Despite E-mail, Stamps Have A Bright Future

"Even with e-mailing and electronic billing, stamp collectors believe their hobby is still going strong," writes reporter Trevor Terfloth on Britain's Chatham Daily News website.

Trevor covered the annual Kentpex Stamp Show, hosted by the Kent County Stamp Club, was held Saturday at the Kent Belgian Dutch Canadian Club over the weekend.

Alan Charlesworth, one of the dealers at the show, told Trevor he's had some interesting experiences with buyers. He's quoted as saying that one time a lady purchased stamps to hang as artwork in a dollhouse!
