Just thought I would share my last auction win with you. Was browsing a Norwegian auction site and saw an auction for 1 kg (about 2,2 pounds) of Norwegian kiloware with only 20 minutes to go. No bid so far, and starting at 1 krone (18 American cents). The shipping was reasonable, so I figured why not bid 1 krone and see what happens. And sure enough, no more bidders, so I just bought it for 18 cents.

Hopefully its not totally picked for anything useful.

I do get a (some would say twisted) pleasure from winning "Free Shipping" lots on eBay with a bid of less than $0.50. Let us know what you get.

Great sounding buy yobo!

The repayments per month would be very reasonable.

The user name yobo sounds very Aussie.

Happy Stamping KGV.

yobo might be aussie. Found the word in an English poem in high school and took a liking to it, adopting it as my internet name.

Working on a payment plan as we speak, was hoping to get it over 12 months.

Hey, well done Yobo! Any more deals like that? Stick them in a bottle and float them down to me in Scotland - thereby saving on postage
Look forward to hearing what surprises you find in your kiloware bargain...

Will let you know if I find anything exciting. I hope to find some good cancellations, especially from my local area. And maybe fill some holes in my Norwegian collection in the 1990s.

Well, there is no getting any fast ones over on Yobo!

You don't have to worry about competition from me after all. --- I went to the site, but it's not in english and no option to view in english. You are safe until I learn Norwegian!!

I have started sorting through the kiloware. Not the best I've worked with, a lot of the same stamps. But I have found some interesting cancellations, and are having fun working with it, so can't really complain.

I've finished sorting through the kiloware, so here is the conclusion whether you want it or not.

A bit to much excess paper for my taste. There was a lot of the same stamps, but this didn't bother me that much since there was a good spread of postmarks on these. Mainly from the 1950s or late 1980/early 1990s. I don't think I found any new stamps for my collection, but I found some SON-cancellations that will up the quality of my collection.

All in all, it was worth the money I spent on it.
