About Us

This friendly club caters for stamp collectors of all levels (from beginners to advanced collectors) within the Wagga Wagga City area and surrounding towns. The monthly meetings consist of a short business meeting (30/45 minutes) followed by a display by one of the members, supper and a sale by tender.

Two large sale by tender events (no display on these nights) are held each year and in November a five page, competitive members display is held. A monthly newsletter is mailed to members.

Saturday Stamp & Coin Market

Saturday 30 July 2022

   Eight members set up trading tables and all reported a very satisfactory day. The extended hours worked well and clients attended from around the Riverina such as Millvale, Tumut, Junee, Griffith, Albury and Berrigan. 

   One new club member was recruited which is another positive from the day.

   Several attendees had items for valuation and/or sale including sovereigns and pennies plus a wide range of stamps.

Flood ReliefE.png

 Following the recent severe flooding in northern NSW and southern Queensland, the Wagga Stamp Club initiated a flood appeal for the donation of philatelic material for distribution to collectors who were impacted – some lost their entire collections.

  Several members donated material and I was able to arrange transport to Lismore via Korine Sleeman from Cootamundra who was delivering food, clothing and white goods to Wardell which is a village south-east of Lismore. Cootamundra has apparently adopted Wardell for their relief assistance.

  The philatelic material filled four cartons and will be distributed by Mark Bailey at the Lismore end.

                                   Report by Peter Simpfendorfer.
