So you want to collect stamps??
After 30 years of living with a stamp collector, I have developed a HUGE respect for the joy I witness the hobby give those who engage in it. While I still am not among them, my new job allows me to support them. At Regency Superior Auctions in St. Louis, MO, I am the new product manager - selling catalogs, tongs, mounts, albums, stockbooks, hinges, magnifiers, etc., to facilitate those who collect. The joy is undeniable - it's source various and the "rules" of how to pursue the hobby are non-existent. That said, there are clear guidelines which will help you avoid disappointments and wonderful guidance from many who have walked the path before. I invite anyone taking up the hobby for the first time, or rejoining it after a hiatus, to share their questions/comments as we go along. It's fun!! Let's do it!!
