    Hello, I would like to start collecting vintage fireworks.
    Without giving away any secrets, how/where does one source these things? Appreciate the value is in their rarity but I've found nothing.
    Does anyone have any advice on how I can start?

    Hi welcome
    As a collector that had a 10 year break from it when i got back into collecting this year i was pleasantly surprised by the availability of stuff once you know where to look! It really depends on which period you are into. Everyone i have dealt with uses this site on and off, im sure they will be in touch. Not sure about the rules on sticking other peoples websites on the forum so i wont as to not tread on peoples toes. It's a small community but we all seem very passionate about the subject.
    Good luck

    Hi True Blue I have been collecting for 6 or 7 years and can say every vintage firework I have acquired has come from members of this forum. What Era do you want to collect ? You will be surprised of what is still out there. It can be an expensive hobby and even frustrating at times but very rewarding

    Good luck with your collection
