Stamp Collecting is a Hobby for Everyone!

Few hobbies match the flexibility of stamp collecting. It is suitable for nearly all ages. You can collect stamps all 12 months of the year regardless of the climate where you are located. It does not require any special skills or great wealth. Some individuals begin as young as age 4 and continue for their entire life.

William H. Gross Stamp Gallery at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum produced this video about stamp collectors, including youth, talking about what and why they collect postage stamps.
