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.

You can not beat that 1st hand stamp experience!

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?

Just over 12 month since I last posted here.

Changes to incoming kiloware from my charity have 1/2 again over the last 12 months.

Sold out of kiloware last Nov and a lot of people had no idea I am the last person they can find selling the $1 issues being kiloware comm's only on paper.

My eBay listing for Australia $1 issues comm's only on paper kiloware now sells as soon as I list it.

The cost was $35 per 100g. Next listing will be $55 per 100g or 450 stamps on paper per 100g. Not in a hurry to sell.

Am listing only 4 lots of a 100g per time to help others get a chance to buy. Long term buyers are being looked after by us.

Still have 90kg kiloware on paper.Being 20kg x 70c & below era. 70kg of 60c & below to sort. Am trying to get the 60c era and below back log out of the way.

Truly have to know your stamps to sort large amounts of kiloware.

Am left with some very nice Australia kiloware on paper. Approx 60kg and this will grow quickly. Will start selling it at $25 per kg in our eBay store.

Kiloware was the way I started getting into stamp at 6 years and it looks like I will stop stamps when my kiloware source goes. So I will finish with kiloware. Nice to have the $1 sheet stamps kiloware as back stop. Happy Days!

My stock of Australia off paper used from 1992 to 2015 fills 6 plastic tubs with well over 1,500 different listings.

Also still have 5kg $1 sheet/gum stamp kiloware on paper + 2 x 32 page stock books with mostly 25 of everything.

It will not be long and this $1 gum kiloware is going to cost over $2 per stamp in bulk lots.

This is a postmark that I have been collecting since 2016 while sorting the $1 stamps. In all this time to now have only collected full strikes and only 100g or 450 stamps on paper of this type postmark has come my way. So yes this is a very rare postmark with full strikes it has been a great find. Something truly to be reported concerning this info.

Great score Rod. The OZ $ has improved a bit but still not buying much from overseas. How about yourself?

Found most of my Interpost from an auction house in NZ for years. Use to pay around $150 to $200 per kg.

Have a customer for a long time now. We have shared life in a big way. It is not the norm for me on line but in person watch out-:). It just happens like that to me. They are now 86 years and 1 just about to have 80th birthday. When am sorting international post stamps and some nice H/V's + .5kg of very recent goes their way twice a year now at no cost. Not even for mailing. The wife takes stamps off paper to sell and it keeps her sane. There is something about this couple. So long as I'm doing this they get free stamps from me. Now to give an idea they have gone through a major nightmare with illness. Having miracle surgery and recovery outcomes. What can I say.......Someone who knows me very well let me know whatever and shows me what to do.

Have not bought anything for well over a year John, excepting some petty stamps like the International and some indo China.

I have spent perhaps circa $180 on catalogues.
$45 om mail trading partners
$297 on a 1800mm steel stationery cabinet
$540 on a whopping big sturdy bookcase, which I have to install after bricking up some windows.
Also >$130 on donations, stamp club dues etc.


I have well over $1,500 building in my stamp kitty, should the Aussie dollar get substantially better.

You sound like your having fun, that's what its all about.

Be wary of the ills of Philately...sitting down is the new smoking
Best of health to you.
