The future of stamp collecting

The Northwest Explorer of Tucson, Arizona, featured stamp dealer Dale Williams (shown at left), owner of American Stamp and Coin Company and several other collectors, in an article about the future of stamp collecting.

He's quoted as "begrudgingly" admitting that the Internet might indeed be the future of stamp collecting.

"Why pay for all this overhead" he asked, referring to his store's utility and rental expenses, "when you can sit at home in your bathrobe - or naked - and sell from your computer?"

Williams doesn't want to close shop and work just on the Internet. People enjoy coming into the store, he said, and they trust him as a dealer.

"This store is a kind of a dinosaur."
