One thing I have discovered over the years, is that every Disney fans has something they love to collect. Whether it be park maps, pressed pennies, Disney pins, stuffed animals, t-shirts or anyone of the thousands of things, everyone has their favorite collections.
Michele has called me a pack rat because I collect lots of different things. One of the best things if you are a collector, is showing others what you have in your collection. I have so many things that I couldn’t pick my absolute favorite. With social media and the impact it has on the world, most collectors have friends online who live no where near them and they would never be able to share their collection except through pictures in email or on one of the many social media platforms. But now there is a new way. Gemr, is a social community for collectors to share their collection, see what others have and also buy, sell and trade items.
Here are some of the details about Gemr:
- It’s free to join, and users can organize, showcase, buy, sell, and trade their items on the platform
- Gemr is a place to connect with others who share the same passion as you
- Users can follow specific people, comment on items and collections and private message other collectors
- Join clubs that interest you- Disney, Disney Pins, Marvel, Star Wars, Tsum Tsums, Dolls, Funko, etc.
- You don’t have to sell your items, you can simply showcase them
Gemr is available from your desktop or your phone/mobile device with their app. You can download either the iOS or Android app for your phone, create your profile and start adding things to your collection.
Some of the great features of the app are:
- Quick Collect: Upload multiple items at once
- Chat: Private message your friends
- Activity Feeds: See what others are doing on Gemr
You may be asking yourself, why are we hearing about this on The Main Street Mouse. Well, The Main Street Mouse is working with Gemr and giving away a $25 Disney Gift Card.
