Of course with the Coronavirus, or Covid-19, they had to cancel the stamp and coin show. It just that twice a year I look forward to going. The atmosphere is great and I usually make some good progress on my 1970’s project. I also get tempted by lots of other shiny things that are not at all connected to my project and cause me to spend money that I shouldn’t–but that probably happens to all of us.
Instead, I am spending lots of time online looking at stamps to buy and wondering if the shipping cost is making it too expensive? Then I try to group a bunch of stuff together…and then I end up spending too much money, or abandoning the idea till another day.
I am keeping busy today by updating my stamp have and don’t have list for the 1970’s project. I would have done it just before the show…but there was no show. I wish there were a program that could make a better checklist for me. Maybe if I forked out the money for EZstamp. If that price wasn’t in US dollars I probably would have done in months ago.
Happy collecting everyone. I am sure more people are finding time to devote to their stamps now that we are locked inside. I know I am.
Most Recent Purchase: about twenty stamps from Iran for the 1970’s project. They might take a while to arrive, but I’ve got patience.
