It's Tillie the Terror Dachshund and Twiggy the ever Shirking Dachshund (Lily's Lotto's little helpers) We are now branching out and have gone into the busness of Philately (that to you and me is Stamp Collecting!). We are also collection old car tax discs and postcards and will be doing more with these at a later date so do please send us any you have!
When the stamps arrive (some are in carrier bags, others in envelopes, packets etc) we sniff out the tax discs and postcards first and then sell them on Ebay. All used stamps are accepted including foreign stamps. All money made from the stamps goes straight to Many Tears.
When you send the stamps to us could you please put a Large Letter stamp on it (these are 88p for a second class one) so it goes as a Large Letter. This is because when you put stamps in a CARD SIZE envelope it lays flat but they end up all falling down to one end of the envelope and the post office is making us pay the extra AND a penalty! What that means less treats brought for us so we hope you don't mind us putting this on here, as you have all done a great job in sending us lots of stamps which Many Tears really do appreciate. The address to send any stamps, tax discs or postcards to is below but you can also take or send them to Many Tears.
At the moment we only have a few packets but need lots more so please keep on sending them to us.

Here are some tips for trimming your stamps:
Stamps should be trimmed leaving 13mm (½ an inch) around the stamp. It does not have to be neat because they are sold by weight if there to too much paper around then they are getting more paper than stamp. If they are cut to close and it goes into the perforation around the edge they are not worth anything.
