Welcome friend!! So after looking around any idea on what you might be looking for? Remember if possible to get samples before you take the leap!! Especially if it's a chip company that you have never held their chips before! Classic casino, casino used. Semi customs. China clay, ceramics. (Big hit currently sunfly hybrid ceramics) lots to learn and tons of fun collecting... but for many of us this is very very addictive, try to set goals and limitations... if you fail horribly and find yourself moving money around to barely pay bills... welcome to the Scrub Donkeys!!! If theres anything we can help with, everyone has questions... feel free to shoot me a PM anytime! Fellow Chipper Ben

Hi . I recently ordered a sample set from CPC and also from Apache of some Paulsons to compare. What Set I saw that I want that I cannot get is the Aurora Star Hot Stamp tournament set. They are amazing. Also I am into the more bright colors like the hot pinks and bright blues but it’s hard to find

Welcome to the forum man!

Aurora Star Hot Stamp set is a really good set. Beautiful colors.

The last guy that posted a wanted ad for these, got himself a set in less than 24hrs.

You just never know if you can score. Once you've got enough posts, it may be worth posting an ad for a set or samples as nobody else has one for either at present. Wanted ads are a helpful tool to get the word out you want to buy a set.

Take care and watch your budget and you will have a good time here. So many nice helpful people that will be always be willing to provide good information to help you make the right choices.

I am the same. However, I’ve enjoyed participating here.

I’ve stopped checking Facebook as much. Spent more time here and found more enjoyment.

It really is a close tight-knit type of community vibe here. Starting with @Ben8257 . He is a super nice guy. He helped me get started when I was getting my feet wet just over a year ago. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help from just about any senior member here.

Have you been able to sample any chips for a start? Or perhaps you are still figuring out that part. All in due time. I rushed to get started in Paulsons and ended up selling my first set without even using it. It was rather inefficient, but it was also easy to sell here, so it's a double edged sword.

Nothing wrong with skipping sampling and diving in. I would still suggest samples of the sorts that Interest you and go from there. Sample sets are easily bought and sold here too, in the Classifieds!

I'm always here to lend an ear if you ever needed. I'm still learning my way, but I've been active and I have a couple sets, and I've picked up a few things that may be able to help you.

Cheers friend! Happy chipping!

Im 41, and before PCF, I had no online persona of any kind. I've still never had Facebook, messengers, or Instagram account. Nil.

As you say, PCF all the way! Haha
I’m 36 here. I’ve only had Facebook. Probably had it over 10 years and have made only 10 posts. I do enjoy seeing what’s going on in the lives of old friends - so I mainly lurk in the shadows.

A couple months here and I’m up to a couple hundred (edit: only 130 :cool) messages. I feel like that’s pretty good in comparison. :)

I bought a sample set of lady luck paulsons from apache and waiting for them to ship. Also I ordered a sample set of Key west chips as well. I was thinking of using these to see how they feel and go from there.
