If you are selling stamp collections or are buying stamps for your collection or philatelic investment portfolio then we offer thousands of different stamps and philately related items every week.
We also hold at 6 public auctions each year under the banner of "Cheshire Stamp Auctions" with a printed catalogue, a room filled with bidders, an auctioneer wielding a gavel and an online platform allowing people from all over the world to bid live!
In 1980 we produced our first ‘Postal Auction’ catalogue. In the days before the internet it was a novel concept that brought the excitement of stamp auctions directly into people’s homes… such was the popularity of these auctions that we were soon mailing our catalogues to every corner of the globe! We have been running these “Mail Bid Auctions” ever since.

We are managed by the owner Vincent Green, Andrew Morris, Director of Philately and Anthony Oakes our Business Manager
We occupy modern offices on a business park in Knutsford, Cheshire – just to the south west of Manchester and east of Liverpool, a couple of hours north from London. We are easy to find as Knutsford has its own junction on the M6 Motorway and its own railway station - Manchester Airport is just 20 minutes away.
Supported by our experienced and dedicated staff, we make sure that things are run according to our founding principles of service, satisfaction and integrity... how do we know we've stayed true to these values? Because Vincent & Andy were there in the early days and have been with Sandafayre ever since!
