none. family and pets are way more valuable than my stamps. sorry if you didn't get the answers you wanted. But stamps are replaceable family isn't.

Hummm, I think I would just open up the window in my craft room and throw out as much as I possibly could before the flames reached me. Well, OK, I would be sure that my kids, DH and bulldog get out first! BUT...if I HAD to pick just 5:

Voila
Bubble Queen
Teriffic Tulips
Best of Cluck
Totally Cool

What can I say, I like the "fun" cards more.

First, I would grab all of my scrapbooks and I mean all of them. I would make my hubby get some too...You can replace a lot of things, you can even replace the pictures, but you can not replace all of that work that you put into them. I should probaqbly start taking pictures and storing them online so that I can recreate them if soemthing happens and I can't get them out...oh how sad!

But the stamp sets that I would bring with me would be (please note that I'm at work and can't log on to check the correct spelling):
Stamp of Authenticity, Office Accourtement, Be Happy, Big Deal Alpha, and Short Order Alpha.

This is a really creative question for a thread!

ROFL, some people are too funny...

Since the question asks what stamp sets you would save and not "What would you save if your house was on fire" I don't think there is cause for debate here, but I guess debate is always ever present

Anyway, here are my FIVE FAVS/most-used sets

Little Pieces
Classic Alphabet
Girlfriends
Girlfriend Accessories
Sincere Salutations

I do think it would be smart to pick retired sets b/c the others you can re-buy.

I've fortunately never lost belongings in a fire but I did have a crop-in-style XXL filled with stamp sets and other supplies stolen from the trunk of my minivan before. That happened over 2 years ago and I am still recovering emotionally

If I had time after my family was safe, I would save my scrapbooks. Stamps can be replaced.

This is EXACTLY what I was thinking before I saw your comment!! LOL! I have a huge window in my room.... I would throw them out and follow with albums. OF course, that's after my DH and Bud were safe.

My Fav 5 right now are:
Fishin'
Bow Wow
Like It a Latte
What's Brewin
Garden Pleasures
(All Retired and hard to replace!)

Hmmm. This is hard, only 1% of my sets. I'd probably go for the ones that you can't get anymore and those that are pricey.

Tall Tales Alphabet for sure
besides that, I really don't know.
