World Stamp Show in New York

May 10, 2016

New York will be hosting an International Stamp Exhibition that is held once every ten years in the United States.  This year, the show will be held May 28th through June 4th, 2016 at The  Javits Center in New York.  The last International Exhibition in New York was in 1956 (which I attended.)

Admission is free and the Show will be a treat for every one of the 250,000 people expected to attend.  About 200 of the world’s most notable dealers will be selling and buying philatelic material of all kinds, 70 philatelic societies and stamp clubs will be represented and 50 foreign governments will set up postal facilities offering their stamps at face value truly taking you on a trip around the world.  There will be more than 70,000 pages of competitive stamp exhibits along with a Court of Honor and Invited Exhibits that will display priceless rarities; and the exhibits will show almost any way stamps can be collected. The U.S. Postal Service will issue new stamps every day of the show along with commemorative show postmarks.

Stamp collecting is a fantastic and wonderful hobby that can provide many hours of pleasure and education and enables you to meet or correspond with collectors with similar interests, some from all over the world.  I am a member of the Collectors Club of New York with its own building at 22 East 35th Street.  If you live in the area and think you might want to expand your collecting interests you should consider joining this club.  They will be having an open house Monday through Friday May 30th to June 3rd from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.  You are welcome to visit and take a peek at our facilities and meet with some of our members.  When you attend the show, stop at the Collectors Club mega booth on the show floor and find out more about this world renowned club.

Everyone that has ever put aside any type of philatelic material is a collector, though perhaps not serious at all.  If you are able, come to the show, spend a few hours and see if you want to expand your interests.
