I’m still doing the postcrossing project this month. But buying cards and mostly stamps, can get a bit expensive when you just paid three-hundred euro’s to a veterinarian. Because I need to live on a budget this month, I decided to search online for discounted stamps. And to my surprise, they exist!
Basically, they are not really discounted. It are just ‘old’ stamps. Not old enough for stamp collectors to keep, but old enough not to be sold in the post offices anymore although they are still valid. And because stamp collectors often buy large stacks of stamps, these stamps are sold with a discount up to 30%. Hurray!
It was kind of exciting waiting for the stamps to be delivered. Which stamps will it be? Will I recognize any of them? But with everything mail delivered, you need to have a bit of patience. It took FIVE DAYS to get the stamps delivered… Today they arrived! And I did not recognize any of them. Most of the stamps turned out to be older than me.
