  1. Hello Michele.
    Just a word to say many thanks for order 5156809. Nothing complimentary to say about the latest Turkish issue. Thought the pair of stamps were drab to be honest, what are your thoughts on them?
    Another lightning delivery though (Saturday am !) Kind Regards. John
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi John,
    Yes, I get what you're saying - they're not very exciting or colourful are they this time?
    I think the details behind them was more interesting than the design on this occasion and, looking more closely at the 1.00 TL stamp (Hakan Aşık) it looks like his "sweet trolley has been appointed in front of the philatelic offices in the north of Cyprus.

    That's the last issue of the year from the Turkish Cypriot postal department.
    The final issue of 2017 for Republic of Cyprus stamps is due towards the end of this month and we anticipate having them on the website early December. It's the Cyprus Christmas 2017 stamp issue.

    That wraps up 2017 - where did the year go so fast!

    Kind regards
    Michele and Clem

  2. Dear Michele,

    Thanks for the delivery of the stamps I ordered, everything was perfectly all right.

    Please let me know when the Cyprus year set 2017 will be available.

    Kind regards,

    Jan
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Hello Jan
    Thank you for your feedback!
    The final issue for the year is due towards the end of November so we should have Year Sets listed on the website during the early part of December.
    Kind regards

  3. Hello Michele. Just to say very many thanks indeed for order number 5008286. I wish the Royal Mail was as quick off the mark as this sending. Subject matter on this issue was good and I liked the FDC design.
    Kind regards to you both, keep up the good work.
    John.
    --------------------------------------
    That's great news John - thank you for your feedback.
    We're pleased to hear they arrived quickly.
    Kind regards

  4. Good afternoon Michele. Just to say very many thanks for 4969243. I quite like the design. You should see how the vandals at Royal Mail have cancelled the stamps on the envelope ! Biro lines on every stamp. I have never quite understood this vandalism which has been common practice for so many years. I wonder what goes through the mind of the culprit at the time? There are times when I think the Royal Mail deliberately treat the collector with the utmost contempt. Kind Regards.
    John.
    ----------------------------------------
    Hi John,
    Sorry, I replied to this previously but I mustn't have made it "live" - my apologies for that.....
    Well we're pleased to hear you received your order but saddened to hear the news of the cancellation system used by the Royal Mail posties :-(
    Clem puts those old UK stamps on envelopes staying local whenever possible. It's a great way of using up mint stamps that have very little or no face value on the open market and an added bonus for our stamp collectors.
    Please complain to them - VERY LOUDLY!
    Kind regards
    Michele

  6. Hello Michele and to say a very big thank you for order 4882567. Got to admit though
    I think the designs are a little drab, what are your thoughts on this issue?
    Kind Regards to you both.
    John
    ----------------------------------------------
    Ah, the north Cyprus (EUROPA Castles) - yes, I thought they were quite grey and not very well defined. I assumed at first it was perhaps not a good print on the information leaflet but no, the stamps didn't look much better either.
    Not one of my favourites either!

  7. Hello Michele and a very big thank you for order 4845196, more miniature works
    of art for John's collection, trust you are both well, keep up the excellent service
    to collectors of "God's Island"
    Kind Regards,
    John
    -------------------------------------
    Hi John,
    Well what can I say, how quickly did that order arrive!
    I hope you enjoy the new issues.
    We have to admit, we're missing the Cyprus weather but other than that, we're getting life on track now and getting on with finding our way round our new surroundings. Hard to believe that 12 months have already been and gone!
    Hope you are doing okay too....
    Kind regards

  8. Good afternoon Michele. Just to say thank you for Ord No. 4796402 and very nice too.
    Trust both you and Clem are well up there in the frozen North !!!!!!!
    Kind Regards,
    John
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Hiya John,
    They're quite nice stamps - we both like them.
    We're both well but the wind here is decidedly chilly today and is biting hard - but at least we haven't had any of that snow they kept promising. We could see it on top of the fells above the Lake District when we looked across Morecambe Bay this afternoon though!
    Hope you're doing okay too!
    Kind regards

  9. Hello Michele. Just to say many cheers indeed for order 4763658, more lovely additions
    to my collection. New issues from Greece and a further few sets of King George V1 arrived at the same time, it will give me something to do at the weekend. Trust both you Clem are well.
    Kind Regards,
    John
    --------------------------------------------
    Hi John,
    It sounds like you are going to be kept busy then!
    Sorry, we slipped another stamp issue in yesterday (it's in the NEW Stamp Issue category) from north Cyprus (date of issue 23 March 2017) called "Cittaslow Member Towns in Northern Cyprus" a set of 3 stamps and Official FDC. You probably haven't seen it yet....
    Hope you are okay?
    We've got visitors over the weekend so looking forward to a bit of family time.

    Flippin' heck John - that was quick!
    We only posted your order yesterday morning as we were on our way out for the day to meet up with friends from Manchester.

  12. Thank you Michele for the lovely Maltese stamps you sent us. My son has just started collecting stamps and he is over the moon with them. Also we love the stamps on the envelope too !
    Best wishes Mary-Ann
    -----------------------------
    Thanks for the lovely personal email too, Mary-Ann – it was really nice to receive it. Not something that happens a lot.
    Great to hear your son has become a stamp collector! We need to keep it going around the world :-)

    I hope you have a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
    All the very best from Michele & Clem

  15. Hello Michele. Just to say a very big thank you for order No. 4199890. Very nice too they are and a super addition to my collection. I will take this opportunity of wishing both you, Clem and family, all the very best for a lovely Christmas and a great New Year. John

    -----------------------------
    Hi John,
    We're super pleased you got your order through in time for Christmas. That's great news and glad you like them too!
    We're having a quiet Christmas this year, just us and Mum. It will be a little different than our last 12 years in Cyprus and touch and go whether we will see any sunshine during the day....
    Have a lovely day yourself and very best wishes from us both for the coming New Year celebrations.
    Let's all have a good one!
    Kind regards
    Michele & Clem

  16. Hello Michele. Just to say many thanks for the "Europe" and "Xmas" issues. They will make a nice addition to my collection. Regards to both you and Clem.

    --------------------------
    You got them quick!
    That's great news.... the Christmas one's aren't too bad we thought. The Cyprus Chairmanship of the Council of Europe came as a bit of a surprise though, we only found out a very short time before the release date as we received no notification of it until we got the pre-release leaflet.
    Good old Cyprus, eh?
    Thanks again for the update....
    Kind regards

  17. Hello Michele. Just to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of both your father and the old dog. Always a sad time in life. My dog is 14years old in April and all he wants to do is eat and sleep most of the time. I had my last dog put to sleep and can still remember my dear wife and I, standing outside of the vets, collapsed in each other's arms. I am not looking forward to my present dog passing away. This time, I shall be on my own. No more dogs for me! Christmas? the family often refer to me as Scrooge!! Far too commercial for my liking!! Humbug Ha! Ha! Glad when it is all over.

