49th AUCTION at 22th-26th of february 2021




Not from "The Guardian." The renowned British daily newspaper wrote in April 2019 "Post modern: why millennials have fallen in love with stamp collecting"


About the term: Millennials, or Generation Y, is the term commonly used to describe the generation born in the period from the early 1980s to the late 1990s. As usual for the Guardian, thorough research was done: not only the 37-year-old (only the second) female chairman of the Philatelic Traders Society, the manager of an auction house and a 29-year-old senior auctioneer were interviewed, but also collectors, i.e. "fans", as the newspaper writes in the original text.


The comments of the respondents ranged from "creative pursuit as an escape from the screen-based lives", "Philately is tangible: it’s relaxing and unplugged", "Stamp collecting is presumed to be a solitary endeavour reserved for the older members of society, but this could not be further from the truth" and "stamp collecting is a lifestyle". I will refrain from further quotations here, but I can confirm that many customers and friends of the Gärtner Auctions belong to the Generation Y.


Countless conversations show, whether during the viewing hours, at the auctions or at international exhibitions, that the "young ones" – especially overseas – are catching up. Therefore, we can also confirm from our own experience that the Guardian has not served us fake news. Guaranteed it is also not fake news, what I can report about our exciting February auctions:
