turramurra stamp club
The Turramurra Stamp Club meets on the second Monday of each month.
A highlight of each meeting includes a specialist display by a prominent philatelist or one of our members. An auction incorporating a wide variety of stamps, covers, stationery etc is held at the end of each meeting and always creates interest. This provides an avenue to add to collections as well as providing a profitable way to dispose of surplus supplies. Stamp Days, Shows, Exhibitions etc in NSW, interstate and overseas are also advised at each meeting.
Several members assist PHILAS , a non-profit body representing over 50 Clubs /Societies in NSW which organises quarterly auctions at their premises in Surrey Hills. Hence access to philatelic expertise is always available at our meetings.
With a membership of over 30, attendance at each meeting is around 10 - 15. While some members are generalists, most specialise in a wide variety of countries and time periods.
Visitors are always very welcome to attend our meetings too.
