[Nice, email – eh..?] “Cheers Taylor, and welcome to the world of stamps!

Can I recommend you may like to consider joining the NZ Stamp Collectors’ Club? They are in Christchurch, and have a meeting once a month at 67 _________ Street, _________.

And they have an auction evening at the same address on 30th August 2017, starting at 7.30 pm. Advance viewing of the lots on offer from 6 pm till 7.15 pm.

For other art-related stamps you seek, I suggest visit ____ Stamp Shop, 3#3 ___ Ave, Christchurch. They are open from 9 am till 6 pm, and you will find _____ there very helpful. He can give you more details of the club too, as he is president there.

regards, _____.”
