As more & more people are practicing social distancing and the over 70’s are encouraged to stay at home. We highlight some activities you can do to increase your enthusiasm for the hobby.
The most obvious is to simply enjoy your collection. Take time to write up, research and study it. Maybe you haven’t had some pieces out in a few months, get them out review and enjoy.
Check out new traders. Why not spend some time reviewing some online traders. There is a full list of respected PTS traders over on their website. Have a google and do some online shopping!
Why not start to prepare your collection for an exhibition. That extra time you have can lend itself perfectly to choosing an exhibition and getting that collection into tip top shape! Read our blog post all about how to exhibit.
Watch all of Graham at Exploring Stamps You Tube videos, with over 80 films to choose from you are spoilt for choice.
Try Stamp Art. Do you have spare stamps lying around the house? Then take inspiration from Art Stamped and get creative. If you can’t get out, then make those birthday cards for loved ones.
