Wonderful world of collectors

Keskiviikko 2.10.2013 klo 19:38 - Tuulikki

The scope of collecting is unlimited: "If something exists, somebody somewhere collects them”..

Items which were once everyday objects may now be collectible since almost all those once produced have been destroyed. It is collected or desirable because of its age, rarity, condition, utility, or other unique features.

The items collectors collect may beantique, or simply collectible. Antiques are collectible items at least 100 years old; collectibles are less than antique, and may even be new.

Some novice collectors start purchasing items that appeal to them, and then slowly work at acquiring knowledge about how to build a collection

The motivations for collecting are varied. Possibly the most common type of collector is the hobbyist, who amasses a collection purely for fun with no real expectation of profit. This is especially true of casual collectors and children who collect items on the basis of chance and personal interest. Old Dreams has 3 young coin collectors – 2 girls and 1 boy. They buy various coins from our “50 cent basket” - mainly european coins from 1930-2000.

Coins of interest to collectors often include those that circulated for only a brief time, coins with mint errors and especially beautiful or historically significant pieces. Coin collecting can be differentiated from numismatics in that the latter is the systematic study ofcurrency.

We have in Old Dreams around 10.000 books. They are mainly in finnish and swedish, but you also can find books in french, english, german, latin, spanish – just to mention few languages. Book collecting can be easy and inexpensive.

Book prices generally depend on the demand for a given book, the number of copies available, and their condition. Also of interest are books previously owned by famous persons, or personages of high stature.  A book in good condition should be a rectangular solid when at rest, whether upright or on its back, with the covers at right angles to the spine.

Stamp collecting is the collecting of postage stamps and related objects. It is still one of the world's most popular hobbies. Postage stamps are often collected for their historical value and geographical aspects and also for the many different subjects depicted on them, ranging from ships, horses, and birds to kings, queens and presidents.
