Those are nice colourful boxes!I keep my 'gulden' (florin) stamps in an envelope. I keep my euro stamps in an other envelope. And I keep some florin and euro stamps in a flat white/transparant box... Very indistinct and dull... (but it works, so far :-)While I have some colourful boxes at home... Maybe I should take your colourful example!?!
It's a way to reuse some beautiful boxes... :-)
But I guess you need BIG boxes because you own thousands of stamps!
p.s. regarding languages: the Masticha / Mastic box is interesting! Did I see it well: are there both Greek and Arab (besides Latin) letters on it?
Yes, you saw it! It's for that I love this little box. It came from Greece.
What lovely little boxes.Mine, boringly, are kept in a bog box with dividers showing the subject of the stamp. I try to collect each new one as it comes out and I have a large collection of old commemoratives as well. So if someone likes sheep they get a sheep stamp, etc.Then there are all the combinations of pennies that are needed make up the usual first class stamps to the arte for a foreign postcard.
I don't need a lot of room: in the post offices and in the tobacconists they sell the same stamp again and again... Sometimes they have some different stamps, but it's rare.
these are wonderful tins. I also use tins, but I have a collection of cigarette tins that I use for the stamps. I gather up old stamps and have to use a calculator to make them add up to the required $1.85 for overseas.
I used to have a nice cigarette tin too, but it rusted :(
Mine are kept in a large drawer ...oh wooow, I'm so in love with the overly cute Barcelona box !!!
Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
