***CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AT STURMINSTER STAMPS?***

We leave for sunnier climes at the crack of dawn on MONDAY 12 DECEMBER, not returning until 9 JANUARY next year. If therefore you want to order stamps to arrive in time for Christmas, you have only got TWO WEEKS to place your orders. Last despatch will be on FRIDAY 8 DECEMBER - let your better halves know!

***OTHER NEWS***

PLATING SERVICE
My current backlog of plating is rising again! 300+ at this time - so please do not send any plating without speaking to me first. Because of travel and other commitments, nothing before FEBRUARY will now be considered. Unsolicited plating, sent without prior contact, will be automatically relegated to the bottom of the heap, in the 'Maybe One Day' basket...

The last EBAY LIST has long since finished - hopefully I will be able to find time to load a new list soon! Just click on the link at the bottom of this page...and HAPPY HUNTING!

LATEST UPDATE: 24.11.2017
