I have stamps to sell or trade all the time and I know that flummouxes many people. "How can you stand to part with even one stamp?" I am asked all the time. Well, I have an awful lot of stamps, you see. When I mention that I'm often told, "Well, I do too, but I don't dare get rid of any of them." I do dare and I have no problem downsizing the ones that don't work for me. Sometimes my taste change, or a get a similar stamp I like better, or sometimes I bought them on a whim in the first place, or sometimes I'm just tired of them, etc. And here is how it often goes down:
I have these two reindeer stamps. They were both bought on a whim. One came from Michael's Craft store and I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice stamp there that appealed to me. The other one came from an internet store that has a variety of stamps and I was just browsing around.
