Many of us started saving stamps on the envelopes we or our parents received in the mail. Some may not look like stamps and may not even have an amount on the-but they are stamps. Sometimes one or more stamps will catch your interest and they can be torn off, soaked off paper and saved in a stock book. We can teach how to remove and save and tell you, and even provide a stock book.

One of the fastest-growing areas is called topical, collecting stamps by subjects. Topics could include, but not limited to, trains, flowers, boats, aircraft, musical instruments, presidents. The list goes on and on. Not only on stamps of the United States but on stamps of the many foreign countries.

The fun of stamp collecting comes from learning of people, place, and things you can only imagine. It also comes from meeting and making friends with a like interest. It can come from attending meetings to learn about the world of stamps and what is meant by perforations, watermarks, coils and so forth.
