Packets Plus began in 2000 with the object of promoting the already existing packet business
and expanding into other collectibles. Due to many moves connected with our
property management jobs, the business spent many hours and miles traveling on U-Haul trucks
across the country. I was beginning to be known as the itinerant stamp dealer.
I became a stamp dealer in 1974 and have enjoyed all of these years making new friends and
helping young people get a start at stamp collecting.
However, the time has come to turn in our U-Haul punch card and settle down. After ice storms in
Arkansas, 127 degrees at the edge of Death Valley and horizontal blowing snow in Tonopah
Nevada, it's time for warm desert living.
We moved to Boulder City, Nevada 6 years ago and agreed, "This is it". Vonna and I both love
the desert. We are both working to expand the business to include a variety of collectibles. We
hope you enjoy browsing through our site. We will be adding material weekly. Thank you.
