Shop re-opens, new stock coming soon

After our visit to the Scottish borders, our shop is now open again, but there are no new stamps - yet.

By the end of the week we will have Poppies from the Post Office SSK machines, and also from machine M011 MOD Abbey Wood.  These come in two formats, with and without the Ministry of Defence de&s logo.  Those without are produced if the purchaser chooses the 'sending to Northern Ireland' option on the menu.  We will have collectors strips of 6 or 1st class singles.
Machin head stamps will also be available without the MOD logo using the same option.

Also available will be the Winter Greenery re-issue with 2017 code, issued today.  These will also be available in collectors sets of 16 or sets of 4 (2 x 2nd class and 2 x 1st class, one of each design).

Some of these will be reserved for overseas customers, but all could all customers please confirm their requirements as soon as possible.

Incidentally, I don't think I have ever seen quite so many pink-footed geese even in Norfolk!  As with most images, click on it to see it in larger format.



  1. That's a lot of goose!

    Did you have trouble finding the Scottish country definitives up there?

    1. St Abbs had 1st & 2nd Scotland (may have had others), but Coldingham had Star Wars 1st and Machin 2nd, seemed to be surprised about Scottish defins. Most of the POs in the area were outreach or mobile, so not much opportunity. Eyemouth I didn't go into.

  2. You've got good eyes Ian to see the colour of their feet from there!
