You are on the site of a former collector of beer coasters. My fascination began in 2002, I was thoroughly engrossed in this work from late 2007 to early 2014.
During this time I was actively doing exchanges with people from all over the world so passionately and with admirable fervour. I have collected about 15,000 coasters.
They say, I was a good collector. I agree with this ☺. I was not that really cool friend, but hopefully was approaching this title ☺.
Sometimes I fell into various ratings, I was referred on famous sites and in various breweriana directories. All of that of course was very nice and pleased my pride.
Sometimes I fell into the newspapers (well ... just once , frankly ☺ ).
And once I even bothered a flattering title
My collection was also decent, respectively ☺
And parting with it did not come easy. Sad, ruefully and with a heavy heart at first.
But now this burden fell. I am sure that the suddenly conceived desire for liberation from the shackles that inhibited was right. And now I'm free to:
"Only children's books to read,
My collection no longer exists. More precisely, it exists somewhere, somehow. In parts, in references, in memories, in shadow of the past ☺ And virtually, on this site.
Here and today collectors can view the information they need. It is becoming more and more irrelevant, unfortunately. Everything's become history . And I was part of it.
Sometimes, you know, I feel sad ☺ But do not forget about the advantages.
"My work is living", the site is used by collectors. Many people wonder, what was the excellent collection (oh, dreams, dreams ☺ )
But this is not important. The main thing is that now I have a lot of good friends. They appeared during my hobby, so much so that they remained. It pleases immensely!
And still I have my travels which I love to write. And some people like to read about it that also can but rejoice.
Now there is plenty of room for new books (maybe I shall buy the "Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary" finally) and the time to write my articles.
And if anybody reads these pieces of text and criticize not too much ☺, I will be the most happy person in the world ☺
