STU1967 are Stuart and Sharon Woodhouse, both 49 y.o. We live just outside the Famous Brecon Beacons National Park in South West Wales- United Kingdom.
I started collecting stamps as a kid for several years but the interest waned ,but was drawn back into stamps back in the mid 1990's when I did some work for another stamp dealer which gave me the 'bug' again.
How and when did we start ?
Initially we traded in 1999 ,with our humble goods to the large stamp dealers in London ,we survived on crusts for years. Ebay came along and we cut our then 'middleman' for a while. I now see eBay as a 'middleman' becoming more greedier, gradually adjusting its fee's to feed the 'Fat Cats' . Just look at how poor the quantity of stamps now remain from a once Mecca of stamping interest.
This website first started in 2006 with a couple of hundred lots that I would have normally of listed on eBay each week, now with over 63,000 lots and growing on average at 200 lots per week it must be one of the bigger and better stamp webshops?
Please let me know if there are any 'Dead Ends' or 'Broken Threads' on the site and I'll try my hardest to resolve the issues.Keep coming back too,I'm going to be added extra lots daily.
Please buy with confidence.I may have 7800+ positive feedbacks on eBay ,but over 12,500 transactions,that averages 5 lots per EVERY single customer!
We sell mostly on paper mixtures from Great Britain and Northern Europe and Scandanavia ,but also Australia and off paper mixtures.I also get hold of Britsh Issues used pretty quickly after being released.
Also we have added a large amount of Canadian stamps, Australia and New Zealand. Eventually we'd like to be able to list the whole world as we do have substantial stock of recent world but time dictates everyday what we are able to achieve.
