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!
