Some of them you could inform had been made use of, and some of them are just so exceptional that you just would by no means obtain them wherever other than in this collection. It came from somebody who really experienced a passion for stamps.”
The new place also lets Lowden to work on her very own art while handling the retail part. She also conducts artwork classes there with her students.
