About Us: The Short Version

Founded in 1947. Owned & operated by the Pitt family since 1982. Most of our customers have been dealing with us since the days of rotary dial telephones and inline six-cylinder motors.
Loyalty would be a good word.

About Us: The Long Version

Lighthouse Philatelics was established in 1947 and catered mainly to the needs of stamp collectors.
In 1981 the business was taken over by Alan, Margaret and Ian Pitt, changing the name to Renniks Publications after the 1993 acquisition of the Renniks brand (est. 1964 by D H Skinner).
