If you’re a stamp collector or want to have antique stamps appraised, you won’t want to miss the Allen Park Stamp Club’s one-day show.
The club is holding its 2022 stamp exhibit from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Sokol Cultural Center, 23600 W. Warren (east of Telegraph Road), Dearborn Heights.
Admission is free and club members say there is plenty of free parking.
The show will feature a dozen philatelic dealers and appraisers, with vast knowledge of philately and collecting.
The issue will include themed and classic stamps, as well as first day covers. You will also find postcards, coins, sports cards and supplies.
“Some stamp dealers have coins and some have baseball cards, but it’s mostly stamps,” said club member Thom Ouellette. “Information is available on shows of these types of collectibles.”
The Allen Park Stamp Club, whose president is Debbie Detloff, has 18 members. It has called Allen Park home since 1964. They currently hold their meetings at 5.30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at Nona’s Diner, 9205 Pelham Road, Allen Park.
According to Ouellette, the Sokol Cultural Center hosts five shows a year, in five different clubs. The Allen Park Stamp Club usually holds its show in August.
For those unable to attend this show, the next one in Sokol will be the Motor City Stamps & Cover Club show, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 14 and 15.
