i was just wondering what made you guys start to collect stamps in the first place?
me: My dad has always been collecting stamps and so, as a little girl, i was so fascinated by stamps and i loved to look in my dad HUGE box of excess stamps. at some point i decided to collect stamps myself and i've really learned a lot from it: i learned geography, history and also about culture from collecting stamps.
then when i was 16 i took a break from collecting and by summer 2010 i decided to start again. i cut down on what countries and themes to collect and i've bought new albums for some of the collections. I've also bought a Michel catalogue for my German collection (which i am pretty excited about). I hope to get my collection of German stamps to be as big as the collections of Polish and Hungarian stamps (these two collections my mom gave me).
I have a box with stamps i don't collect. I'd like to swap some of these to some that i actually do collect. I have stamps from the Sovjetunion, Australia, lots and lots of countries in Africa, Italy, Serbia and so on. I have stamps from bascially everywhere. But i do not have stamps from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Faeroes, Iceland, Greenland.
What i'm looking for in return is: Germany (mainly after 1945 but i can use everything), Poland (after 1980), Hungary (after 1980), Korea (both north and south) and Egypt. I'm also collecting cartoons, Beatles and dinosaurs.
I'm totally open to trades/sales outside of etsy though so please contact me if you'd like to hook something up!
Thanks for looking.
