Here is a link to this weeks information on the APS STAMP CHAT series. They will be using the Zoom platform for this. April 13-17. Check it out!
Here is a link to Exploring Stamps, a marvelous exploration into the details of interesting stamp originations hosted by Graham Beck. Always entertaining.
How about a link to another popular series TED TALKS STAMPS – no, it’s not a Ted Talk, it’s a stamp enthusiast named Ted; quite entertaining.

Hello fellow collectors,
At this point the next two meetings are CANCELLED due to the pandemic. So, dig those boxes out from under the bed and get those stamps sorted and cataloged! That’s what I’ll be doing…
As of this writing, the March 26 meeting is still scheduled to take place. I will update here again if anything changes. WTH
This information brought to you by the Virtual Stamp Club blog. I always liked the design of this semipostal stamp.
I recently ran across the website for the France & Colonies Philatelic Society (I have added the site to our links page).
They have an abundance of international collecting sites on their links page, some very fascinating websites. One of my favorites is The Royal Philatelic Society London. Quite the fun rabbit hole to fall into. If you have some time, I recommend visiting the site.
Enjoy your explorations.

I have been adding new links to various parts of your Erie Stamp Club website. One of my favorite online searches is to find other club websites, which I list for you in the LINKS part of this site. Under the heading ‘Other Stamp Clubs’ you can quickly visit stamp clubs and access their newsletters and other information about their processes.
As you can see, I recently added a link to the Buffalo Stamp Club, and spent an enjoyable thirty minutes reading some of their newsletters. They also have an interesting page on their site concerning the postal history in Buffalo New York.
Do you have ideas for your ESC website?
Be sure to visit your Erie Stamp Club website often for new information; and not just about us! If you have any suggestions for your website, send me your ideas. I’d love to hear what you have to say. Thanks, WTH
UPCOMING SHOWS FOR 2020
I spent some time this morning updating the UPCOMING SHOWS here at the Erie Stamp Club website. If you enjoy traveling you will want to check some of these out. They are listed on the right side of this page.
VIDEOS FROM 2019 MILCOPEX
While compiling the dates, I ran across the MILCOPEX website. They have posted some very interesting videos on YouTube from their 2019 show, check it out and see if there are any topics you’re interested in.
Welcome to the new year, hope you’re enjoying your website. WTH
Happy new year Erie Stamp Club! You can always count on the USPS to serve up new stamp issues to keep us glued to our hobby… (see what I did there?).
I really like the new global issue coming up– what do you think of it?
Welcome to 2020, keep lickin’ & stickin’ my friends… WTH
I hope everyone is ready for the final lap into the holiday season. Stay warm and safe.

I just reviewed the online newsletter from Stampworld.com. A very nice mini-sheet of 4 stamps has been issued in Australia celebrating water sports. If you order these stamps and keep yourself under a 10,000 lux light therapy emitter, you’ll come through winter just fine. Maybe enjoy a piña colada for added effect.
