H O M E P A G E and latest NEWS spring 2024:

Dear Clients, welcome to the website of JANSSEN STAMPS.

Please take your time to go for a browse through all or various pages, enjoy the pictures of stamps, accessories and our museum pages and check what you might be of interest for you. If you might have any questions, feel free to contact us by email.

Unfortunately we had to change our prices for all imported items from Germany. This is caused by inflation in Europe, by price changes of our German suppliers, as well as higher freight costs and last not least by the current higher exchange rate of EURO to Rand. Our own calculation has and will not be changed. We ask for your kind understanding. Thank you.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you have placed an order with us, please make sure that you only pay to our NEDBANK account with correct account number, as shown on the invoice with proof of payment to us by email. This will avoid any cases of fraud by phishing! We will never ask you to pay to another suspiciouis account by email for payment!


The next Stamp Fair will take place on Saturday, 3th August 2024.

Please visit us at the Fair every first Saturday of the month, or as announced otherwise by the management. The venue is still at the Bellville Valley DRC Hall, cnr. Postma & St Andrews Street in Bellville. Opening time is from 9.00h - 12.30h.
Hope to see you all in the Hall. Our stand is in the left corner next to the stage.
In case you are not coming to the Stamp Fair and need any stamps, accessories or other items as listed on our website, you are welcome to order by email for quick shipment by PostNet.
