Got Stamps?

I don't get down as far south as La Mesa that much, but when I do, I always take time to stop in and see Debbie Beals and her dad at Stamp Delights/Grossmont Optical.

Debbie runs the stamp side and her dad, Grant, runs the optical side.

Although, when I was in the store today, I saw Debbie helping one of dad's customers order a new pair of specs, and she sure knew what she was doing over on that side of the store as well!

Debbie and I thought back to the last time I had been in, and it had been almost a year ago. Wow, time flies, doesn't it?

I had never taken any photos of the store before, but while Debbie and her dad were helping a customer on the optical side, I walked to the back room and then back to the front and took a few shots.

I tell everyone I know, that if they are ever down in that neck of the woods, to be sure to stop in.
This is the largest and best stamp store I have ever been in!
And Debbie has it soooooooo well organized.

Have you ever seen anything like this before?! And get this . . . I didn't even take photos of all of the stamps and a lot of the OTHER goodies Debbie has in the store. Yep, there's even MORE!

Here's the address: 8324 Parkway Drive, La Mesa, CA 91942-2818
