Some of you may be aware that I have been selling my surplus older Discworld stamps on Etsy - in small 'CBE' *  bags containing an average of 12 stamps - but some of you may not know anything about that... so I thought it was about time to flag it up on here.

You don't have to be a member to buy from Etsy - you can sign in as a guest - and you can pay via Paypal or credit card just as you would from most auction sites and shops.  

The Etsy 'shop' is called 'FarfetchedPhilately' by the way, you will also find some of my other stamps there - mostly Halloween theme at the moment but I will update that during the year.

Below are some sample bags of stamps, to give an idea of average contents. I cannot guarantee you will find a sport in every bag as they are selected completely at random, and posted entirely at random (I pick from the middle of the pile) however you will receive a good selection of the harder-to-find (nowadays!) stamps from 2003 - 2008.

Feel free to PM me here if you have any queries, and DO post up here anything special you might find in a bag as this might help newer collectors to know what to look out for.

To explain the label... so many years have passed since I worked on the original Discworld stamps that I have had to start explaining who I am to newer stamp collectors, as neither Alan Batley's or my name appears anywhere on the Emporium information.  

At least there is still a link via the old 'Wanted by the Watch' LBE.

My Etsy shop - FarFetchedPhilately - is now open again :-)

I bought 5 and enjoyed opening them immensely.  I found several items to add to my albums, too, since I didn't realize that there were 'real' Discworld stamps until about 8 months after the first were produced.  I may have to snaffle a few more as Hogswatch prezzies for myself.Smile
