    I have been in the stamp business on and off since 1975 when my father and I started a fledgling stamp business in New York. . . .

    In 1977 (or so) I began to delve into the stamp auction business under the name of Gemini Stamp Co. and was in partnership with my brother for two years. We soon parted ways and I continued the auctions under my own name until about 1982. While I didn't run auctions for the next few years, I continued to run Mail Auctions and sell via price lists. In 1985 I stopped selling stamps altogether and concentrated on my family opting instead for a steady paycheck in the business world.

    Fast forward to 2000. I had moved from New York to Las Vegas in 1986 and decided to dabble in stamps once again by offering a few items on eBay. I started with a meager $500 investment to test the water and bought a few things at an auction. When I saw the potential for running a full-time stamp business again, I began buying and selling more and more until I was able to quit my day job and focus entirely on the stamp business. In 2002, I registered the name Southwest Stamps in Nevada and the company was born. Several years passed with the company slowly building. Then, in 2005, my wife, Cheryll, and I made the move to South Carolina. We both quit our jobs and began to focus entirely on the business. . . .
