Welcome to Culture Collection, I thought we would start with the boring stuff; shipping and returns and then you can learn more about our story below.
Culture Collection partners with global merchants and artisans in order to provide you the best prices and the most interesting products. This means that your order is shipped from global areas such as Thailand, Tibet, China, India, etc. via our partnership with USPS.
Because we ship directly from our partners in these countries, your item may take 3-5 weeks to arrive. Please do not panic if it does not show up immediately, it's on its way (please email us for tracking) :)
We offer international shipping options too - no matter where you are, you can buy from us!
No worries! Contact us right away and we'll help guide you through the process - we'll send you a prepaid mailer to send the item back.
WHAT IS POP CULTURE MERCHANDISE?
Here at Culture Collection we don’t place any constraints on what type of merchandise we sell. We tend to sell what the fans want, which results in a huge range of loot including Action Figures, Toys, Collectables, Bobble Heads, Statues, Props, Cards, Games, Graphic Novels & Books, DVD & Blu-Ray, Gifts & Novelties and of course Apparel.
We specialize in licensed merchandise and we stock the big “pop culture” brands from the most popular TV Shows, Movies, Video Games, Musicians, Artists and Designers such as Star Wars, Doctor Who, Game Of Thrones, True Blood, Assassin’s Creed, Halo etc. The list is endless! If you have reached this section of the site then we assume you have had a little taste of the range on here.
THE STORY…… SO FAR…..
Culture Collection started way back in 1993 when the Howard family from Brisbane, Queensland. The kids in the Howard family started collecting NBA Basketball cards whilst on a family holiday in the USA and we recognized that cards were quite an extensive industry in North America and it was an opportunity to bring this industry to Australia.
Over the past 20 years the products that found their way onto our retail shelves started to shift and change. We found that only a proportion of our store was dedicated to cards and that we had a significant Action Figure, Gift and High-End Collectables offering. As such, it was kinda misleading to keep the business called “Card Mania”.
So back in 2009 we transformed the business into Culture Collection. We did this by opening a new flagship Culture Collection Supastore at 124-128 Moorabool Street Geelong, which more accurately showcased our offering to customers. We also launched an on-line store to cater for all those fans who live remotely in Australia and New Zealand.
We also committed to getting out and about doing various shows and conventions around Australia and New Zealand so that we could meet our customers and showcase what we are up to!
SO WHY DID WE OPEN AN ON-LINE STORE IN 2009?
We know ourselves how busy life can be these days. Somehow the world just cranked up a gear over the last 5 years and time became that thing that you used to hang out with…. now just a distant memory!!
Not everyone has time to get down to their local collectables or comic store or to go on dedicated shopping centre tours of duty! So, we are bringing it all right to your home on this (hopefully kick a$$) computer screen! Plus, the world is a very big place and very difficult to shop in one sitting without the help of this whole internetty thing… so welcome to your life www.culturecollection.me
Now you have a one stop shop for all the gear you NEED!
