New Stamp Club in Town

Australia's Busselton-Dunborough Mail reports that there's a new stamp club in town.

Reporter Tim Carrier writes, "Formed in December last year, the club is steadily growing into one of the more unique clubs in our town."

He goes on to say, "When Judy Rice, one of the founding members of the stamp club, first joined, she was like lots of other people, she had a big stack of stamps and no knowledge of what to do with them."

"Since then she has learned many different things about stamps including how to look after her stamps, how to display her stamps, where to buy the right materials for her stamp albums and many more essential stamp collecting skills," pens Carrier.

Club President Ray Brand is quoted as saying,"The stamp club is a great place to do this. We’re not scary professional collectors, just easy going people who are still learning the basics of stamp collecting."
