Hello all. I live in Dubuque, Iowa and am wondering if there are any stamp collectors left in my area. I would love to get together with other collectors in my area to trade stamps, talk about stamps, maybe get someone started in the hobby and just general things having to do with stamps. I am a long time collector of 50+ years and have tons of duplicates to trade as well as several stamp used albums to get someone started in the hobby.
Anyone interested? Contact me and we can go from there. Thanks to all!!

Thank you and I appreciate that a lot. There is a stamp club here but from the little bit I've found out, it looks to net be active anymore?? I'd be more than happy and pleased to maybe get one going again here in the area. Would be great to get some of the younger folks interested in stamp collecting. Keep the hobby going. I have tons of stuff that I would love to put to good use getting someone started in the hobby. I teach at one of the local high schools here and it is amazing how little these young people know about geography, historical events, US History and I can keep going and going. I started collecting way back in I think 1972?? I have to say that over the years, I have learned so much from stamp collecting. To me and others like us, it has been not only a very enjoyable hobby but a never ending wealth of information to say the least.