    ------------------------
    Thank you John,
    It was a traumatic time for us with everything coming together.... My dad went very suddenly downhill in the last month and never really recovered after his spell in hospital.
    With our dog, Indie - we knew we were on borrowed time and it was touch and go whether he made it to UK from Cyprus with us or even if he would survive the flight, but we had him for another 6 months with us which really was a bonus. We have his ashes and we will scatter them along the pathway on the place which was his favourite place to walk. He would insist on going the same way every time!
    We're now finally seeing a bit of light at the end of the tunnel with the paperwork that seems to be a necessity following a person's death.... still some bits to sort out but we're almost done. Mum will be happier once it's all finished and is glad we're here with her.

  18. Hello Michele. Just to say thank you for the new issue of Cyprus Benefactors, more nice additions to my collection. Trust that both you and Clem are well dear lady.
    Kind Regards,
    John
    ----------------------------
    Hi John,
    Thank you for your update. I'm pleased to hear you received your order safe and sound. However, they're not the most attractive of stamps and we feel perhaps a trifle boring don't you think?
    Sadly, it's not been a good week for us... As you know, we returned to UK in April this year after 12 years in Cyprus due to family illness and have to report we lost my Dad at the weekend to Parkinson's disease which he's suffered with since early 2013.
    As we were still reeling from this, me and Clem had to make the decision to have our old dog of 14 years put to sleep on Tuesday morning. So we lost our two closest old men in the space of three days.
    The funeral for my dad will take place next week.
    Mum is just about coping but we're all a bit up and down from one day to the next. We just need to get past next week and of course, Christmas will be particularly difficult for my Mum this year...
    We will get through it somehow and we are fully aware there will be some dark days ahead of us but at least we're all here together.
    Kind regards
    Michele

    --------------------
    Hi Jerry
    Thank you for your update and your comments, although I think we were more likely worried about bad weather rather than losing the plane when we packed your order ;-)
    Hope to see you again soon!
    Thanks again for taking the time to provide your feedback.

    -------------------------------
    Hi John,
    Pleased to hear you received the latest Cyprus stamp issues and that you like them too!
    As for George VI stamps, I hope you're not planning on sticking them on any envelopes for postage because I don't think they will get very far.... :-)

  27. Good morning Michele. Just to say many thanks for order No.3260376. I am still looking for several FDC's from TRNC that are proving to be somewhat elusive. I do browse the website very often in the hope that they will eventually be in stock,
    Kind Regards,
    John

    ---------------------------------------
    Hi John
    Glad to hear you have your order!

    We've just added TRNC latest 2016 issues (Europa and RIO2016) stamps into the NEW Stamp Issue category as well as their usual place in the north Cyprus stamps section.

    Are these the one's you're looking for - or something else from the north?

    We have everything listed at the moment which we have in stock but we're always on the lookout for previous issues from all years.....

    Kind regards
    Michele

  28. Hi Michele. Order No. 3258498 arrived today. Very nice too and I thank you so much for this order. Being a EUROPA thematic collector, I rather like the theme of going green this year.
    Kind Regards,
    John W
    -------------------------------------------
    That's great stuff John and pleased to hear you're happy with the theme - personally, they were a bit too "green" for me but I did like thed design for "Principles and Values Of The European Union" issue :-)
    Kind regards

  29. Whoops! Let's try again. Good morning Michele. Just a quick one. Are the two stamp issues of 9 May 2016 available yet? Kind Regards, John W

    John W

    ----------------------------
    Hi John
    Thanks for the update - I checked it today on the Post Office website as it was sent with Proof of Postage which should be updated on their websiite but, it hasn't!!! Now, why am I not surprised at that? UK Royal Mail website is notorious for not being kept up to date even when a signature is required by the recipient.
    Anyway, it will keep you busy for a while longer ;-)

  41. Hello Michele and a very big Ta for order No. 2505503. Yes, I seem to have amassed quite a lot
    of recent acquisitions recently. Ready with my bottle of single malt, TV is working OK, so Yo! Ho! Ho! to all and everyone.
    John
    -------------------------
    Hi John
    Good to hear you got that one - and quickly too. We were rather pleased to see the speed of that order as Cyprus Post have had a few slow moments of late but they appear to have pulled all the stops out just now!
    The FDC with the minisheet has been dispatched to you today as discussed by email. I hope you get it just as quickly...
    All the best to you if we don't speak again this side of Christmas and New Year.
    Kind regards

Stamps, a bottle of single malt, my wee dog and the TV, sublime rules OK !!!! What more could a man wish for? Whilst I'm here, a very merry Christmas to both you, Clem and all my fellow Cyprus fans !!!! John West
    ________________
    Wow, John - that seems to have reached you very quickly!
    I know Cyprus Post said they were going to ensure all post reached its' destination in time for Christmas but they've really pulled out all the stops on this Registered item.
    Enjoy! Clem says your plans sound wonderful :-)
    All the very best wishes to you for the coming festivities.

    Hi Jan
    Thanks for the update, it's great to hear you received them as we were a little worried with regards to how long they would take to reach you due to KLM no longer flying mail out of Cyprus!

  44. Good morning Michele. Yes, thank you dear lady for the Tracking info. It is so very useful and I can now see updates on mail arrival HWDC, great! Regards to both you and Clem, keep up the good work. I don't want to sound too patronising but where would us Cyprus collectors be without Cyprus Stamps?
    John West
    ------------------------------------
    That's good then, as long as you received the emails I will add you each time we send registered packages. HWDC are really quite hopeless at updating their site :-(

    Hi John,
    That's great news - as my tracker hasn't updated me yet!
    Surely, you can't have many more gaps left?
    :-)
    Kind regards from us both and hope you are in good health. Sorry, we missed your Birthday. It sounds like you had a good day...

    ______________________________
    Hiya John
    We're working on them at the moment.... I have the info ready but we're just getting the "sample" images ready for display and then will add all the details, new stamp category image and the 3 Christmas stamps into the Shop. Most likely it will be tomorrow (Tuesday) evening before we're fully up and running.
    Cheer, Michele

  50. Thank you Michele for order #2327670 that arrived this morning. Yet another
    little gem to add to my collection. Let's give thanks to "Cyprus Stamps"
    Kind Regards,
    John
    -------------------
    Hi John
    Very pleased to hear you received this one... we're very much looking forward to your feedback on the next order/s you receive :-)
    We're just back from a visit up the mountain to Koilani village where we went for a spot of wine tasting at Ayia Mavri winery followed by lunch in Platres.
    It's a public holiday today for Oxi Day (or "No" day) celebrations. The day the Greeks told Musselini to "do one"...

    to describe this item "BEAUTIFUL" Kind regards to you both,
    John
    _____________________
    Hi John
    I'm very pleased to hear you're happy with that particular cover and that it was worth the extra day or two waiting. More than likely the wait was caused by the recent postal changes here in Cyprus in that Registered Mail is collected now on the next business day after it was left with the post office. If it coincides with the coming of the weekend then it depends if it gets uploaded on Saturday at Larnaca or the following Monday.
    I know as a rule your orders arrive pretty swiftly.
    Enjoy looking at that one!
    Kind regards

  56. Hello Michele. Very many thanks indeed for order no. #2237497. Very nice too and a lovely addition to my collection. Must take stock one of these fine days and see what else I require. Regards to both you and Clem over there on God's Island !!! John
    ______________________________
    Hi John,
    Glad to hear your order arrived safely. The new stamps come out tomorrow so will soon be on their way too.
    As for God's island, we've been under a terrific dust storm from Syria for most of the week (Tuesday until Friday) with planes being diverted from Larnaca to Paphos. Was all a bit of a nightmare - but, the breeze has got up today and it looks like it's all finally shifted.
    All good stuff, eh?

