In the U.S. it seems like more than ever most of the desirable employment opportunities and amenities that younger generations want are found in a few dozen large cities. As a result real estate in these markets is becoming very expensive and is causing many working and middle class individuals and families into smaller apartments, condos, and homes. In areas on the west coast it is not uncommon to see apartments occupied by several unrelated roommates due to unaffordable housing prices, cramming more people into smaller spaces. Micro apartments are also becoming popular with units often encompassing less than 300 square feet in space.

In these circumstances collecting becomes much harder and I would think smaller collectables such as coins and jewelry would become some of the only viable collections to have since they are usually fairly compact and can fit into a small safe or safety deposit box.

Your Thoughts?

A Stamp collection can be even more compact.

Your idea seems very logical. If people are collecting anything, small things seem to be the way to go. If I lived in downtown San Francisco I would certainly not be collecting cars.

Of course if you are sharing a place security is of considerable concern.

You HAVE to be able to trust those who you cohabit with.
Otherwise, valuable collections of anything are not possible.
That includes coin collections.
Especially if there are illegal drug takers among you. Compact collections can be even more attractive to them,
because small items are more easily stolen, and not immediately missed.
