I’m baaaack!

Right now my main concern is reducing the amount of MNH material. I live in Florida and even with Air Conditioning AND a dehumidifier, I still struggle to keep the humidity in my stamp den below 50%. I’m a strong believer that we are caretakers of our philatelic holdings, so I strive to do no damage. So I’ll be posting lots of MNH lots. But, there will also be used and MH classics.

Many of you remember my approval books from many years ago. They were a load of fun and I sold thousands of stamps, but they are very time consuming. My collections have been woefully neglected, so I’m opting to sell for much less in exchange for more time. Instead I’m going to sell in WHOLESALE BULK LOTS at a fraction of catalog or estimated value. So if you love a bargain take a look! If any of the other sellers want to buy them to resell individually that would be fine by me. Winking

Expect to see oodles of USA, Australia, Great Britain, Channel Islands, Germany, New Zealand, United Nations, Japan, Canada, Vatican, Austria, Scandinavia, Venezuela and more.

Thank you for taking a peek at my auctions!

re: Philatelia is back in the game

Awwww thank you so much! Now that I’m puttering on my stamps again, I wonder how I could have set them aside! I’m having so much fun, that’s for sure. And selling for me isn’t about making top dollar, it’s more about clearing out the clutter and getting them into the hands of another collector. I mean, sure, I like to recover some of my expenditures so I can afford to buy stamps on my wishlists, but it isn’t all about the money. I truly believe that the more philatelists that look over material, the better. What good are those stamps doing sitting in my red boxes or stock books? Not much. That’s why I price so low. I also don’t want to run an online store, I just want them to go to a good home and go into an album somewhere. I’m not uninformed or naive - if I set a low price, I know the value of my stamps and I’m willingly, happily giving a friend here a good deal. Besides, I’d rather make friends than make a buck.

Happy stamping!

I totally get that. And that's why I've been selling old covers on eBay. As I go through the boxes it's obvious that most of them have spent their entire lives of 50-100 years in someone's duplicate box. When you find 5 of the exact same cover, all serviced by the same person, it's obvious that they've been together since new. So my goal is to send them where they'll finally find a forever home!
