Collections to Start with Your Family

Posted on July 23rd, 2017 by JoeG

Chicago Gold Gallery prides itself on being one of the foremost buyers of authentic Antique & Vintage jewelry and high powered coin collections, we also can encourage collecting for family fun.

Creating a collection is a fun way for you and your whole family to bond! A collection creates a shared sense of purpose between people, and you can even make some money from them! This is why starting a collection for your family can be a very rewarding hobby. Whether your kids are all grown up or not even born yet, here are rewarding and easy items you could start collecting today:

Not all collections must be as sophisticated as a high power collection like Rare Vintage Guitars, Cars, Slot Machines & Antique Jewelry. Family interest can be sparked by collecting things like:

Snow Globes

Snow globes make for nostalgic dreamlike collections, that your kid can enjoy collecting. This can be achieved by buying snow globes at important places you visit. Whether you are traveling as a family or individually, you can purchase snow globes to add to your family’d collection.  When you have a decently sized collection you will be able to go through them and recall the fun memories you treasured together and memorable stories from the journeys you spent apart.

Beginners Coin Collection

You can start a coin collection with your family in a variety of ways. Begin to save your change regularly when you pay with cash, and look for significant coins. An easy way to start is by collecting quarters from all 50 states. If you want to get into a more advanced coin collection, you can find great resources online for coin references. If you are ever looking to create a profit from coins you collect, you can visit Chicago Gold Gallery for top dollar on your coins.

Vintage Costume Jewelry Collection

You can have a fun collection of vintage costume jewelry without having to pay large sums of money for the look and reminiscence of eras past by collecting vintage and antique costume jewelry.

They are practical and collectable! Jewelry buyers in Chicago can help you understand what types of jewelry have more value than others when you are starting your collection. When your family has already gathered many jewelry pieces and are ready to start on their next collection, jewelry buyers in Chicago can give you top dollar for the pieces you are ready to give up.

No matter what collection you choose to start, be sure to stick to it and make it a fun activity for you and the whole family. If you feel you have a collection or valuables you are ready to let go, contact Chicago Gold Gallery for top prices on your collectables!

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
