Not just stamps, but books and furniture and glassware. We all collect something. And some people display their collections beautifully. Some collections are useful and others are simply nostalgic or aesthetic...

The beauty of displaying a collection well is the serial look of it, the care shown for the objects, the appreciation of their beauty as individual pieces and as a composition. We looked through Flickr for some collections on display and found the stamps, Converse All-Stars, and records pictured here. All three make colorful, beautiful displays.
