Most of us in our childhood would have collected stamps, coins, photos of film stars, cricketers, match box labels, toys, comic books, shells and so on....Many of us have continued Collecting, thus choosing it as a hobby.
The hobby of collecting consists of acquiring specific items based on a particular interest of the collector. These collections of things are often highly organized, carefully cataloged, and attractively displayed. Since collecting depends on the interests of the individual collector, it may deal with almost any subject. The depth and breadth of the collection may also vary.
Some collectors choose to focus on a specific subtopic within their area of general interest, for example, Mahatma Gandhi postage stamps, Coins of Mughals, Spiderman merchandise , Making Cactus garden, etc. while others prefer to keep a more general collection like stamps from all countries of the world.
Some collections are capable of being completed, at least to the extent of owning one sample of each possible item in the collection (e.g. a copy of every Harry Potter book). Collectors who specifically try to assemble complete collections in this way are sometimes called "completists." Upon completing a particular collection, they may stop collecting, expand the collection to include related items, or begin an entirely new collection.
The most popular fields in collecting have specialized commercial dealers that trade in the items being collected, as well as related accessories. Many of these dealers started as collectors themselves, then turned their hobby into a profession. The most popular collecting themes are listed below:-
