Plan ahead for stamp shows

Janet Klug writing in Linn's says, "In just a few short weeks stamp collectors from all over the world will gather in Washington, D.C., for the eight-day world philatelic exhibition...

How true! Having attended several of these in the past I know from personal experience the importance of planning ahead.

"There is so much to see and do, so many miles to cover, and so many dealers to shop that you could easily go into a sort of philatelic overload and short out," says Klug.

She offers some really good tips not only about attending Washington 2006 but stamp shows in general.
