Yes, Dauwalders do that. I've had some quite pretty stamps from them.

I haven't got round to sorting my stamps for bringing in to the charity shop, but must do it soon as the little tub where I keep my swaps is getting full.

I have bought little packets of stamps from charity shops. One shop, the RNLI up in beautiful Seahouses, had packets of 20 or so stamps for a pound or two. I had a quick look for them but instead found packets from another charity shop. a Sue Ryder (apparently supplied by a stamp club) with various stamps by country paying usually 5p a stamp (e.g. 18 UN stamps for 90p).

Some charity shops have a basket for people to put in used stamps.

I have been trying to find charities around the world wanting used stamps as donations. I found the Oxfam in Canada website wanting them, but no mention on the US Oxfam website. Turns out one of my penpals has been throwing the stamps on envelopes in the bin... The UK has loads of charities accepting stamps, either direct themselves or via a middleman, but it has been harder to find worldwide ones. I have The Holocaust Project, a couple of veteran (ex-servicemen) charities, churches, but haven't found an equivalent to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), or to other UK charities

I had been looking for some time for an out of print Gibbons New Imperial album set and then in April saw one on Ebay from a charity shop in Southampton. I did a Buy It Now faster than I'd ever done and when it arrived it was pristine. They usually go, if you can even find them, for 250-300 Pounds. This was considerably less. Postage to the US was $30 or so. I got a wonderful set of albums and helped a charity besides. I also doubt they had any idea how scarce this was. Also I helped a charity.
