Bargain hunting

Up in Shrubbery today visiting the folks, all of whom have got stuff to do. Never mind - gives us a chance to pop into the town and visit my favourite charity shop: Save the Children on Wyle Cop. Why do I like going there? Cheap packets of stamps!

I bought 5 bags of odds and sods at 30p each and got some very interesting little gems out of them, including some Transvaal, which I've started collecting, some from Tanganyika and a short run from Zanzibar. Plus a French stamp featuring the Statue of Liberty, which'll go in my Lady Liberty thematic collection.
