Mrita yes I am doing the same thing. I find it therapeutic as well. I purchased a grab bag online when I was done sorting through my U.S. stamps because I want to come as close to completing the albums as I can.

I have been working exclusively on Machins for the past several months. Seeing Mrita75's pages is giving me WW pains. It might be time to start working on worldwide's again.

Mrita I bought it off of Mystic Stamp. I got a small one (200) because it was the first one I've purchased. I'd say about 35-40% were stamps pre-1960. I had fun with it!

Caution with the last image.
Some plastics leach colour from stamps, rending them worthless.
Coin Pockets especially.

It's a shame regarding shipping costs,
I have 200 or so Vario sheets, sitting in a drawer, I don't use many.

Mrita,

You must be spending a fortune on those Vario pages.

Yes :( I know I know. But as a novice, my priority is to try and get these stamps into a safe place. I Hope not to have to buy many more, or figure out how to get them cheaper.

You should check on eBay. I've found good deals on Vario pages there.

You can also take advantage of Lighthouse's occasional sales. They're having their annual Holiday Sale right now, with everything 20% off until January 21st. Here are the details from the e-mail they sent me:


Quote:
Dear Lighthouse Collector:

This is a friendly reminder that our annual Holiday Sale is in full swing: receive 20% OFF on your order by using Promo Code HSW19 at checkout on www.lighthouse.us or by mentioning the promo code if placing your order via phone or email.

The sale runs from now through January 21, 2020 and the promo code is valid on our entire collection of stamp, coin, and currency collecting supplies, including many new items (please see below).

The promo code can even be applied to already discounted items, which can be found in the "Outlet – Special offers" section on our website.

Lighthouse products make wonderful gifts. What better way to say Happy Holidays to that special collector in your life.

Thanks again for sharing. You definitely have a lot of stamps from a lot of countries, but love that you are enthusiastic about it.

Do you think you will try to specialize on one or several countries/themes at some point, or are you just organizing right now?
