I lost more than 2/3 of my stamps sets! What I have left fits on a self and a half. I think from now on if you want to know if something is going to retire, all you need to do is ask if I have bought it! LOL

Lost, what are you talking about? a stamp never loses its value. I stamp because I love to. All my stamps get used. I never consider a retired stamp lost. I buy them for me, not my business. the business is a bonus. Think positive!!! Buy, buy, buy, fill up those lonely shelves.. Stamps need friends.. I can't wait to buy more..

Don't get me wrong, I am truely excited about the new catalog, I really can't wait to see The new sets. I say "lost" because I know I won't use them anymore. I will sell them at a discount and buy new sets with the money I make. I used to keep my favorites and say I could never part with them. It took a couple of years to realize that I was so busy having fun with my new favorites that my old retired set just sat on the shelf. If it has been a year without using it, it is a shame to keep it. So now I purge my space clean and have lots of room for the new gems waiting for me to grab up!
