Do you have a love for stamps? Would you like to turn your hobby into a full-time fun income? Not that long ago after going on a new path of discovery. I realised that there was a whole new world out there that I as of yet haven’t discovered.
Anyone that knows me well know that I’m a huge bargain hunter. The modern day treasure hunter. Now coming out of lockdown with a whole new way of looking at life, I’ve decided to start a new hobby of stamp collecting. Millions of people all over the world collect stamps as a hobby, and the number is growing every day.
It is indeed an exciting and rewarding hobby, and it can also be extremely profitable too. I still don’t know why so may people love collecting stamps but I now since starting see the pull and attraction to the hobby. The price of stamps vary with supply and demand due to the number of collectors increasing. The price of stamps is steadily rising, as the supply of stamps diminishes and more people want to acquire them.
Most people start a collection for the pleasure and education just like any other hobby, but this hobby offers a financial reward as well, as you continue to collect your stamps you’ll see your experience steadily increase over the years and you can use your collection as a steady nest egg for you and your family.
The question is – Is it possible to turn stamp collecting into a great side hustle or full-time business?
Yes It is possible to start your own business if you are experienced, and already have a good size collection. For information about becoming a dealer visit websites of:
The Philatelic Traders’ Society was formed in 1929 by a group of established stamp dealers who wished to found a society which would act for, and on behalf of its members, for the greater good of philately. The first Chairman was Albert H. Harris who had established a highly successful publishing company producing, amongst its range, specialist albums and accessories.
ASDA was founded in 1914 as an association “dedicated to promoting integrity, honesty and reliability, and we are the hobby builders of philately.” The ASDA is structured similarly to other philatelic organizations, with a president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, board of directors, general counsel, and various committees and regional chapters. It is located at 217-14 Northern Blvd., Suite 205, Bayside, New York 11361.
