A collection meeting

The Wine Museum will host a national meeting that will bring together fans of the most unusual collectibles, in Maipú.

Stories of people

A group of Mendoza collectors is organizing a national meeting  for March 21 and 22 next . If coronavirus allows,  fans from all over the province and from all over the country will arrive with the least thought out collectibles. Coins, banknotes, autitos, railway models, stamps, harvest tokens , are the most treasure elements. The event will be at the  Wine Museum , in Ozamis Street in Maipú.

“It's for every public. Here come people from all over the country and from all over the province. We're very passionate about this. We have and share a lot of information,” says Marcos, one of the organizers.

For his part,  Juan, holder of multiple collectibles, confesses: “I collect banknotes and coins from Argentina. I follow catalogs and advice from the most experienced people in the group.  From catalogs, one is interested in geographical, historical and economic topics. There's everything to find. It's fascinating.” The passion of the collection also has its monetary correlate. On this, Juan admits that “ from the economic, too, the catalog makes what I am collecting value”.  

 A search 

Meanwhile,  Agustina, defines the hobby of the collection as a search. “It is, most of all, a search. I, when I was a girl, didn't know my grandfather collected. But when I was big, I knew he had coins,   medals . I inherited all that, too. I learned a lot from him, because I once told him that I liked coins, because I study history, and there I started.” And she admits that many people don't feel any attraction to this that she is so passionate about: “It's a personal search. It is a taste that one finds through what you read and imagine.  It is not inheritable in itself, because it may not interest a son or a nephew , so I say it's a search.”
