Stamp hobby blossoms in home-based business

Peter and Michael Gutter were featured in a article that appeared recently in the Reno, NV, Gazette-Journal.

The couple has been in business as Gutter Pairs Etc. for more than 20 years as stamp dealers.

The husband-and-wife team does business in the Reno-Sparks area, with people who have inherited stamp collections from relatives, or schools or charities that have received a donation of stamps.

According to the article by Marian Bond, "When the Gutters started their business, the idea was to specialize in stamps from countries they were particularly interested in. Michael (she goes by Mike) Gutter collected Russian stamps, and stamps from countries that developed after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Peter collected stamps from China and the Far East."

Shown above is Peter as he sorts through a collection of stamps to sell at an upcoming show in Portland, Ore.
