The internet has changed all our lives and certainly the way we collect. Before the late 1990's I used to send off stamped addressed envelopes for peoples' lists of collectables for sale or trade. They would advertise in the small ads at the back of Model Mart and in the local Yorkshire newspaper.
Those snail-mail days are long gone but I do find myself missing them. There was something very tangible about receiving paper letters and lists through the post and following things up on the phone. This is how I got my entire project SWORD collection during the 1990's.
What do you think readers? Was it the Dark Ages back then or actually a great time for collecting?
