You don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy collecting stamps, Andrew explains why…
When you go to a stamp fair, order online or bid in an auction, you’re almost always buying stamps priced against catalogue value. One of the biggest problems when I collected stamps 47 years ago was that the stamps I wanted always seemed to cost more than I could afford! Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but with the benefit of hindsight I suppose the problem was that I hadn’t set my collecting boundaries to my budget.
Why does everything you collect have to be related to catalogue value?
The answer is, it doesn’t! There’s nothing wrong with catalogue values per se, but it’s simply that this is the philatelic industry norm. I set out to break industry norms, creating my enormously popular off-paper world mixtures club more than 30 years ago.
Ask yourself… Would you enjoy picking stamps at low unit prices regardless of catalogue value? Would you enjoy forgetting the prices? Would you enjoy the thrill of making a find and paying pence to do so?
Well, now you can. If you’re a real collector, not an investor, I’m putting the fun back into philately so you can enjoy collecting how it used to be. It’s not a club, but it feels like one… Like me, you may remember swapping stamps, and in order for you to test my Avon World Mixtures I’m offering you the opportunity to select your 1st 500 stamps FREE so that you can see for yourself how much fun there is to be had from the trial mixture bag.
If you don’t like the idea of forgetting catalogue prices and paying pence per stamp, this offer is not for you. If you collect high-end stamps costing £100’s each then this is probably not for you too. But if you enjoy sorting through stamps, seeing what you may find and enjoying the simple pleasure of adding inexpensive stamps to you collection, then this is for you. All you need to do is complete the request form and (if you’re aged 18+ and NEW to Avon World Mixtures) you can pick up to the 1st 500 stamps FREE, plus the chance to select other country stamps at low unit prices regardless of catalogue value.
