Why I Joined

Posted By Patrick Stanton     March 22, 2021     454 views     1 like     1 comment
I recently discovered a fantastic new social network for collectors.  Being an avid collector myself, I find the only problems associated with the hobby is the inability to interface with other collectors unless I go to a collectors show.  This article covers the reasons why I decided to...  more

Are You Like Me When it Comes to Collecting?


Are you an avid collector like me?  Have you been passionate about your collections hobby for several months or years?  If so, like me, you probably dislike having family members that are too thrilled about your hobby, and you have very few (or no) friends that share the same interest.  Such is the lonely road we collectors travel on.  Or should I say, "once traveled on," for now through a newly launched startup social network for collectors, offers you multiple means and ways to show off your collection(s) to the world, meet other collectors, add to your collection, or sell collectibles you might wish to part with for various reasons.


I recently signed up and became a Platinum member to and plan to use the network often to stay connected with my hobby, build my own brand as an expert collector, meet new collector friends that share the same hobby, and do what you do on social networks -- namely, interact, discuss, display, ask questions and so much more.  How much more?  More than on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, or just about any other social network I can think of at this time.  Allow me to explain why:


My Reasons for Joining the Collector's Network


Before I provide you my list, allow me just a minute to get us both on the same page by asking you a few questions:

1.  Is your household or extended family totally void of anyone else who shares your collection hobby, collection the same category of collectibles?
2.  Do people within your family or at work get tired of you talking about your collection?
3.  Do you have what I call a "collector's addiction" that feeds you, even when others show no interest?
4.  Is one of the goals of your collecting hobby to increase your net work, make a business out of it, or leave it as an inheritance for you spouse, children or other family members?
5.  Do you find it difficult to meet other collectors in your special collector's niche?


If you answered "yes" to each of these five questions then you and I share a lot in common.  My personal world of collection is pretty lonely most of the year, until I can go to a collector's show, flea market or antique shop, when I can interface with vendors selling my various collectible items, and sometimes have the opportunity to meet someone who shares the same interest for a minute or two.  But with COVID-19 keeping people indoors, all the collector shows I've attended in the past have been closed for over a year.  And this is how I found  I was looking for a means and ways to grow my hobby online and begin interfacing with people who share the same collectibles interest
