    Fellow Philatelist:
    For nearly seven years I have dedicated much of my time and expense to the development, promotion and running of StampOffers.com.
    Alas, I have reached a point in my career that I am just not able to commit the amount of time needed for such a great site and community.
    Therefore, I am announcing that effective immediately, StampOffers.com has been acquired by Wensy.com.
    Thank you and God bless my friends. It has been fun!
