re: The Big Event is Still On

i wonder how much better response i would get if i just said FREE for everything instead of a small percentage of catalog. People might feel better if they paid a small amount ?

May I suggest you would end up "working" for nothing, spending hours a day stuffing envelopes with stamps and trudging to the post office every day of the week.

Everyone is desperate for a bargain. Even then some folkies would say "can you hold these stamps until I reach an economic level to cover the postage?"

Yes I am an old cynic!

re: The Big Event is Still On

i wonder how many months of my life i have spent going through boxes of close to minimum scott value stamps looking for items that might be of interest to list. Some list anything that comes along...i can't do that.

Education that's what it is. You trawl through the dross and then Bingo!

You find a cover marked "Posted from the Royal Train" in Canada and off you go researching the Royal Tour and who sent the letter to whom.

The remaining dross is dumped in a box and off to the local auction house it goes or you list it here on Stamporama 'cos "one man's dross is another man's treasure".

I totally agree Ian, that's my experience time and time again.
