So why do I mention it now, well I have been getting the usual amount of Christmas cards this year and for the first time in a while I thought that they were a decent design, simple but nice and colourful, and thats what attracted me in the first place, these little colourful works of art were great.
So, I decided to have a look at my albums and update them, it was about 2010 when I last spent some time and money on my collection, but I was thinking over the last couple of weeks that maybe `i should invest some more time and money in my stamps, did you know that the annual return on stamps as an investment is around 10%, not bad for a few bits of paper.
I have been busy buying some more valuable stamps as a insurance policy if you like for my son, when I kick the bucket, he can sell the collection to pay for my final goodbye. Yes my stamp collection is valued at about £15000 for insurance purposes. So, let me know if you collect stuff like stamps and coins, I look forward to your comments.
Happy New Year to you all.
