Anyone get any good philatelic Christmas presents?

Such as a subscription to Stamp Magazine...?

I don't get this - 0 replies are indicated for this thread, which was started in 2011, but a last post is indicated in 2018 with no way to read it. Can someone explain please?

The op reminded me of a small, but appreciated philatelic Christmas present my sister gave me when we were kids - she a few years younger than me. It was a small packet of stamps for stamp collectors - usually enthusiastic young stamp collectors like myself. She wrapped it in just enough wrapping paper to cover the packet and set it on the Christmas tree, but alas, when all the presents had been handed out on Christmas Day, there was no sign of the small packet from my sister to me and she got quite upset at its disappearance, insisting that there definitely was another parcel from her to me. Thankfully she found it, after a lot of rummaging on the floor under the tree.

I did appreciate that small packet of stamps, but the philatelic Christmas gift I would like now would be a GB Stamp Album for my growing collection.

Hi Gillian

every so often these fora get hit by spam posts from folk trying to sell dodgy stuff or offer dodgy services. Whilst the mods & owners can delete all this cr*p it resets the numbers of replies but not the date last updated. Simples!

So Gillian, have you passed your request for GB album to your sister? You can tell her at least *that* won't get lost under the tree! wink

LOL. We no longer exchange presents, Carmen. She's in Surrey and I'm here in Northern Ireland. I'd be better dropping hints to my own family. Her daughter and her boyfriend were visiting here today before heading back home after a holiday. She would have enjoyed that story about the stamps, but I forgot about it until now. Even her talking about her cats playing with the Christmas tree didn't jolt my memory.

Well can't speak for you Gillian, but certainly I'm now at an age (52!) when my mind isn't jogged, and it's only been a week since I saw someone! LOL! Sigh...

Well, since you’re just a youngster to me, Carmen, I consider myself pardonned for my memory not being jogged lol. Thank you!

Hi Gillian

I see you are in Northern Ireland. I am visiting Belfast next month. Any stamp shops or markets you can recommend?

To be honest I don't know Belfast very well and am hardly ever there, but I see from a Google search that The Belfast Stamp Shop is in High Street.

Enjoy your trip!

Gillian
