German stamps and postal history

We deal in the stamps and postal history of Germany. This site provides both information on German philately, and current offers of material.

I first began dealing in stamps 40+ years ago, to augment my own collection. The years rolled on.... now we are a family-run stamp mail-order business based in York, England.

Our internet business is growing fast.

You receive my personal attention and experience, whether on-line or by postal mail.

Enjoy exploring the site........... John Barefoot.
