The business is owned by Vincent Green who is a collector of stamps, coins and paper money. He’s been involved professionally in philately for over 40 years, visiting major stamp auctions across the globe. As a customer of auctions, he felt he could do it better and consequently, your stamps will be marketed in weekly eshots, the auction is posted on diverse websites in the UK, Europe and America, and live online bidding is available on three different platforms and as an additional but vital service we are also prepared to purchase stamps immediately rather than owners having to wait for the auction.



We are one of the world’s leading experts in the field of selling rare stamps, postal history, entire collections and estates of stamps and other collectables.

Our public auctions are held several times each year and attract an international clientele to our auction rooms and via live bidding on three different internet platforms, we also post each auction on well-known websites in based in the UK, Europe and America. There are few auctions who do this.

Cheshire Stamp Auctions are the public auction arm of Sandafayre (Holdings) Ltd who have been in continuous business since being founded as a stamp collectors’ shop in 1976, on the main street of the pretty market town of Knutsford.


In 1980 we produced our first ‘Postal Auction’ catalogue. In the days before the internet it was a novel concept that brought the excitement of stamp auctions directly into people’s homes, allowing them to compete directly, on a level playing field with other collectors from around the world.

In 2001 we were one of the first stamp auction companies to join the internet revolution! Nowadays, all our auctions are available to view and bid online, although many of our customers still prefer to receive our printed illustrated catalogues and bid by post, telephone or email and we will continue to offer this service for many years to come.

Our commitment to making auctions user-friendly has always shone through and served us well. There are no silly questions, please get in touch to experience great auction service as a buyer or seller.
