Hello, yes am back again and I hope you like these. I just loaded some nice quality Australia to my Bidstart Store. Priced for a Christmas present to you. Of course, as I hope you also know, you can get my cddstamps tweezers for free as a Christmas present for yourself if you spend $15, or close to, excluding postage. Lots of customers have bought and got a few pairs so I think they must like them. I use them all the time and think they are really good. These two stamps are from the 1979 (SG 567, the $5 value) and the 1977 (Sg 567a the $10 value) Paintings issue. Some 35 plus years ago and in lovely condition. Check out all country listings here, not too many as I keep to a more specialised GB and Commonwealth selection with a good range and prices to meet your budget. More Christmas specials over coming days as I find time between parties :-) Best wishes Michael www.cddstamps.com

Hello, and welcome to December. Christmas just 24 days away. What are you treating yourself to for Christmas? I got my presents, all stamps. They all arrived, and with being so busy I have not even opened them all yet. These I did open. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
The 1947 Air Mail issue. Lovely and in mint unhinged condition. A nice addition to my aviation collection. Not even touched by hand I might add, well by me anyway, as I use my tweezers. You can have a pair for free if you buy from my Bidstart Store before Christmas. My Christmas present to you. Please visit http://cddstamps.com/bidstart-sales/ and enjoy. I have a very good selection from some 14 British Commonwealth countries and a reasonable selection for 15 others. Over 11300 listing to chose from. Treat yourself for Christmas and get a pair of my tweezers for free. Best wishes.. Michael www.cddstamps.com

Hello, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Just a short post tonight as I thought you might enjoy seeing these stamps that I found sorting my stock today. Always nice to find something with good catalogue value and in lovely condition. The bottom one is SG 31 with 2013 GB catalogue of £65. The top one, also looks lovely and I do like the design. It is also SG 31 but sadly it is lightly creased when seen from the reverse but as I say still nice to see I think. Have a great weekend Michael www.cddstamps.com

Hello, I picked up a few copies of the new Hong Kong Christmas stamps in the Miniature Sheet this past weekend. Hope you like these. I think they are rather attractive, certainly different. I have had no more emails of people sending me images of their country Christmas stamps, so perhaps I don't have many readers these days. Such is life. If you are a reader then this special just for you. I am promoting this no where else. Order US $10.00 of stamps from my Bidstart Store at My Bidstart Store/ I have over 11,000 lots to chose from to fill a gap or two or more in your collection and be one of the first 5 orders and I will use this Miniature sheet as postage. More postage than I need but you will like the cancelled MS as I will get it hand franked for you as well. enjoy your stamps.. Best wishes.. Michael www.cddstamps.com

Thanks to one of my regular readers who will be receiving my customer Christmas present very soon.

Been a long day, so time for some stamps to help me relax :-)

Hello, welcome to another week. A week closer to Christmas.  what? some 40 days now I think. I bet you haven't bought yourself a Christmas present yet? Have you?  I have ..   and I even have a few more to buy myself.  Yes stamps, oh and a lovely fountain pen I saw yesterday.  It was hard but I resisted,  maybe next weekend.

Anyway, for your Christmas present you can find some excellent material in my Bidstart Store   click and type Edward in  the Search for field,  and don't forget, you are likely to get my Customer Christmas present as well, for free.  Last nights customer had his mailed today.

I finally made some time to load a few GB Edward VII. More to come in coming days. The above is SG 273, Deep Rose Red with a lovely cancel, I think you will agree.

Enjoy
