Philately … it’s in the Matthews family DNA

Philately for All
One of the most appealing aspects of Philately is that your collection can be based on whatever topics and scope that you choose. A collection can be defined to suit your most relevant interests and budget.
Many collections are based on the issues of specific countries but don’t let that restrict you. Collections can be based on diverse topics … from geographic regions to specific themes such as space travel, ornithology or Disney characters.
Collections may specialise in general stamp issues, omnibus issues, first day covers, postmarks, presentation packs, mainsheets etc. The permutations are almost endless.
Whether you are a complete novice or a qualified expert, the philatelic community relies on shared information. That is why we created M&S Philately … to share our passion through the publication of our Blog, as well as providing philatelic Services such as Purchasing, Valuations and Sales.
