Stamps are like paintings of history: they commemorate historical events

Lori Smolenski

Lori has always been passionate about stamps. It is now 40 years since she got her first stamp of the Olympic Games. She liked it so much that she has never stopped collecting stamps until today. During these 40 years as a collector, she has acquired vast knowledge and experience with stamps.

Around 25 years ago, she opened her own stamps shop, until 2004, when she started selling her stock online. She is a true stamps enthusiast, from head to toe. This is why she always wanted to keep working with stamps. When she saw the vacancy at Catawiki, she had no doubts.

Catawiki has offered Lori the opportunity to work with her hobby and to keep learning more and more about stamps. Every day she learns something new. She loves doing research on very unusual stamps and to discover the stories behind them. This is why she does not focus only on screenings lots, but also to get to know the sellers, so she makes sure they offer interesting good quality stamps that could make other buyers’ collections complete. Her enthusiasm, commitment and experience, drive Lori to make her auctions bigger and better for everyone: sellers and buyers.

  • 40 years of experience as a stamps collector
  • She owned her own stamps shop for more than 10 years
  • Passionate about the design and the history behind the stamps
