My First ebay Experience


As I was contemplating my Year of Stamps project, I discovered that Ebay has lots stamps for sale. So, I went and bought some.  This was my first purchase, but I doubt it will be my last.

The thing is, after I made the purchase, I was told that the package would arrive by June 6th. Unfortunately, it did not arrive until June 21st.  Having dealt mostly with Amazon, I expected it before the date, not two weeks after.  I got nervous after the first week and emailed the seller.  I even reached out to the stamp forum that I am on seeking their advice.  Virtually everyone said to wait as Canada customs seemed to like holding these things up a little.  The stamps were coming from Belgium, I should explain.


My purchases have arrived and I am very happy. I bought a bunch of Canadian Olympic stamps and crossed six countries (Lichtenstein, West Germany, Austria, Iceland, Spain, and Israel) off my list.
