"Stamps In Your Closet" at Michigan Show

This weekend the West Suburban Stamp Club of Plymouth, Michigan will host its 40th annual stamp show according to an article by Julie Brown that appears on the Web site.

The show will feature 2,400 pages of exhibits, 40 dealers from the U.S. and Canada, U.S., U.N. and Nordica Post Offices, seminars and society meetings. The show will draw 600-800 people, especially from Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. The event is the only Michigan-qualified American Philatelic Society national show in the 30-show “World Series of Philately” circuit.

Ed Dubin, publicity chair, said the “Stamps in Your Closet” table is extremely popular because experienced collectors and dealers help visitors, usually non- collectors, evaluate collections and accumulations that they inherited, or have rediscovered from their own past.

According to the club's Web site, "Our team of experts provide a non-threatening atmosphere where visitors could be sure they were receiving sound advice. No appointment is necessary and there is no charge for this service."

Dublin is quoted as saying,“They get all these stamp albums and they don't know what to do with them."
