***CHRISTMAS IS COMING!***

CHRISTMAS PURCHASES
If your plans for Christmas this year include stamps (and I find it difficult to imagine a Christmas which doesn't!), you need to know that we will be leaving the country for sunnier (and warmer!) climes on Tuesday 13 December, and not returning until mid-January. Therefore any such purchases need to be made in good time, and last possible despatch date will be SATURDAY 10 DECEMBER... You will also find all sorts of interesting choices for suitable purchases amongst the NEW STAMPS STOCK listed below!

***NEWS***

PLATING SERVICE
My current backlog of plating is now very high - over 500 at this time, so please do not send any plating without speaking to me first - and certainly nothing before next APRIL will be considered anyway! 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: 3.12.2016

Not today's date? We update most days - check you're seeing the latest version - right click in space on every page, then scroll down and left click on 'REFRESH'...
