    How do you, as collectors, plan to keep up with your hobby during the COVID-19 pandemic?


    I Have more time to read about stamps and organize the digital version of CSN. I have begun a table of contenent on a spread sheet.
    Weird story: I had “compulsive need” to buy stamp hinges every time that I have gone to my stamp dealer. At the beginning of the confinement I had a stack of 13 packs. Now with the store temporary closed I’m glad I did. Divination!


    Thank you for reading the digital edition—we hope you’re enjoying it! If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know.

    And yes—good call on the hinges. Stay safe out there! If you need anything else, our supply department ships! Check out our hinges here.


    The west coast of Canada [ White Rock – South Surrey] is on the Pacific Ocean and as such we have very mild weather. To date we have held 5 outdoor “car trunk”, AKA parking lot sales and meetings. We seriously observe Covid 19 safety protocols and EVERYONE must wear a mask and observe distancing. Our club [PEACE ARCH STAMP CLUB ( https://www.peacearchstampclub.com )] provides masks and sanitizers.
    We usually have 22+ cars,trucks and R/Vs and each member brings a table and chairs and sets up there own sales station. Our club has a large inventory of supplies and we sell to any one that needs an item. [hinges, 102’s, stock sheets, etc etc] Please see our website for Pictures of our Parking Lot sales. Our next one is Oct 3 and I will post more photos.
