Nineteen shopping days left at Ian Kimmerly Stamps. Saturday, September 27th will be the last day we are open to customers. We don’t know how much we’ll have left by then, but drop by anyway if only to say goodbye.
Please join us. We look forward to thanking customers of over more than 30 years in our retail store. This will be a chance to meet fellow collectors and socialize after our regular day at 62 Sparks Street.
Light refreshments will be served.
The first 200 attendees will receive a special limited edition souvenir envelope.
Even as we get to the end of our lease at the end of September, we continue to add more collections to the web site. They are all great buys & can be found by searching 4hC & now 4jC in our web site search feature or by scrolling through the new listings section. Crystal has been busy adding Canada, Great Britain, some scarce used Djibouti & a nice assortment of world stamps to the web site.
Possibly our final printed flyer was mailed out four weeks ago. If you didn’t get a copy in the mail, please check it out using the Features link above.
The Dutch Auctions will be going on hiatus. Ian hopes to start them up again once he gets settled in Victoria.
However, the Dutch Auction lots already launched will continue to the end dates in the system. So if you haven’t taken a look yet, please do. The 130 lots ending September 14th. have had some spirited bidding already & a number have already been won.
Good luck & good hunting.
David has been busy adding mint Canada along with mint Great Britain to the red boxes. As well there lots of new collections up front, including many better ones that are in the showcases. We have had to add a second table up front to accommodate all the collections.
As we get closer to closing we are letting our stock of philatelic supplies sell down. However, if you don’t see what you need, we are still happy to order it in for you. Just see David, Stein or Crystal.
We are now offering used Manilla stock sheets at 25 cents each. Grab some before they’re all gone.
The gently used stock books & other used supplies have been selling well, so we’ve been busy filling up the section. Stop by & save some money. There is also more literature added to the front sale table.
As well, all the fixtures & fittings are for sale, so if there’s something you can use come & get it before it’s too late.
Sparks Auctions sale #15 is almost completely shipped, and moving is scheduled for September 22nd to the new location at 1550 Carling, Suite #202. You can learn more at the Sparks Auctions web site.
