I'm interested in how Buyers find stamps on this website.

Would you be so kind as to help me with answers to the following?

Do you find stamps by going directly to a Store or do you just do a search by Country, Date etc.. in the general listings?

Do you find the Stores helpful ?

Do you search by Catalogue Number and if so what Catalogue?

Do you check if a Seller is "Currently active" ?

Do you ask the Seller a question before buying ?

For example: When I buy I Search by Country and Date in the general listings and then go to the Store of the Seller that has the stamp I need. Only sometime I will go to the Store directory to find the store of Seller that has lots of listings.
