As from last Nov we lost selling singles and set on our anchor store eBay.

Total change to bulk lots only with a feature. The change in reward is huge already.

In 6 years we put 3 people through collage + heaps extra.

Have a huge collection that is now beginning to be broken down.

July saw me sort my 1,000,000 stamp on paper for this year. Our business all comes from wild harvest kiloware.

So ends one era and another one opens.

A very recent observation from myself when it comes to the new Australia $1 issue kiloware.

Out of 22kg lot that arrived this week there was 1.5kg of the new $1 issues in it.Plus 15kg x 70c issues.Plus 4kg of 60c & 70c issues + 1.5kg of world stamps.

The $1 issued commemoratives are now being sold by the PO for 12 month+ not the normal 3 month we are use too. With hugely less amount of $1 issues compared with the 45c , 50, 55c, 60c & 70c era releases.

The $1 stamps are really getting very hard to source but they are going to go stale because the kiloware is going to have very little variety in it over long periods of collection time.

The 70c kiloware is going to be the hardest of the kilowares to get your hands on when it comes to Australia kiloware.

The other issue that is harder to get is the 55c era.

This organisation that I just got this kiloware from use to offer 150kg per month in 2005.Now I get all of it 20kg per 3 months. They are a huge organisation that covers most of Australia and I am the only buyer of this contacts kiloware now.

Just had to post this find from today in some recent kiloware.

It fits nicely on this thread.

Will be interesting to see how much kiloware I will end up with over the next 12 months.

This year have sorted by myself over 350kg of kiloware on paper. So that is approx 1,750,000 stamps on paper for the year.

I searched high and low for kiloware contacts this year and found one source in particular that I get approx 22kgs of quality kiloware per 4 to 6 weeks.

Over the last 2 days I have sorted 12kg and have worn a large patch of skin on each arm were they rests on my legs as I am sorting. On the right hand side the skin has worn to the point that it was bleeding.

Best part of sorting that 12kg is that I have ended up with 6kg of the new 1 dollar issues.But will have wait till the selling season starts again.

At the beginning of the year things did not look very good but what a finish too this year. Here's hoping for a great next year.

You definitely work at it I give you credit. I hope 2017 goes well for you better than last year. I haven't soaked stamps since 2015 so I have many to catch up on if I get the time between everything else. Have a Great New Year!

Just cleaned out my stamp/coin cabinet this weekend, I have been just setting new arrivals on the shelf, so I put upstairs for later sorting two plastic shoes boxes full of glassiness so hopefully I can get to them this winter yet.

Sorry I missed you qaman.

Thank you for the kind words.

Sorting kiloware is the best thing in stamping.

Sounds like you are very much involved in trying to organise things into an order.

Putting things in order is a great part of the fun of kiloware.

Always Happy Stamping. kg5

All my kiloware is selling fast only 70c left. Sorting some 50c 55c and 60c kiloware at present but out of 10kgs only 1.5kg (if I am blessed) of commemorative stamps only will make it into our kiloware mixes.

At present have on eBay, Australia 70c kiloware on paper commemoratives only in 250g neat & 500g packed lots.These are very popular for outside Australia buyers not just Australia buyers.
There is only 2.5kg left. Hoping for more kiloware to sort from a charity soon, hopefully.Plus an auction house goes off this week but a person keeps buying kiloware for as much as $300 per kg. Crazy Hey!

Good kiloware on paper is getting harder and harder to find.

Today kiloware that went outside Australia was to Portugal, Netherlands and New Zealand. Plus a 3.5kg lot sold to the Netherlands.

Kiloware has become very popular since I have taken the definitives out of the mixes. It has basically halved the mailing cost for buyers.

Normally the mixes are 50% comm's & 50% defin's.

Always Happy Stamping.
