We are "Collection Liquidators"

Unlike most stamp dealers, we do not try to stock any particular area or type of stamps.

We buy collections and break them down. We never know what the next collection will bring to us.

The key to our site is that we start with reasonable prices and then aggressively discount anything that doesn't sell.

Everything must go!

What's the Bargain Bin?

One of those elusive items! Our goal with this site is to offer collectors a place to acquire great stamps for their collections at great prices -- including those elusive inexpensive items!

From a business standpoint, the only way we can offer such inexpensive stamps, and deeply discounted stamps, is to save on labor. You save because we don't spend time filing and entering data into a database.

The Bargain Bin is organized by logical categories, but within each category, the fun is in the browsing!

It's like going through a dealer's inventory at a stamp show. If you are the type of collector who only wants to zero in on a specific catalogue number, the Bargain Bin won't be your cup of tea. You can do that in our "Better stamps" inventory (see the menu). But if you enjoy going through those "red boxes" at a dealer's table at a stamp show, never knowing what will attract your attention, this site was built for you!

Enjoy!

We're just getting started!

A great stamp! We hope you find some great stamps for your collection right away, but if not, please don't give up on us!

We have only started stocking the website. We have dozens and dozens of stockbooks and collections of stamps waiting to be broken down. Our goal is to add at least a couple of thousand items per month.

Visit the site regularly and check out the "New Additions" list on this page, or better yet, join our e-mail mailing list for an (approximately) once a month e-mail update.

Important Notice!

Canada is facing the prospect of a postal strike, beginning as early as July 2. We can also anticipate a worker slowdown leading up to the final days prior to the deadline. Mail caught in the pileup that results from such a shutdown has historically had a much higher chance of loss.

Accordingly, we will not be mailing after Monday June 27. Items to USA and international buyers mailed on Monday should be safely out of the country by the deadline. Unfortunately items mailed to Canadian addresses cannot be guaranteed to be delivered before the strike deadline, except for Xpresspost deliveries to Ontario and Quebec (at extra cost).

Any orders not paid for by Sunday, and any orders destined for Canadian addresses by regular mail will be held until the strike situation is resolved.
