Some more materials to make a plant nursery look more like a landscape. 160m2 of natural sandstone pavers, 60 of 2.4 treated pine sleepers, 40 lattice panels 1.8m x .9m. Still need 8m3 crusher dust & 4m3 of brickies loam + cement. My son arrives tomorrow to put it all in place. Am a tradesman bricklayer/stone mason but can I manage to do the labouring and still cut the stone with hand tools. It is impossible for me to lay the pavers. Took a while to find the masonary tools + a hand cement mixer called a "Larry" which looks like a hoe with two holes in it.



15 smaller UV stable plastic ponds for our miniature water lilies.

John,
you need a course in organisation !

How do you manage to get so many stamps on the floor Yikes!

I would have ditched the cost of the containers, and gone for these organisers for bulk..........
Perhaps you may have problems with humidity up there?
You can always drape a sheet over, to prevent dust.

Thanks Rod. Very much like your comments.

The way my work room looks now is how our lounge room looked. Can you picture how happy my wife is. lol

Have sorted 50kg + into denominations in a month. That is what happens even after I do spot pick ups.

The benches are from doing a huge amount of kiloware lots.

Interesting that you could see the organised need and that is how I am moving in bit by bit to figure out how to organise this monster. Have 4 tubs of world kiloware lots. 4 tubs for very recent Australia Kiloware. 3 tubs of sorted other denominations. When I get a change will turn whats on the benches into a mixed kiloware lot. Have 4 tubs of kiloware Australia that I will mix into a very good cheaper mix. But I need a new dryer to do that.

The bench top right of the TV is my very recent Australia sheet stamp issues. Not to many of those on the floor. They are all off paper. Thinking about selling them in sets of 5 for 60% -70% face value + all my other stock into lots of 5 as well. That open stock book is full as and have a tub full of zip lock plastic bags for all $1 sheet stamp issues sort!

Still have over 20 tubs that I do not know whats in them yet.

Right, thought you were getting out of stamp sales.

Forget the Tub idea, the $88 is just for the frame...not the tubs
Therefore, hugely expensive.
False advertising...(as usual)

This Australia wide charity I receive my stamps from has many parts to it and all the stamps end up with one person to whom I buy my stamps off them.
Many of the charity collection stations are closing their doors, never to collect stamps/kiloware again. When they finish sorting they clean their areas out and all sorts of odds and ends are coming my way. Sadly the amount of very recent Australia stamps is slowing to the point that the main charity worker is strongly thinking about stopping it all.
Am set to purchase every stamp that this charity offers me. Purchase all the stamps that are sent to me! Do not get a chance to look 1st.

A very nice change in the Australia kiloware market.

Have not seen this amount of buyers this time of year ever. Basically have only kiloware lots listed. So I do not know how stamps from 2000 to now are selling.

From 4th Dec to 9th Jan have sold 10 lots of $1 comm's only kiloware on paper. Even sold a 70c lot of comm's only today. Do not think I sold any 70c kiloware last year.

Have sold very little beginning of Dec to the end of Jan in all my years on eBay.

How are others doing with recent Australia. Meaning 2000 to now?
