Stamp collecting is pretty easy to start and can be as simple as ask friends and family to save the stamps off their mail. You can also visit your local post office and ask them if they carry the basic regular issue stamps of the commemorative stamps. You can check out stamp shows in your area that will have stamp dealers in stamps and join a stamp collecting club. The internet is another great way to find unusual stamps and from all over the world. When it comes time to sell your collection, make sure to take the time to learn how to sell your collection at the best prices.
