March Specials ... Airmail Postage & DX Supplies

Dear Customer,
Below are DX supply Offers and news for MARCH  2018. 

DX Supplies 2018:  Sorry to say, but I do not plan to restock Euro or stateside envelopes once they sell out. Envelope sales for 2017 were half the envelope sales of 2016, and a dismal 20%  of what I sold in 2013. I know 2018's selling pace will be even slower. Below are listed new envelope ordering options designed to maximize sales based on what I have on hand.  QSL Albums and pages will not be restocked either, once supply is exhausted. At this point, it just doesn't make sense to re-stock items that take so long to sell...or not to sell.   

DX Postage: Some countries will be deleted over time, when supply is exhausted.  US Discount postage offers will continue, as this is the only area of my business that shows continued annual jumps in growth. It's something.  Fountain Pens: Delighted to hear from one contact doing Ebay selling. She has purchased a number of vintage fountain pens and mechanical pencils during the past few weeks, so this area might finally get some traction. Hopefully, giving me the opportunity to buy more, restore them and do quicker re-sales. Restoring these old gems can be a challenge, but it's fun and rewarding.  I'll continue my pen selling efforts at local flea/craft fairs and hamfests. It's a day out to socialize at least...a good break from the computer. I have 12 events planned for this year---will certainly add 5+ new ones. Most are usually listed with 2 weeks or less lead time...At least ones I attended last year give me a month+ heads up.

 DISCOUNT POSTAGE!!:  The Forever stamps I have listed below in the grid are in full sheets mostly. Final 300 Single Forever stamps: minimal effort to remove from backing paper. Offered CHEAP!! 300 for only $120.00  Email me to reserve this final batch.
