We are Bonnie and Roger Riga. We own and operate Rigastamps, specializing in stamps that most other dealers choose to ignore, the stamps not listed in Scott's Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue. We've been in business for over 30 years, participating in major stamp shows from coast to coast and building an extensive stock of poster stamps, foreign revenues, and other cinderellas. We now offering this material items for sale on eBay and in our web store. Recently, we created our Papertigress division to handle the other stamps, covers, and ephemera items that we've acquired over the years.
Before forming our business in 1982 we both had collected stamps since childhood. What began as a way to convert duplicate material into funds to expand our collections, soon became our driving interest. We both are active in all aspects of the business and hold memberships in the American Philatelic Society, the Cinderella Stamp Club, l'Arc en Ciel, and the Poster Stamp Collectors Club.
For whatever else collecting may be to a collector, it is first and foremost a hobby. As such it should be at least enjoyable and - dare we say it - fun. We try to make it so for our customers.
