It's that time of year again!

Time for our Christmas Mail "No shipping" holiday.

Many years of experience have taught us that it does not pay to mail orders into the Christmas mail rush.

Letters and parcels mailed in the few weeks before Christmas, frequently arrive at the same time as those mailed immediately after the rush is over, if they arrive at all! And this year, things are even worse due to the recent postal strikes causing a tremendous backlog at the main sorting centres.

So every December, we take a "no shipping" holiday. The website remains open, we process orders as normal, we are here to answer correspondence, but nothing is mailed until December 27th.

Orders currently on hand will be mailed as normal, but there is no guarantee they will arrive by Christmas. Orders received from December 2 on will be held for mailing December 27. (Canada Post says they wouldn't get there before Christmas anyway!)

We would rather keep your stamps here safely, rather than lose them in the Christmas mail crush!
Thanks 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!

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.
