I did it...

A couple of months ago, I purged my stamps...


I got rid of all but what would fit in the chest of drawers. I sent them to Viva Las Vegas stamps and they are being sold on consignment.

wow how long did it take you? Was it hard to do? How much will you make per stamp do you think?

I bet the cleansing feels good in the end.

How long did it take and was it hard to do? I agonized over it for weeks. I went thru the collection at least twice-- this time. I purged a lot (or so I thought) last summer. I was determined this time to make it fit into the drawers only. I ended up with the drawers filled and two boxes under. It was difficult to decide at first, but necessary. There were a few stamps that I stamped off a few images first, just in case.
How much will I make per stamp? Per stamp I think it's $1. They (Viva Las Vegas Stamps) do all the work of cataloging them and paying for the shipping to them and all I do is collect a check each month for what sells-- which so far is around $400.
I did the cleansing for a couple of reasons, one of them is because I moved out and I knew I wouldn't have space in a small apartment.
