Thanks to everyone who came to the show in February and made it such a success
The Philatelic Traders’ Society is delighted to see the world of philately continue to thrive; this Spring the show had over 1900 guests queuing to get in on the opening morning, recorded over 10000 visits over the 4 days and the Royal Mail’s Stampex show exclusive of a limited run of 6000 was a sell out success.
Stampex International celebrated two leading female philatelists within the show’s prestigious Court of Honour. On display were never-before-seen philatelic compendia including one of the oldest collections of Valentine’s Day cards in the world, carefully curated by philatelist Judith Holder, and Birthe King’s collection of 20 letters between a newly married couple during their separation over the course of the 1864 war between Denmark and Prussia.
Many people think that only men love the hobby, however there are many women who are also passionate about collecting.
We look forward to seeing you at the September show.
