Postcards

When you go on holiday do you find yourself sending postcards home? Its a funny thing we do because generally we don’t see people for a week or two without feeling the need to send them something, but as soon as we leave the country the first thing we do is send home a postcard, if not to rub it in that we are away and they are not! Collectable postcards are proof that this a long standing habit. Whether you do or you don’t, collectable post cards can be a great collection!

Stamp Collector?

Collectable Stamps

I personally never saw stamp collecting as more than a business. I always knew I could buy high quality rare stamps online and also knew that there was a local base of high end collectors around london, so dedicating a part of the antiques and collectables shop to stamps was no more than a clever business idea. However Collectable Stamps turned out to be a fun and interesting pastime, each stamp has been somewhere, done something – and more so represents a period in history and a postal system ruled by a monarchy – stamp collecting is more fun than you would think!