    John
    --------------------------
    Hi John
    I tested the Guestbook page myself to see what was happening. At first it displayed a captcha code which seemed too long, but I tried it anyway and it failed. There were 2 lots of code by the looks of it because when it refreshed for me to try again - there were only half the amount of letters to type the 2nd time.
    So, I've copied your message in for you :-) but I will keep an eye on it and notify the hosting company if it continues.
    Thanks again for your update. It's always good to hear from you!
    My day off work today and we're having a heatwave. Predicted to reach 40C degrees this weekend in sunny Cyprus. The KEO is on ice...
    Regards,

  59. Hello Michele. Trust you are both well. Many thanks for order 2119847. More "goodies" for my collection. Kind Regards, John
    --------------------------
    Hi John,
    I think you received that order pretty quickly! Glad you're happy with them... the next issues are due on 6 July: The Beauty of Akamas and the Joint Issue "Euromed" stamp entitled "Boats of the Mediteranean.
    Details will be on site soon when I get my finger out and type up all the blurb :-)

  61. Thank you for that dear lady. An honest answer regarding the Europa stamps 2015? Not bad, but take a look at the Gibraltar issue, beautiful I would suggest. Kind Regards,John

    -------------------------------
    I just took a look..... yes, they are very nice and it's good to see they do depict Old Toys (some of the other issues are not quite so clear in their message, we feel). But we both prefer the Cyprus issue for the fact they show the old toys in situ, so to speak.
    Michele & Clem

  62. Whoops! Thank you Michele for the Europa new issue. However, I should have ordered two mint sets, one for my general collection plus one for my Europa collection. I have just ordered a further mint set. Sorry for the inconvenience dear lady. Kind regards to you both. John
    -------------------
    Hiya John,
    I did wonder what the 2nd order was for and wondered if you'd had one of the senior moments at first. Thank you for the explanation!
    What do you think of the stamps? We quite like them, especially with the brighter colours against the sepia effect...
    Kind regards, Michele

  63. Hello Michele. Thank you for order No. 2001719, more great Cyprus stamps to add to my collection. Like the EOKA sheet, really striking design. Nice examples in the "Sweets" too, I must confess for having a weakness for these!!!! Naughty but nice eh? Regards to both you and Clem
    John

    -------------------
    LOL John,
    That gave both of us a giggle.... have you been watching those "Carry On" films over the Easter weekend ;-)
    Glad you enjoyed the stamps though!

    Hi Keith
    I'm pleased to hear your order arrived safely. We try to use stamps as often as we can, even when sending by Registered Mail rather than the printed barcode. All good for our collectors.
    We look forward to your next order but in the meantime, all the very best wishes for Christmas and the coming new year.
    Kind regards

  69. Hello Michele. Many thanks for the new issues. Whilst the Christmas stamps are beautiful, not too sure about the Children's booklet though. A bit gaudy which proved to be a bit of a maize to ID the stamps against the whole design methinks. Whilst I here, all the best for Chrimbo and the New Year.
    John
    ------------------------------------
    Hi John
    Yes, that booklet is definitely a bit on the bright side isn't it? We've found the secret is to just look out for the prices in order to spot the stamps!
    We're not really ready for Christmas here yet, we always find it hard to think about it if the sun is shining.... 10+ years down the line in Cyprus and Christmas always hits us at the last minute.
    Have a great one, whatever you may be doing and be sure we will say "Yiamas" to your health!
    Best regards

    Sending you some fresh wind from Sweden,

    We really do need that fresh wind, it's extremely hot and humid today - over 80% humidity was forecast for Cyprus.

    Very nice too and a welcome addition to my collection. Today in dear old Wellingborough, we could be at the Eastern end of the Med. It is hot and sunny, all I need now is a couple of cold Keo Beers!!!! Regards to both you and Clem.

  76. Thank you for that Michele. The stamps arrived today Wed 2/7. Excellent, when you stop to consider that they were issued on 30/6, it can't get better than that. Regarding the stamps, I thought "knockout" might be an apt description from my point of view but I settled on "beautiful" Regards to both you and Clem.
    John

    ------------------------------------
    Hiya John,
    That's not bad going at all is it? Even more so considering it was all a bit of a rush job in getting them listed in time!
    I think the Intellectual Pioneers are pretty good looking too although was a bit disappointed with the cancel mark.
    Next issue is 9 July and will be working on them over the next few days.
    On 1 August 2014 postal rates will increase in Cyprus and there will be a very rare overprint issue to coincide with it.
    There will be no "official" FDCs for the overprint but we're hoping to be able to make some of our own to celebrate this occasion.
    Busy few weeks for us methinks!
    All the very best to you.
    Regards, Michele

    Posted on

  77. Hello Michele. I rather like the look of the new stamp issue, Intellectual Pioneers, very nice. Any chance of technical details, design etc.
    -----------------------------
    Hi John,
    Yes, the do look rather nice - although the cancel mark doesn't appear to be very inspirational....

    The details you require can be found in the bottom part of the page in the NEW Stamp Issue category (after the stamp listings) but I've copied it here below for you too - after my sign off.
    As this was a bit of a rush job, I didn't add all the supplied text from the official leaflet so I've summarised and added some of my own words.
    Regards, Michele

    today I received the stamps. Thanks for packing them so nicely again. You have some work to do for such relatively small amounts of money, but I am grateful because in this way I also get some cancelled stamps from Cyprus, not cancelled on demand.
    All the best,

  81. Hi Michele. Just to say very many thanks for 1594520 that landed this afternoon. Yes indeed, being a "EUROPA" thematic fan, I agree, there have been some very nice designs this year. Regards to both you and Clem.

  82. Hello Michele. Many thanks for 1571823 that arrived today. I think the stamps designs are very nice but not too keen on the rather miniscule postmark though. Wonder what other club members think?
    Kind Regards to both you and Clem.
    John E West
    ----------------------------
    Yep,
    We both agree! They could have made so much more of the special cancel for the 2014 EUROPA. A little disappointing but as you say the design is quite attractive.
    There have been some very good designs for the EUROPA "National Music Instruments" this year, I've been having a look at a few of the different country issues over the last few weeks.
    Happy sorting!

    ___________________
    Hi John
    Yes, there would have been an official FDC issued but we've not come across one so far. Sadly, the late 90s issues are not so easy to get hold of for some reason.

Competition takes place later this month, I will let you know how I get on. The Red Arrows? Yes I remember them well and seen them on one or two occasions. Us RAF lads on ground occupations often wondered in amazement at the bravery of the pilots. Kind regards to both you and Clem. Got to do some stamp sorting now!!

    Well John, I'm pleased to hear we're keeping you busy with your stamp sorting. The 2014 Cyprus Europa issue is currently winging its' way to you - posted this morning. So you should have it sometime next week but you have a holiday in UK on Monday so you may not get it till Thursday...

