Romance and Stamp Collecting

Tasmania's Coastal Times reports, "There is a big connection between stamp collecting and romance according to Devonport Stamp Club president Gary Carbines."

Reporter Eisten Joyeux quotes Gary as saying collecting was about the thrill of the chase and filling a gap. However, he does warn people that their childhood collection of stamps may have more sentimental value than monetary value.

Gary told Eisten, ".. the key to getting people involved with stamp collecting was to get people interested in something they liked, anything from birds - the most popular collection - to famous faces, landmarks, or a particular country . . . the possibilities are endless. "

Gary recommends clubs create their own website which makes the hobby more appealing to younger members and more accessible to others who cannot attend meetings.
