According to this article stamp collecting is enjoying something of a surge in popularity. The Royal Philatelic Society has reported a rise in membership and dealers have also reported a sharp increase in sales. Ebay have also reported a 30% rise in stamp sales. It appears the rise in popularity could be down to the recession with people choosing the relatively inexpensive pastime of stamp collecting rather than more expensive pursuits. Whatever the reason it appears that more people are choosing the hobby and it is starting to appeal the younger market and even to some celebrities. With all this interest could stamp collecting finally become cool?
