Very helful seller and a great selection of stamps. When one stamp that I was after didn't arrive in the pack, the seller went to extra lengths to find it and post one out for me. Thank you so much for all your kindness and help. Kind regards, Philippa.

About

Whoever would have thought I would have around one million stamps to sort through!

Well, there is not a lot to say really. It all started out when I bought a huge lot of stamps just from Australia.

Bear in mind I hadn't collected stamps since I was about 10 years old and at the good age of 50 decided to give it another go. Unfortunately, I didn't know where to stop and hence Artypharty was created to ease my bulging collection.

I have one room dedicated to sorting, checking, soaking stamps off envelopes, counting and storing. It's lonely up there, so I bring the stamps to whichever room my husband is in and invariably the stamps get left there until I need them. Thank goodness he is easy going!

My other shop sells Washi tape. I love that, too. You can find that here: www.etsy.com/shop/whitedaisypetals

Thank you for taking the time to read this. It's only a little part of the story.
