It's been a few months since the World Stamp Show in New York City; the once a decade gathering of the world's philatelic masses. We had some members visit the show and sent us their impressions. Here's a link to a dizzying Vine video of the show. My favorite was this letter from Member Christine. Her sister even made special commemorative stationery for the event. Enclosed in the letter was a card for the U.S.P.S. StampApp for collectors, which, disappointingly, seems pretty miserable from the reviews. Ten bucks for a collecting app without a free section to get people (i.e. kids) into sorting and cataloging their stamps digitally seems a misstep to me. When are they going to hire me as a consultant, right?
She also sent a rad box with pins and artist signed postcards and I'M SO UPSET I COULDN'T GO! Anyway, here's to the World Stamp Show. I'm planning on making it to the one in Boston in 2026!
