Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Saturday, April 21, 2018

One of my favourite places for stamp auctions has been AWOL for months and I was getting very worried. John H. Talman stamps, in Toronto, runs numerous auctions throughout the year and I've been able to scoop some great lots in the past. No idea where they've been, there wasn't a sign of activity for ... well .. months and months. I just checked their website and a new auction is notice is up. 

They've also posted a note promising more auctions: "After this sale we hope to hold sales more frequently. We have many buyers eager to buy and we hope to provide the material they need. We do appreciate your participation in our sales and look forward to your bids for this sale. John H. Talman"

I'll cruise through the catalogue and see if I can find a sweet offering to post for you.

Sunday September 3, 2017 - Public Auction - 2:30pm at THE EAGLES' CLUB 17 ELM STREET, DOWNTOWN TORONTO (Two blocks north of Dundas Street west off Yonge Street). You can also use their bid form if you can't attend.

Catpaw with a pint & a typical bad haircutTime for a new look - the venerable cat on a postage stamp is now retired. As much as I loved him, it was time for a face lift - bad haircut & all.
