Whether you have been building your philatelic collection for years with care and dedication or recently inherited a stamp album from a beloved relative or dear friend; we make competitive offers to purchase all types of good quality stamp collection, accumulations and single rarity.



If you decide you want to sell all or even some of your stamps and want to achieve the highest possible sales value, then we can help.

We can purchase your stamps directly from you at an agreed price, giving you money immediately. Alternatively, if your stamps are potentially of high enough commercial value we can sell your stamps in one of our public auctions. We will advertise and promote your stamps to our worldwide audience of stamp collectors.

Contact us now to discuss the potential sale of your stamp collection.


TO GET OUR BEST OFFER we need to see your collection!

As a first step, it is best to email us a few images of your stamps today. It is best to simply take 5-6 photographs of your stamps sending all images in one email to Remember to include your name and where you are located in the world. If you would like us to phone you remember to include a contact number. We will then give you our initial feedback and recommend next steps

Sandafayre is unable to make binding offers from photographs alone. It is often the detailed condition of stamps which makes a huge difference in the value of your stamps.

Alternatively you can send your collection to our office and we will endeavour to make you a confirmed offer for your stamps within 10 days of receipt. We recommend sending your stamp collection to us through Parcelforce in the UK or a recognised international carrier such as DHL, FedEx or UPS with tracking. If sending from outside the UK, there may be import taxes which you will be required to pay. For advice on shipping please get in touch.

If you are local to North West England you can bring your stamps to our office in Knutsford Cheshire for appraisal. It is always best to call ahead or make an appointment to ensure someone is available to appraise your stamp collection. Contact us today to make the arrangements.
