sit at my desk... recently i moved a large portion of my collection to the shelf above my seat and to a beautiful bakers rack located to my right. I was just kind of free thinking about nothing in particular when i recalled how each and every album came to me. How each collection started and grew into what it is now and where various important (to me) pieces came from.
Oddly enough I posted a game clue in the same fashion of a game we played on the old board and I started to hunt through some of my Picasa albums.. Sure enough - the beginnings of a lot of things are there.
My album move after deciding to expand and move the US album, the large lot I bought with the binders and dust covers that became home to my Canadian collection.. Pictures of purchases I have shared, stamps in various collections, and even stamps I have swapped away a long time ago..
Funny how some non-collectors think things do not change in this hobby or in one’s own collection and growth...
Have thought about what have grown from one album to half of a bookshelf in only 5 years.
As a collector as a kid, I only had a Statesman album with US and Worldwide stamps in it. Stopping collecting to go to college, getting married, having kids, etc., I started to collect again, 5 years ago.
Now looking at my bookshelf with all of those albums, I can remember receiving each of them and feeling the excitement of wanting to fill them up. If I have accumulated that much in 5 years, what will the next 5 years bring?? (Please don't bring up that subject to Mrs kacyds......... Thanks!!!)
My collection has grown from 4 stock books, 2 albums and a small box of mid-80s Canada FDCs to all of the above, plus 2 grocery boxes, a rolling 4-shelf cart, a huge box (still with some space) for postcards, 2 milk crates full of binders of various kinds and a small box of envelopes containing starting topical collectiions!
Collecting Australia, New Zealand, Channel Islands, Canada, U.S., St-Pierre et Miquelon, Faroe Islands Topical - Seahorses, Paleophilately, Machins (limited), kingfishers, trees, horoscope & zodiac, O`Higgins (Chile), Lake Baikal.