    Well, they seem to have reached you pretty sharpish! We only received the orders on 27 April, although we did dispatch them the same day I believe.
    I'm very pleased you are happy with the north (Turkish Cyprus) stamps and hope you spend many happy hours perusing your collection.
    Anyway, what news from your philately competition at the stamp club the other week?
    And, dare I say that we were sitting with a friend on the beach over by St Rafael Marina today watching the Red Arrows practice above Akrotiri peninsula?

  95. Michele,
    just a quick note to let you know my last 2 orders have only taken a week to arrive extremely happy with your service. will have a further order put in with you over this week end.

    roger
    ----------------------------
    Thank you Roger,
    Sadly, it seems orders are now taking a little longer than they used to do... The norm was usually between 3 and 5 days from posting to reach UK.
    I am aware that Registered Mail is no longer collected from the post office on the same day it is received - it's now collected on the next day or next business day, which is delaying it a tad.
    Frustrating, but not a lot we can do about it...
    However, I'm pleased to hear you're happy with the service and I do understand that mail posted from Cyprus often reaches UK recipients faster than mail posted inside the UK - so that must be a good thing!
    Looking forward to your next order, Roger :-) and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
    Kind regards

  99. Hi
    Just wanted to add my comments about the excellent service I have received from your Company. Everything is promptly dispatched and I like the way you keep me informed at every stage of my many orders! Keep up the good work. I can recommend you to all.
    Ken
    ------------------------------------------
    Thank you Ken,
    It's always good to hear from our collectors and I'm very glad you are pleased with our service as I recall we had a couple of hiccups at the beginning...
    At least we managed to sort them out and that you continued to stay with us to become a Cyprus 100 Club member.
    I hope the weather will be kind to you now you have returned from your recent holiday to Cyprus.
    Thanks again for the kind comments!
    Regards, Michele

  100. Thank you so much Michele for the new issue. Love this one because I have a very strong liking for green olives!! Kind Regards to both you and Clem.
    John
    ------------------------------
    Hello John
    I'm pleased to hear you like the first Cyprus stamps issues for 2014. Sadly, I don't share your love of olives whatever colour they are... and when the ones in the gardens by the side of us are ripe, the smell makes me think some animal has curled up and died somewhere. Then I remember! It's "that" time of year again :-(
    My hubby loves his olive oil though, but he cannot eat them either.
    I'm still awaiting the release dates and details for the coming year but will pop them in the calendar as soon as I have them.
    Kind regards
    Michele

  103. Good afternoon Michele and thank you for the latest new issues from the TRNC. I particularly like the two triangle stamps from the Flora and Fauna issue, very nice. What are the chances of locating the Anniversaries issue of 20 November? Meanwhile, all the very best to both you and Clem for the New Year.
    Kind Regards,
    John
    -------------------
    Hi John
    I'm pleased to hear you like the Flora and Fauna triangular stamps.
    As for the 20 November issues, we missed them by 2 days - or should I say, we were there 2 days prior to the issue and although we could see and touch them, we were not allowed to purchase them so we will collect them on our next trip north across the UN peacekeeping line in Nicosia.
    We tend to go a couple of times a year so perhaps in the Spring or early part of the summer.
    Kind regards
    Michele

  104. Michele.
    Just a line to thank you for your outstanding service you have given me over the last few months. I was worried about my order which i thought had gone astray last month but your E Mail put me at ease and it turned out fine.
    Once again thank you for your outstanding and reliable service
    Roger
    ----------------------------------
    Hi Roger,
    Many thanks for your feedback and I'm very pleased to hear you are happy with our service. Yes, sometimes an order takes a little longer for some odd reason but we've only "lost" one so far and believe it or not - that was posted to an address within Cyprus.
    All the very best to you for Christmas and the coming year.

  105. I want to thank you Michele, for being so reliable with every order that I have sent you until now. It is certainly quite some work to pack all the items so well. I am often in Cyprus but often not lucky with the post office. So I am glad To have such a reliable source for the stamps. I am also hoping that you might be able to complete some years again that are lacking now. All the best for the future!
    -------------------------------------
    Dear Wolfgang
    As one of our newest customers those are very nice comments and we're both pleased to hear you are happy with our service. The Cyprus postal service is very reliable and hasn't let us down so far in our years of selling online and since we opened Cyprus Stamps website in 2008.
    We are doing our best to complete the "gaps" but sadly some years are quite difficult to source, particularly the early 2000s.
    I look forward to working with you in the coming new year and to our correspondence. It's a real pleasure...
    Kind regards
    Michele.

  106. Hello Michele. I know it is early days yet but have you any information on stamp issues for next year? I know how slow things work in Cyprus but you never know.
    Kind Regards,
    John
    ----------------------------------
    Hi John
    Yes, it's definitely early days! As a rule we don't generally get the interim list of issues until early in the new year, so hopefully, sometime in January....
    If we don't speak before we both hope you have a lovely Christmas and all the very best wishes for the coming year to you.
    Regards, Michele

  107. Thanks Michelle for yet another superb distribution of my beloved Cyprus stamps. The Spanos booklet resembles something of a maze, similar to the Battle of Hasting GB stamps!! Perhaps I am being too critical? I do like the Children's "Chrimbo" designs. Kind regards to both you and Clem, trust you are looking after "Our Island"
    John
    ---------------
    Hi John
    Yes, it is an odd desiign - so much so, that our post lady struggled to locate where the stamps were situated within the booklets when she came to use the cancel stamp for the CTOs we wanted!
    Our island is doing fine! We've just returned from an overnight stop in Paphos during one of our recce's.

    Hi Ted
    That was super quick! It was only posted on Wednesday morning to you from Cyprus.
    I've credited that order plus your latest with your Cyprus 100 Club member discount. Please check your email sent to you on Tuesday 22 October from info@cyprusstamps.co.uk with your Personal Discount Code for future use.
    If you haven't got it perhaps it's gone to your junk/spam folder? If not there, please drop me an email so I can reply directly to you....

  110. Thank you for your email. We have received the stamps. Please accept our thanks for such a prompt service. It must have taken a long time to sort the stamps out and the presentation was excellent.

    -------------------------------
    Thank you Andrew.
    I'm sorry you had to chase the update of your order and am not sure why you did not receive the automated email at the change in your order status. And thanks again for your further update later this afternoon to indicate you have now received your package (Monday 21 October).

    We dispatched the order to you on Wednesday 16 October by Registered Mail from Cyprus. With Registered Mail, the post office doesn't release it for collection by the post vans until the next day so it will have been taken to the airport on Thursday 17 October.

    Regards Michele (Cyprus Stamps)

    ------------------------------------
    Dear GA
    Thank you for your message and as per our emails, I'm writing to inform you that the correct item was dispatched to you today. Thank you for returning the incorrect stamps. On checking, it appears both stamp items had been transposed in our filing system.
    Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Please accept again our apologies for the inconvenience.

  117. Thank you for that Michele, you are a reservoir of knowledge dear lady. What a crazy situation where mail has to go via Mersin when posted from the north to the south and vice versa? Not surprising then that mail can go astray in the process. What have they done to our beloved island?
    Kind regards to both you and Clem.
    John

    -------------------------------
    I suppose that's all part of being "not recognized" by anywhere other than one country.
    It's very frustrating but it does mean we get to cross through the green line a couple of times a year when we go to locate the new issues.

