Minnesota Stamp Expo Begins Friday

The Minnesota Stamp Expo brings three days of philately to the upper Midwest beginning Friday, July 21. The show will be held at the Crystal Community Center, 4800 Douglas Drive North, Crystal, Minnesota, just northwest of Minneapolis.

The show theme is the Total Solar Eclipse, which will occur August 21 across the United States.

The Minnesota Stamp Expo is part of the annual World Series of Philately and will attract several national-level philatelic exhibits.

More than two dozen dealers will be at the show, as will the U.S. Postal Service (Friday and Saturday only). Philatelic groups on hand will include the American Topical Association, the Northern Philatelic Library, and the Scandinavian Collectors Club.

Jay Bigalke, editor of the The American Philatelist, will represent the American Philatelic Society at the show.

A Boy Scout merit badge activity and youth activities are planned.

The show is sponsored by four groups: the Twin City Philatelic Society, the Lake Minnetonka Stamp Club, Maplewood Stamp Club, and Minnesota Stamp Dealers Association.

The show opens at 10 a.m. each day and closes at 6 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday. More information can be found at the show website, www.stampsminnesota.com.

  1. My dad passed away and has large stamp collection that he collected over 50 years. Is this something I could bring that someone might be interested in buying?

      1. I would love to take a look at the collection.
