    Collections to Start with Your Family

    Posted on July 23rd, 2017 by Joe G

    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 have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
