Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today Episode #199 - Sorry everyone with the Chicago show and Thanksgiving we were thrown a little out of whack. But we are back with a shortish episode. Today we are discussing Scott and Tom's trip to Chicagopex and conducting the drawing for the winners of October's stamp collecting month give away. Enjoy.
An EXTRA Episode - because you all have been so good.
Welcome to Episode #161. We just got back from ARIPEX and discuss (in my opinion) one of the best stamp shows in the country. While there we had the chance to speak with a few people including a Hopi Kachina Doll maker which – while not actually about stamps, I left in because he was so interesting and his work was so nice.
While listening to him you will hear a scratching sort of sound in the podcast….. That is because he was actually carving one of his Kachina Dolls while we were talking.
As always – Go on Facebook to see the covers and Kachina Dolls we are discussing.
Welcome to Episode #147. We are plugging ChicagoPex coming up on the November 17th weekend at the Itasca Westin. Google ChicagoPex for all the info. (I know - not Chicago, how depressing). (Minute Marker 5)
Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today, Episode #144. Our SESCAL Spectacular. Yes, here in Ontario California we visited the show and it was truly awesome. Thank you to the listeners who stopped by and said HI and also to all on Facebook who gave us a shout-out but couldn’t come.
We have 2 outstanding exhibiters who showed us some of their prize possessions. The first is Michael Mahler who showed us some awesome NEVADA stamp items with loads of back story and history. True relics of history (3 minute marker)
We also had Les Lampher show us some of his items including a Chester Arthur cover as well as a stranded artic expedition cover and a cover from the San Francisco fire. Again, true relics of history (13 minute marker)
We then discuss some of the table sales and how the dealers here at SESCAL sell stuff. (20 minute marker).

Welcome to episode #133. On May 22nd Linn's Stamp News (free plug - this is a great magazine) had three articles that we are weighing in on. The first is the APS taking the FIP to task (minute 5 marker). The second is an article on the forever stamp and how stamp collecting is changing the way the post office has to do its accounting. It also has some pretty strong indicators for the strength of the US Stamp Collecting market (minute 15 marker). Lastly we address a letter from David Kolls of Regency Superior Auctions and wish our best to him in his plight but take him to task for his opinions (minute 31 marker).

We also discuss indepth the Pan American Exposition of 1901 including its stamps, the inverts and how to expertise this very attractive issue. (minute marker 7). Enjoy.
