K.P.S. Stamp Show - 11/7/2015

Posted by Randy B. on November 14, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Hello All!                                                                                   

Well, last Saturday - the 7th - was the annual Kent Philatelic
 Society's fall stamp show, otherwise know as Kentpex 2015.
Not as many dealers at this year's show, but still worth going - 
at least it was for me!:)

And it did have quite a few buyers during the time I was there. 
Also, 2 of the dealers whom I buy regularly from stated that
 they had brisk sales that day. 
Being a 2-day event (Sat. & Sun.), I hope they did well on the
 second day too! I was there just for Saturday.
As far as I know, only 2 of our club's members attended; 
myself and Lou Hedger. Lou is not listed as a member here
 on our site because Lou doesn't do anything with computers
 or the internet. But he is still a very active collector and club
 member!
The show was a success for me, as I acquired 22 more US
revenues for my collection, as well as a few Match & Medicine
 and also found a cover collection of Israel covers for a friend
 that I have since been told was a good buy. 
So it was an overall success!

There was, however, a bit of a sad note;
longtime dealer Chuck Drouillard was noticeably absent at 
the show. Chuck passed away immediately after the APS 
show in Grand Rapids, MI last August. 
He had been battling health issues for many months prior 
and finally lost the fight. He was an honest dealer and a nice 
man. He will be missed by many.:(

  I spent about 4 hours at the show, looking through dealers' 
'wares' and chatting with familiar faces. 
Many of the dealers have become friends to me and know me
 on site and by name. I always seem to get good deals from 
those I purchase from regularly and it is always a pleasure to 
sit and chat with them , whether the subject is stamps or 
something totally unrelated. I guess it pays to be a regular
 visitor to the show!:)

That's all for now; we have a club meeting coming up on 
Tuesday the 17th, so I'll be posting the minutes from that 
meeting sometime next week.


Until then - 


Happy Stampin',

Randy  (VP/SEC)
