When I was In high school my friend Eileen gave me a stamp. At first I don't appreciate it but as she brought her album with different shapes, different presidents to other country , etc. I admire and I want to collect also. I just started to collect stamps to my classmates, then to my friends and to my relatives. Now, I do have 2 albums and if im alone I do opened it and it makes me happy. How about you? Do you collect stamps? How it started? Do you love it? do you enjoy watching it?

Collecting stamps is my childhood hobby. I do not do it anymore. However, your discussion bring back my childhood memory. It's very fun to collect stamps at that time. I can learn about the people and culture from around the world. Besides, I can know about the special events happened in different places too!

Hi, I have been collecting stamps now for almost 25 years, started it as a 13 year old, but now I have over 100,000 stamps in my collection plus lots of FDCs, postcards, entires, etc. I have lots of friends in many countries with whom I exchange. Yes, the craze about stamps is still the same, even today, I still stay awake all night and look after my stamps and enjoy it. I m also married with 5 kids, and 2 jobs but still find at least 1 hour daily and 1 full sunday to enjoy my hobby. Im still looking forward to find more exchange partners from ww countries.

I use to collect stamps when I was still in high school. I had an album before. I have ceased on doint it anymore due to time constraints. I need to prioritize my work. But if given the opportunity it is a nice hobby.
