Canada postal service
disruption news

Canada Post and two of the postal workers' unions have been in a labour dispute for some time. Negotiations have been ongoing, however the unions today (Oct. 17) announced that they would commence rotating strikes (a different city each time for 24 hours) beginning Monday October 22. Canada Post has replied, saying that they would continue service, to expect delays and that Canada Post are committed to negotiations.

The good news is that both sides are still talking, with a government appointed mediator involved. The most recent information from Canada Post is available on this page.

We are continuing to ship until we get notice of a complete stoppage from either side. US and international orders should be out of the country quickly and not subject to any serious slowdown. Canadian orders should get through with a few days delay. There is some risk that Canadian orders could get caught in a work stoppage, but that is a risk we will have to take.

We are continuing to ship all orders until a complete mail stoppage is announced. If that happpens, we will cease shipping at that time until the dispute is resolved. If you prefer that we hold your order(s) until normal mail service resumes, please tell us in the comments section when checking out.

Thank you for your understanding.

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!

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.