  118. Regarding the T/Cyprus 2012 E. Visit pair:
    What is the significance of the "E Visit" and secondly what was the actual date of issue? Answers on a postcard please !!!!
    Regards to you all.
    John
    ___
    Hi John,
    An interesting point....

    The "Europa" Visit (Turkish Cyprus issue) was officially released into their emission programme on 8 May 2012.

    It's worthwhile noting these stamps do not bear the official Europa stamps logo as the Turkish post in the occupied north of Cyprus is not a PostEurop member.

    Stamps issued by the Turkish Republic of northern Cyprus are not recognized on an international level, either by the UPU or by PostEurop.

    Although not officially recognised by anywhere other than Turkey the stamps can still be used officially as all post from the north of Cyprus (Turkish Cypriot stamps) is dispatched via mainland Turkey (Mersin) and then onwards from there.

    Post sent from the occupied Turkish areas cannot be dispatched directly into the South of Cyprus - again, all post has to go via Mersin in Turkey and unfortunately is not guaranteed to reach the recipient.

    In the same respect neither can post from the Republic of Cyprus (south of the island) be mailed directly to the north of Cyprus - it still has to go via Turkey and often gets mislaid too, as we have found from personal experience...

    Only items posted from the Republic of Cyprus can be posted in a direct manner by airmail....

    Hope that helps some?

    Thank you in particular for the trouble you take in making the envelope the bought stamps are dispatched in a collector's item in itself.
    For me, you will be my regular source of Cypriot stamps in the future.

    Dear Graham

    We had another huge dust storm this morning and the mountains disappeared completely from view. We now have blue sky and white clouds again though but it's a bit on the breezy side with temperatures at this moment around 18C (at 5.45pm our local time).

    But glad you received the order I dispatched on Wednesday 8 January safely and quickly today (11 January). It’s not uncommon for items sent early in the week to arrive inside 3 days but it’s always good to hear about it when it happens!

  139. Already had a look at CD and really enjoyed the whole album!!! It is OUTSTANDING!!!
    Congratulations for the excellent work. Very, very beautiful!!!
    Like you, after printing, I have placed each page in a transparent pocket sleeve, binders, slip case and label.
    Also use hawid to fix the stamps in the places.
    The work is very large but very pleasant and excellent result.
    I'll be doing impressions gradually (the album is great, greater than expected) and if I have some question I will be reporting to you.
    Thank you very very much one more time!!!

    Marcelo's kind comments were made directly to the producer of the Cyprus Stamps Illustrated Album (self-printing) on CD, which he ordered through our website.
    Eastwood Albums are the producers of this excellent album in .pdf format on CD.

    The album pages (all fully illustrated in colour), in A4 format, cover all Cyprus stamps issued from 1880 right up to the present day and are planned to accommodate a straightforward collection, which includes the main watermark and perforation changes.

    There is a direct link to the Illustrated Album in the right hand column on each page of Cyprus Stamps website.

    I'm pleased to hear you received your order safely and I'm also glad the Christmas stamps have reverted to something more traditional than the glittery stars and snowballs we had previously....

    We are both fine and hope you are too. Hopefully, we will be heading to the beach later today at Episkopi/Curium but the weathermen have indicated we may see some changes this next week starting tonight with rain and thunder forecast.

    John

    ------------------------
    Hi John, that's great news! Good to know that not everything is "siga, siga" (slowly, slowly) in Cyprus!

    We're just back from the beach at Curium. We left the house in ominous black cloud and rumbling thunder and got to the beach without getting wet. Stayed fine so managed a couple of swims in the sea and got home to find a puddle on our front patio. Looks like we must have had shower in our absence.

    I will be posting photos on my personal Facebook page very soon: http://www.facebook.com/CyprusStamps

    We're looking after your island very well and intend to do so for a while longer...

    Good to hear from you!

  151. Yes I know, another silly question but I am going to ask anyway!!! Actual date of issue of the the Refugee stamp 2008 and the Refugee stamp 2012? please? I promise to try and not bother you again!!!
    Kind Regards,
    John

    ---------------------------
    Hi John

    No worries! You know I'm always happy to help...

    2008 Refugee stamp reprint was issued on 1st January 2008 and 2012 reprint was issued on 31st January 2012.

    A day off for me today, it's a Public Holiday in Cyprus on 15th August for Assumption Day (St Mary's) so we're off up the mountains where it's a bit cooler with some friends!

    Regards,
    Michele (Cyprus Stamps).

  155. my second order arrived safely today very pleased with items still waiting for my first order hope it arrives soon will be buying more in due course regards bob f

    ------------------------------------

    Hi Bob
    Many thanks for the update.
    I can see your orders were dispatched only a couple of days apart and it's not unknown that the second one can reach UK before the first! One of our regular commentors on the Guestbook can tell you the same has happened to him on occasion.
    Generally, I recommend to allow 7 - 14 days for receipt within Europe and more often than not, orders arrive much quicker.
    The first order was dispatched on 11th July and the other a couple of days later so I'm anticipating your initial order (Order ID: 819842) will be with you before the end of the week.
    If not, please can you contact me again?

    Kind regards

    Dear Carlos

    Thank you for taking the time to write back and inform me that both sets of the North Cyprus 2012 Europa stamps depicting the lighthouse area arrived safely with you in Argentina and that your friend also received his in the Netherlands.

    I wish you the very best of luck with your New Stamps with Lighthouses blog too!

  157. Good afternoon Michele and thank you for order#794906. Not too crazy about the design but it looks as though the souvenir sheet might prove to be a good addition eh? I wonder if the Cyprus Postal Authorities might be tempted to attempt a reprint?
    Regards to both you and Clem
    John

    Hi John
    Glad to see you received your order in good time. Again, I agree the design isn't exactly something to write home about...
    As for a reprint, perhaps they would do better to release the other 10,000 or so that appear to be being held back somewhere or by someone!

    --------------------------------
    Hello Alexander
    Many thanks for your feedback, it's much appreciated.
    I still cannot shed any light on why you received the second of your most recent orders but not the first...
    However, I can replace them so will pop them in the post to you on Monday. However, you will get the full sheet of the 2007 Cyprus Through the Ages, rather than the separated versions which you originally ordered.

    We're both very well and pleased your new smelly Jasmine stamps and the Cyprus 2012 Europa stamp arrived safe and well.

    Many thanks for your feedback and your comments on the way we did the listing. If there is anything we think should be brought to the attention of a collector on a particular item, we do our best to mention it and if possible to add an additional photo.
    Glad it worked out for you!

  166. Thank you for your comment Michele. At first glance of the miniature, one can be forgiven for thinking of a bird's eye view of a "Ping Pong" table!! Perhaps I am being too cynical.

  167. Hello Michele. Many thanks indeed for the new issues that arrived this morning, Tuesday 26. The London Olympics stamps are very nice but oh dear! the UEFA sheet is something of a disaster. I wonder if any other club members have an opinion on this?
    Kind Regards,
    John

    ------------------------------
    Hi John
    Well I'm pleased to hear your order arrived safely but sadly I can't fix the design of the UEFA mini sheet for you :-)
    The only saving grace really is the quite cleverly embedded round stamp which features the football boot resting on the ball with the price of the stamp on the inner edge of the football boot.
    But, we feel neither of the stamp issues were particularly adventurous given the theme. They could have done so much more with them....
    I may just have to share your comment in my regular social networks and see if anyone else has a view on it!

