I live in Canada but occasionally I have need of mint USA stamps for SASE or return mail purposes. Since USPS won't ship stamps to Canada, I was hoping to buy a small lot of older stamps to use. Looking through ebay, many sellers won't ship to Canada or charge such outrageous shipping ($20?) that it negates the value of buying these at a discount. While I am likely dealing with the reality of buying at face value I still can't find a source online that doesn't charge crazy shipping.
Any ideas on where I might find a reseller? While I do use these, I also don't need hundreds of dollars in postage so my needs or relatively small.
Collecting Germany, Scandinavia, Austria, Ireland as well as casually accumulating mint Japan, finishing my Canadian collection and my topicals of owls and books on stamps.
Kate, I'd be willing to exchange gummed US postage for a good mix of recent (since 2000) mint Canada (single, plate blocks, booklets... are all fine) with you at the rounded off current exchange rate of 3:4 US:Canadian (adjustable in case of any sudden big fluctuation). Basically, you'd be paying for the US postage using Canadian stamps. I do a lot of mailing, so I've got various US denominations available if you have any particular preference. I can even pack them in denomination combinations to meet specific rates if you need. Stamps for 1940s to pre-forever stamps are available.
If somebody wants to offer her a better exchange/deal, it's not a problem with me. I have to use up the postage for mailing anyway, so I can't offer her better. But I want her to get the best possible exchange on Stamp Bears, so if anyone can offer better, feel free to do so... Happy Stamp Bears is all that matters...
