Malaya 10cAs one month closes and another begins we find ourselves with plenty of new items that bear reporting.  The past couple of weeks have seen us putting a major push on putting better Canada into our inventory.  Used Pence and Cents issues plus quality mint and used material from the period of later Victoria.  More high quality mint coils have been added to our inventory to give a better selection to those whom collect by either pairs or strips of four.  The British Empire has been an area which has been added to quite extensively.  Stamps from Malaya, Straits Settlements and the surrounding area have been added.  Better New Zealand material is new to inventory.  Also, British Caribbean material has been added, with St. Vincent leading the way.

Future Plans — 2014 and Beyond

The Retail Store at 62 Sparks Street

One thing we know for certain — the building will be completely empty on September 30, 2014. The store that one customer called “the most beautiful stamp shop in the country, if not the world,” will be closing.

Our lease ends on that date. Our staff has been aware of the move out of Sparks Street for about two years.

So during the next four months we expect to offer significantly more new material than usual. We will be working our way through boxes and albums which we have bought but not yet prepared for sale — some of which have been awaiting our attention for years. And we continue to purchase really nice stamps. Therefore the opportunity to find fresh new stock in the store and online will increase over the next six months. Continue reading
