Basketball Festival Riga '94 FDC

This cover is also from my old collection. Basketball has been my favorite sport since I was in school. :0)

Classic Books cover from United States

Here is a nice cover from United States posted in 1996. On the right upper corner is "Classic Books" issued in 1993, which are "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" by Kate Douglas Wiggin; "Little House on the Prairie" by Laura Ingalls Wilder; "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain and "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott.

The stamp in the middle is "Mary Chesnut" from "Civil War" issued in 1995 and the left one is "AIDS awareness" issued in 1993.

I'm sorting up my old cover collection and found these 2 nice covers.

Frankly speaking, I always like stamps from Macau,Hong Kong and Taiwan more than many stamps issued by P.R.China. Their stamps are designed with a deeper touch on depicting Chinese cultures.

My brand new stock albums

I've lost my passion on stamp collecting for the past decade. You guess why? Because I couldn't find any decent albums to organize my growing collection then! What a pity. Until recently I found these perfect albums, I decided to restart collecting stamps from the scratch. These standardly-designed albums have a lot of choices of pages that I could organize my stamps easily and flexibly. They have a quality that could rival with Lighthouse but with a very friendly pricetag.

Of course they are made in China.:0)

The Beautiful Corners in Europe I & II

I bought these 2 nice folders a couple of weeks ago. These are from a series of 3 folders which focus on the beautiful scenery of the member countries. The last one will be issued in 2011. Circulation for these two is 15000 and 9000. For those who are not familiar with sepac stamps, please visit Sepac.