    Kind regards
    Michele (Cyprus Stamps)

    -------------------------------
    Comment from George on this too:

    I definately agree with John that the European Cup sheet stretches the acceptance of what a postage stamp/miniature sheet should look like. Could be an advert for trainers.

    Lets hope the designs will improve. (This is why I sold most of my modern stuff!!)

    Best regards George

    Hiya John
    Thanks for the update on your order. It's always a pleasure to hear you received it in good time ;-)
    As for MS 509, don't worry - we've never managed to get our hands on it up to now either :-) We're always on the lookout for new stuff but we haven't seen that one and it very rarely shows its' face.
    We went up Troodos today and found - SNOW! Lots of it.... Check out my personal blog: http://wp.me/p1uja5-1ks

  172. My wife ordered me some items on Wednesday evening and they were delivered in the UK before 9 am on Saturday. All the way from Cyprus! Now that's what I call excellent service.

    -------------------------------
    Hi Mike,
    That truly was an exceptional service! Your package would have been dispatched to our local post office in Polemedia village on Thursday morning, collected at midday to be sent to Larnaca airport and hopefully, on it's way either late on Thursday or Friday morning. So getting it by 9am on Saturday was a real achievement.
    It's not unknown for orders to reach our Cyprus stamp collectors inside 3 days but it's always good to get that kind of feedback when it happens!
    Thank you for taking the time to seek out my website and provide your feedback. I hope we will see you again soon...

    ---------------------------------
    Hi George
    Thanks for your update. It's good to hear the mail is getting out of Cyprus quickly.
    A shame we cannot say the same for mail arriving into Cyprus at the moment. There's been a massive backlog it seems for incoming mail and many people did not receive cards or presents in time for Christmas.
    The Cyprus-Mail has been reporting on it this last few days, then miraculously the next day a thousand mail bags appeared out of nowhere!
    But, that's life as we know it in Cyprus!
    All the best for 2012 to you and Maureen.

I recently sent a package of GB FDC's to my exchange partner in Athens and as far as I am concerned, it was stolen!!!! Probably my fault really because I sent the package via ordinary post rather than registered, stupid of me I know.It won't happen again!

    -----------------------------
    Hi John,
    Yeah, well - good old Cyprus postal services have done it again....
    Although the definitives were due to be released by the end of the year, we were informed recently that this may not now happen until next year.

    See the last entry (number 7) on here: http://www.cyprusstamps.co.uk/2011cyprusstampissues.html

    They keep changing the emission programme. Very frustrating for all who sail in her :-)

    Hi John
    Thanks for the update. That was a bit of a bummer! I think they should get a serious talking to. Talk about how to stop the art of stamp collecting in one easy lesson :-(

    Hiya John
    I'm pleased you received your orders and again, very quick to UK. Always good to know.
    I've just passed on your regards to my "Dispatcher" and he's happy you liked the cancellations. Our postmaster lets him cancel his own envelopes on the first day of issue so he always takes great care with them.
    It's always nice to hear you're happy with our service, we always aim to please. Our stamp collectors aren't just "collectors" to us - they are our friends too!

    Ah, thank you John!
    It took a while for us to build our own Cyprus collection of stamps which is why we didn't start selling sooner. Although of course, we did have an eBay shop for a few years before we branched out to launching our own website. I'm pleased you appreciate us! Thank you for that :-)

  194. Dear Michele,
    Just to let you know that the stamps arrived safely this morning (14 Jul 11). I did not expect to receive them so soon. Thank you for sorting the stamps into small envelopes which was very helpful. A very good service.
    Every good wish,
    Graham

    ----------------------------------------
    Hello Graham

    Many thanks for your feedback and for taking the time to let me know you received your order.

    We've noticed that orders do seem to reach the UK very quickly and often get comments that our items can often be received faster than packages sent from inside the UK, which is quite amazing!

    My husband sorts all the stamps into the small envelopes for dispatch as we do find it's helpful to our collectors. I'm pleased you found it useful too.
    A lot less work at your end!

    Kind regards
    Michele (www.CyprusStamps.co.uk)

    Hi John

    I can't believe you've received your order already. It was only posted on Wednesday from Cyprus - that's totally amazing!

    We're both glad you're happy with them and thank you, we are both fine. It's getting hotter almost everyday now but we're still looking after "your" island for you :-) We hope all is well at your end too.

    Best regards

  196. Thank you Michelle. Not being computer literate and an "Old Boy" to boot, I did not understand why I was not able to order as normal. I was about to give up when I stumbled on the "NEW ISSUE TABLET" and was able to place the order. Life never gets easier fer the old 'uns !!!!!
    Kind REgards,
    John

    -------------------------------------
    Not only that John, you forgot to ask for your 10% discount fir your Cyprus100 Club Membership ;-)

    Don't worry though, I will "fix" it for you later!

    I'm now trying to decide what to do for the rest of the day.

    Do I log onto my works laptop or wait till later to check my hundreds of emails I've received since I left the office on Friday or shall I go and have a read in the sun whilst it's still out?

    Hmmm, what do you reckon?

    Speak soon!

    Hi John,
    Good to hear from you! We are both well and hope you are too?

    The new issues are on the site and available now for pre-orders.

  198. Thanks, Michele.

    Just to confirm that the stamps arrived safely this morning, and I am very pleased with them. I am also very impressed with the speed of delivery, and to receive some additional Cyprus stamps on the outer envelope was a bonus!

    I will certainly have no hesitation in placing an order with you again in the future.

    Many thanks again,

    Kind regards,

    Phil.

    -------------------------------------

    Hi Phil

    Thank you for your update.

    It's always good to get feedback from new collectors after they have received their orders.

    I'm very pleased to hear you liked them and that you were impressed with the service you received from Cyprus Stamps :-)

    I look forward to seeing you again in the future.

    Hi John,

    It's wonderful to know our packages can reach our collectors so quickly and yet we can send envelopes to Paphos (less than 70km away) which can take a week to reach their destination...

    Very weird!

    Glad you liked the new issues. Did you spot the new Refugee Fund Stamp on your envelope? That was issued on the same day but we had no advance images so had no idea what colour it was going to be.

    Speak soon....

    Kind regards as always

    A much appreciated touch was to use copies of stamps I had ordered Mint as postage. I now have used copies

    Hi Glynne
    First of all, thank you for taking the time to post your comments.

    That is an amazingly quick delivery!

    The first day of issues were posted on Wednesday from Cyprus in the late morning after collecting our pre-orders from the post office - and here we have a receipt in the UK on Friday afternoon!!!!!

    Where appropriate, we do always try to put at least one of the new issues on the order package. We know that stamp collectors don't always collect used stamps be we feel it's a nice touch if we can do it.

    I hope you will visit us again in the future at Cyprus Stamps website.

    Best regards

    Hello John
    Thank you for the update on receiving the latest 23 March issues. We're glad you like them. The aromatic Roses stamps are the first in a series of "smelly" stamps so that will be one to watch for the future.

    Did you see there is a surprise new issue added for June 2008? Our Cyprus Nobel Peace Prize winner is being honoured with a new stamp!

