I attended the 132nd annual stamp show this weekend past. Hosted by the American Philatelic Society and the American Topical Association, it was (for me anyway) overwhelming. I was able to find some of the stamps I wanted for my own collection, and the exhibits were amazing.
If I had my druthers, I would have started with smaller shows to get my feet wet. The dates did not work out for that, and since I’m not too far from Columbus OH, I took the plunge. I set up a mobile office in my hotel room for the weekend. Worked out great.
This weekend I will attend a much smaller stamp show here in town, hosted by the local stamp club. Whew! ~Tom~
