The Kristen Ollies Collection

The National Postal Museum website has an on-line exhibition of Kristen Ollies collection of stamps about the life of Queen Elizabeth.

According the site, "Kristen began stamp collecting in third grade, when her teacher started a school stamp club. She and other children exhibited their collections at the National Postal Museum in 1997. That sparked Kristen's enthusiasm, and she has continued to build and exhibit stamp collections ever since. "

Kristen started the Queen Elizabeth collection in 1999, when she was in fifth grade. Forty-eight album pages are shown on the site as a way of showing the fun and enjoyment that can be found in stamp collecting at any age, especially when the collector chooses an interesting topic or specialty.

Kristen actually showed her collection to the Queen herself in 2002. The Queen's response was "Splendid!"

Shown above are Kristen and part of her award winning exhibit.