    Thank you for your kind comments too. It is always good to receive feedback on our website and our service.

    Wishing you good health.

  202. Hello Michele. Wow! Another lightning delivery of new issues from Aphrodite's Island! Incredible mail service, thank you. Posted from Cyprus on 28.1.2011, arrived UK 31.1.2011!!! Just as good as it can get I would suggest. Here is an example of worldwide postal inneficiency. I am still awaiting delivery of stamps from Guatemala that was despatched on 30.12.10 by registered post!!!!!!! Where is Guatemala, central America or the dark side of the moon!! No wonder I am getting so cynical in my twilight years.

    ---------------------------------------

    John,
    You should know by now that all our mail sent to you is very "special" but as for being cynical I'm inclined to agree with you - it's something you seem to get with age!

    A bit like suddenly waking up one morning to find you have developed something called "patience". A little bit of it reached my direction after I hit the age of 30 - but, not a lot!

    Sadly, we cannot do anything to resolve your postal service problem from Guatemala :-(

    Till the next time...

    As for Cyprus, it's starting to cool down a little now and is going dark earlier of an evening. No need for the A/C anymore, which is just as well after our last electricity bill!

  208. Dear Michele,

    I am delighted with the stamps I have purchased from you. The first order arrived in three days, I could not believe the speed of this delivery.

    The second order took eight days to arrive this was sent air mail.

    My husband and I have been visiting Cyprus for the past 12 years and enjoy our holidays very much. During the last four years I have been collecting mint stamps each time we visit. I particulaly enjoy the mosaic stamps, the latest set Roman mosaics from Paphos are my favourite (1989 756 - 770).

    Although I was only going to collect Cyprus Stamps for the past 20 years - your web site is so easy to use it has given me the opportunity of collecting many more Cyprus stamps than I ever expected to find. I have also learnt the difference in your stamp quality as we call our stamps "mint mounted" whilst you call them MLH "Mint lightly hinged". It is great to understand the different terminology.

    It is difficult to see stamps when they are listed in groups but to be able to click on to the stamps and see an enlargement before ordering is fantastic. I also appreciate seeing the stamps as this enables me to ensure that I am ordering the correct stamps rather than just ordering using the Stanley Gibbons numbers.

    Many thanks for your e-mail. I am sure I will spend many happy hours searching for additional stamps and also your prices are very reasonable.

    Sincerely
    Gloria

    Reply from Cyprus Stamps

    Hello Gloria

    Many thanks for your detailed reply and I've very pleased to hear you are happy with the site and it seems we've now given your "collecting bug" a bump!

    To your question regarding the stamps you are seeking, I do only have them in MLH condition. I have sent the links which will take you directly to the items.

    As a Tip: you can search much more easily by simply entering the year (ie 1953) into the Product Search field.

    To be honest, the Search option is a bit of a bug bear for me as it does not perform adequately but is currently being looked into for future upgrading by the Techie guys! One can only live in hope....

    We have now been living in Cyprus for a little over 6 and a half years and like you, we were visiting for many years before we made the move permanent.

    Thanks again for your open opinion.

    Best regards
    Michele

    Thank you Roger

    I'm very pleased that you are happy with our service at Cyprus Stamps.

    The Cyprus postal service does often surprise us and many collectors have indicated they can often receive packages from us much quicker than items dispatched directly from their own country destination.

    Strange - but true!

    I hope we will see you again soon and in the meantime, if we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Regards
    Michele

    -------------------------------------
    Hi John
    Thanks very much for that news!

    It's quite amazing how the post can sometimes get to UK so quickly.

    Always takes between 7 to 10 days in the opposite direction though, when you think it would be the other way around...

    Very strange, but good to know it happens!

    By the way, I had that cold Keo last night and thought about you :-)

    A bit cooler today and we even have a small breeze. No doubt the breeze will disappear in another hour or so. LOL

    I really liked them too but I am a great fan of trains so I'm a bit biased ;-)

    I am starting to put together a list for Thematic collectors in the right hand column on the website, so anything further with trains will end up under Transport (when I get to it).....

    I hope to hear from you again in the future. Keep in touch.

  218. Thank you Michele for order received this morning. Regarding the 2010 Moufflon vending machine labels, any idea of details? Who designed them? Does anyone else have a point of view?
    Regards to you all.
    John

    ---------------------------------------

    Hi John,
    Sorry for the dealy in replying to you. Not had chance to spit recently as I've been very busy at the office.

    For the Moufflon vending machine labels info, I can tell you as follows:
    There are 2 label designs - 1 green/yellow and the other with a pinkish/purple.

    The artwork & design is by Melane Efstathiadou and Glafkos Theofylakatou.

    Printer: Christos Papachristoforou, Nicosia.

    Stamp size: 50x24mm

    Text on the 2010 Presentation Pack is kindly provided by the Department of Forestry, Nicosia.

    I will send you an example of the new 2010 Refugee Fund reprint in your next order. It fits in ever so nicely with the cachet design first day of issues my husband made prior to the issue.

    He didn't know it was going to be orange as we receive no prior notification of these stamps - so that was a very pleasant surprise when we realised it!

    You can see one of his examples at this link: http://www.cyprusstamps.co.uk/shoponline/prod_880669-Cyprus-Stamps-SG-2010-e1-Refugee-fund-tax-FDC-c692.html

    I hope the weather is picking up in UK and am pleased to hear about your son.

    Kind regards

  219. Just received a copy of the 1928 £5.00 forgery, it is a cracker of a forgery and as suggested, an excellent space filler. I am very pleased with it, anyone else take advantage of this offer? It would be nice to hear other opinions on this one.

  220. Hello Michele. Flight tickets are being transferred to my daughter, her partner and grandchildren. Lost a small fortune on the saga, about two thirds !! It won't happen again, I learn fast! Not sure where they will be staying yet, I am hoping to send stamps along with her for your offer. Trust you are well.
    Kind Regards,
    John

    ----------------------------------------
    Hi John

    Thanks for the update and at least I suppose it's better than losing all the money, although it's no consolation :-(

    It's a shame we will not get to meet you this time, but another visit perhaps should be planned for the future?

    Will chat nearer the time - just drop me an email when the visit is closer but if you have any scanned images before your daughters' visit, it may give us chance to have an advance peep.

    In case you're interested, we've just managed to get hold of some SG17a 1928 £5 Cyprus stamps. (Genuine reproductions, of course) - great as a space filler and have good perforations. Complete with watermark. Circa year 2000.

    Will be listed very soon!

    Catch up again soon.

  221. Thank you for that Michele, I will pass your observations onto my son, who knows, there might be a little salvage along the line. I suppose, in the final analysis, I could have flown on my lonesome but not a lot of joy in that really. I will let you know the outcome, I do so hope that you don't get a postcard from Skeggy !!!!!

    Kind Regards, John

  222. Hello Michele,
    Oh dear! It happened, my son has been made redundant so now it looks as though our trip is off. We are left with four tickets, bought and paid for on Monarch Airlines and I will probably end up with a weekend at Skeggy !!! And I though that my luck was beginning to change!! Probably no chance of getting our money back from the airline. Life eh? I was so looking forward to the trip too.
    Kind Regards,
    John

    ----------------------------------------
    Oh damn, John

    We were really looking forward to finally getting to meet you too :-(

    I do believe you can cancel with Monarch through your insurance. You will lose some of the costs but should manage to salvage something. The other option would be to see if they will allow a name change and allow you to resell them?

