Facebook page. "Extremely helpful in
dealing with bits and pieces of my father's "collections" of 30-40
years ago. Honest advice and the items of value put into auction

have to deal with a house clearance and know nothing about stamps

Review. "Sir, it was my pleasure to visit
your shop this past Thursday afternoon as an interlude to a business
trip in Edinburgh. Although my purchase (some old and modern
postcards) was small, I was treated in a most friendly and courteous
manner by your staff. The brief visit to your shop was
actually the highlight of my business trip.
MM (USA ?) "Glad to see The best stamp shop in
Edinburgh is still running - must be about 6 years since I've been
in, but I enjoyed every hour of it!"
IB (on the web) "... we really do appreciate your efforts,
especially in view of all the other lots that you had to deal with
at that no doubt very busy time. ..... I came up in what I like to
call the old school where standards are maintained and courtesy and
service matter; having spent a lifetime in retail management myself;
and as this was the first time that I have dealt with your firm it
was a pleasant surprise to receive such service, courtesy, and
attention. ..... By the way the two lots we bought were excellent
value and exactly as described."
