100,001 Items Listed on Marketplace

We are glad to announce that our new Colnect Marketplace now has over 100,001 listings. Sellers from around the world are offering collectibles for sale easily on Colnect.


We are proud that even though we introduced our marketplace not too long ago, the number of people using it is increasing rapidly. We are constantly making improvements based on the feedback we receive and hope to continue to be the place for collectors to easily exchange and trade collectibles.


Our marketplace is based on our centralized catalog and as such listing an item for sale is as quick as locating the item in the catalog and providing condition and price. Buyers can then see all sales for a specific item. Collectors are provided with comfy tools which utilize information from our catalogs and collection management tools.


Currently, the most items are listed in stamps category, already reaching more than 78,000 listings. In addition to the items, the number of the categories and countries featured in the Marketplace is increasing as well. 


If you are not familiar with our Marketplace yet and want to start using it, feel free to visit it and read Help pages for more detailed information on how to get started. Also, there is a vizard guide to all catalog and marketplace features there.

6,666 Tea Labels Passed

The first milestone of tea labels is here. The catalog has passed a number of 6,666 items.


Thank you, everyone, for making Colnect better day by day and thanks to the coordinator, Els Van Gastel [leeuwin], for taking such good care of the tea labels category.



The first use of tea was medical and it started in China, but later on during Tang Dynasty, which lasted from 618 to 917 AD, tea started becoming popular as a recreational drink. Even though in Asia tea was popular it wasn't until the 16th century that it was introduced to Europe.




Today many collectors are collecting tea bags and tea labels and it is considered as one of the bases of large collections. Currently, on Colnect, you can find 554 different brands with 37 themes of tea labels from 72 countries.




Colnect has been built by collectors just like you. Are you interested in contributing to Colnect? Then you can go and check our Catalog Contribution Guidelines page and start making Colnect better.

New Category: Fruit Stickers

We are happy and proud to have added Fruit Sticker category on Colnect. This new and interesting category is now available for fruit sticker collectors around the world. 



At first glance, they may not seem special but when taking a better look fruit stickers meet all criteria to be a good collectible. Very easy to obtain, ends up taking small space, has a big selection of designs, and even the purpose of it varies. Some people are even looking at it as a reward for eating fruits. Even though it is still obscure, the popularity of it grows. So if you are not collecting them yet, might want to give it another thought next time you are about to peel it off of a fruit and throw it out.



You can now use Colnect catalog and collection management tools for fruit stickers. The sorting is available in 9 different ways: kinds of product, countries, products, brands, shapes, compositions, PLU codes, themes, and newly added.



And now the drum roll for the coordinator of fruit stickers category. We would like to introduce Luciano Massalin [lumassa49].
