TO THE ded­i­cated stamp col­lec­tor, their art is much more than sim­ply just a hobby.

On Novem­ber 18, the Caloun­dra Stamp Club is bring­ing en­thu­si­asts from across Queens­land to­gether for the 39th an­nual Stamp Fair.

Caloun­dra Stamp Club public­ity of­fi­cer Peter Rule said it’s a big oc­ca­sion and im­por­tant fundraiser for their club. “We host all the stamp clubs from as far away as Nanango,” he said.

“The clubs bring their stamp books to dis­play as it’s also about en­hanc­ing their col­lec­tions.”

Mr Rule said the event is also open to the gen­eral pub­lic to en­hance their pri­vate col­lec­tions.

“We will also have five pro­fes­sional deal­ers there on the day with an ar­ray of things,” he said.

“They’ll sell ev­ery­thing from mint stamps, mag­ni­fy­ing glasses and all the things stamp col­lec­tors use.

“And in the af­ter­noon there's a spe­cial event where we’ll have an auc­tion.”

The fair will be held at the Kawana Com­mu­nity Hall, Nany­ima St, Bud­dina from 8.30am to 3.30pm on Novem­ber 18.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the club sec­re­tary on (07) 5494 7233.
