to G. Keiser & Zoon is a sentimental journey through the time before tablets and digital communication. The over 100-year-old store offers letters, stamps and cards from past to present, and from South Africa to Iceland. Search by topic – animals, the royal family, the famous Dutch ‘children’s stamps’ series, Brazil or the Red Cross – and marvel at miniature works of art from across the centuries and the globe.
covers every topic you can imagine, and includes a number of incredibly rare examples from the world of stamps and postcards. Some are used, others still brand new. There is also an entire collection of used envelopes and cards with elaborate addresses and stamps, greetings from faraway lands and – if you are lucky – with a story to tell: a forgotten letter, or a faded old postcard…
of G. Keiser & Zoon is limited exclusively to stamps, coins, postcards and other postal items. Current proprietor Andre Hilgersom, who has worked in the store since 1980, is always happy to give extended demonstrations, and has fine stories in indefatigable supply for anybody interested.