    Let me know what happens.... I might be able to advertise them on some forums at this end.

    Or, there may be a cloud with a silver lining and hope your son finds something else very quickly. Lets hope so...

    Keep me posted. You can always send me an email directly.

    ---------------------------------------
    Hiya John

    Yes, we went to the Sunshine Restaurant at the far end of Curium Beach and had souvlakia kebab and a cold Keo :-)

    On the way back we could see there was a big fire somewhere on Akrotiri RAF base - lots of thick smoke was spiraling into the sky. I heard today it was the Rainbow Theatre that burned down. Investigation is underway as to how it started. It's been closed for 2yrs apparently...

    Next (3rd) stamp issue is due out on 5th May - the new Europa and the reprint of the Refugee Tax Fund stamp.

    I thought I sent you the list, did I not?

  231. Hello Michele. Very many thanks indeed for new issues that arrived yesterday morning. Special postmark applied in Cyprus on 17th and arrived UK on 19th? Better than UK 1st class inland !!!!!! I was pretty fortunate though, the airmail envelope had not been sealed very well and had been left open !!!!! Great!! About time my luck changed!!
    Kindest Regards
    John

    ----------------------------------------

    Hello John

    Wow! Just how fast did they arrive? That's amazing! Funnily enough, I only remarked on how fast Cyprus post seems to get to UK than than the other way round earlier today...

    As for the envelope, I just checked with my Dispatch "department" ;-) and it seems the airmail envelopes are self sealing and when we send from home - my dispatcher adds extra tape to make sure they are sealed securely.

    However, as these were FDI's - they were packaged and dispatched directly from our usual post office, (Mixalis) who looks after us collectors very well, and so the tape was not applied this time...

    I'm very sorry for this oversight John and will make sure next time, we take extra tape with us for 1st issues.

    I'm glad to hear you got them safely... But, thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    Hey, see you in July. Not long to go now! Have just got in from sitting outside in the sun on the back veranda reading my book....

    Kindest regards

  233. Hello Michele, Very many thanks indeed for the new issue stamps that arrived this morning. 50th Anniversary of the Republic of Cyprus? My God, how time races on, to think that I was stationed at Episkopi then, having just arrived from Tripoli during November 1959. I suppose that I have given my age away now eh?
    Kindest Regards,
    John

    Hi John,
    Thank you for your comments. I just love getting your feedback as you always have something fun or interesting to tell me. Yes, I've just done the math and reckon you are probably around 18 - 20 years older than me! See you in the summer - bring your wellies! LOL

  236. Hello Michele. I have been a little busy of late and so apologise for not thanking you earlier for your dedication of Cyprus in the 1940s. Very nice too, a bit before my time!! However I identified the aquaduct, the times I travelled up that road on my way to the SBA at Dhekelia!!!! Lovely memories came flooding back. Saturday evenings and a few beers along the seafront at Larnaca, happy days. Have a lovely Christmas and a cracking New Year. I leave my island in very good hands! Kind Regards, John

    ---------------------------------------
    Hi John,
    No problem - we are always pleased to hear from you, no matter when. We too have fond memories of the aqueduct as we spent 3 weeks in Larnaca one winter (towards the end of November 1992) and used to enjoy seeing it all lit up just before we reached the fire station when we were returning in the evenings from our frequent trips to Limassol. You see, even then - I was already planning my "escape" route to Cyprus!
    I will keep an eye open for some other snippets that may keep you in touch. We also drove a few times out of Larnaca to Ayia Napa along the Dhekelia road past the refineries. Now, with the new highway and lots of building along the sea road, it's never instantly recognisable.
    You too have a good Christmas and we both hope the New Year is better for you.
    Looking forward to catching up with you later in 2010.
    All the very best
    Michele

    LOL George, don't you go giving away all my secrets about the only way I decipher which monarch is on the stamps! History was never my strong point at school.
    Anyway, glad to see you finally received them and it looks like the back office problem may have been resolved now too. If you get any more issues like the last time, please let me know so I can pass on the details to the Tech team.
    Hope you have a great Christmas & New Year too. We are off to a hotel on New Years Eve as we have a friend over for holidays.
    Many thanks again
    Michele

  239. Thank you Michele for the new issue this morning. I wonder what others think about the Christmas issue? My first impression was, strange set. Hope you are well out there on my beautiful island !! Have a nice Christmas and every success for 2010.

    Kindest Regards,
    John

    Many thanks for your comments John. Always a pleasure to hear from you!

    I must say we were a little disappointed by the plain look of the Christmas issues. Other than the glitter effect on the stars, they aren't very imaginative. My husband makes his own cachets and they are much more inventive, I have to admit.

    Did you see my post in the Blog page of the website with the British Pathe footage from 1940's Cyprus yet? I dedicated it to you....

    Kind regards

    Glad you received your order safely, particularly with the UK postal strikes causing so many delays.

    It's always a pleasure to hear from you and I'm very glad we could be of service to you once again.
    Meanwhile, "your" island is doing very nicely and is finally, starting to cool down a little. But it does mean that the afternoons in the swimming pool on the local timeshare complex are numbered ;-)
    Look forward to hearing from you again soon and hope all is well with you.

  247. Hi Cyprus Stamps!

    Just ordered some stamps for my father-in-law and he wanted me to tell you that he was amazed by your fast delivery and excellent presentation.

    He was also pleased to see the excel catalogue of Cyprus stamps dating from 1960-present and would like to request a copy.

    Any ideas of how to get a list that dates from around 1880?

    Many thanks and keep up the good work!

    Reply from Cyprus Stamps:

    Thank you for your lovely comments and for letting me use them on our Guestbook.

    It's great to receive such good feedback and makes all the hardwork that goes into keeping the website stocked and updated all worthwhile.

    I'm glad to hear your father-in-law was pleased with the service.

    I am attaching 2 files in reply to your request for the list of Cyprus stamp issues.

    We are just updating the Northern Cyprus stamps and if you would like the updated version to be sent when it is completed, please just ask.

    As for the issues from 1880, we have made a start on it but, it's rather complex with too many variants and looks like it will be a long and painful progress. But, as the saying in Cyprus goes - siga, siga....

  253. Michele,
    Just received my first pre-order of Cyprus stamps . . . and delighted with everything. Have never seen a braille stamp before and glad to see the post office is so progressive.
    I also want to thank you for the Visitor Map of Cyprus - helps me understand the Greek/Turkish Divide - not sure why any government would want to divide something so small?
    Will be looking forward to many other stamps collected from your region

  260. An excellent suggestion from George regarding new issues. I would suggest though that perhaps NEW ISSUES of stamps could be delivered to collectors four times a year. I say this because of the ever increasing number of issues made by most postal authorities in recent years. I currently get my new issues from a UK based dealer but would be delighted if a NEW ISSUE service could be started by Cyprus Stamps.
    Kind Regards to all.

  261. Hi
    Have bought from you twice and have received 5 star service both times. I keep looking for the stamps to fill the gaps.

    Regards George

    P.S Could you supply new issues for us - perhaps twice a year. Geo
