Hi everyone

Is anybody saving postage stamps for charity this year? I know we had the Serbian charity last year and I have been saving so wondered if anybody wanted some.

Thanks very much

I have been saving mine since last year, had forgotten what they were for, so am glad to be reminded. I will have more after christmas, but in these days of emails etc, don't seem to get many.

Generally they are sold , by weight , to stamp collectors which is why it pays not to leave too much paper around the outside edges of the stamps

Will it fetch a higher price for stamp collector to bid if is from overseas?
