My local stamp club here in Port St. Lucie holds a monthly auction. I haven't been able to physically attend for a few months because of health reasons and now the virus has ALL meetings and shows cancelled for the foreseeable future. But, I was able to submit some auction lots before the shutdown, which hubby delivered for me.
I sold a box of used supplies - a mishmash of envelopes, stock pages and so on, in the last auction - starting bid $1. I don't like clutter, so I'm just happy to get them out of the way - the price isn't that important to me.
Imagine my surprise when the fella that won the lot actually sent me MORE money. I couldn't believe it! He said that the box of supplies were very helpful to him and worth much more than he paid, so he sent me extra $$$ in the mail. That's the type of folks we have here in our club - very generous and giving people. I'm very lucky to know them.
Aren't stamp collectors the best?
