The Stamps Just Keep On Sticking

New Zealand's Tarnaki Daily News, "Don't try telling New Plymouth philatelist Chas Lilley that postage stamps are a thing of the past. Despite this being the age of Facebook, Twitter and email, The Stamp Shop owner says his collectors business is going just fine, thanks".

Mr Lilley, who trades internationally, said he has made more than 15,000 sales on Trade Me after switching from Ebay on which he had already made some 30,000 sales, according to the piece by Jessie Waite.

Jesse writes, "Originally from London, Mr Lilley has been collecting stamps for 66 years and has several million in his personal collection," and quotes Chas as saying, "Instead of spending my money on sweets, I would buy a stamp and that's how I got going, even through the war I collected stamps."
