NTSC reintroduces ‘Swap Shoppe’

At the first meeting of the North Toronto Stamp Club (NTSC) later this week, the club will reintroduce a table – dubbed “The Swap Shoppe” – for trading stamps.

Member Klaus Hintz, who has extensive experience in trading stamps in Europe, will be the convenor of the Jan. 10 meeting.

NTSC Membership Chair Bruce Philip encouraged members to organize their duplicates and extra stamps, as well as update their want lists, so they can participate in the trading activities.

“Trading is an ideal way to inexpensively fill the holes in your collection and to dispose of your duplicates by either trading with or maybe even selling to your fellow collectors,” wrote Philip. “Trading is also a way to allow every club member to be active in our club’s programmes.”

On Jan. 10, the trading table focus on letter “G” countries – such as Great Britain, Germany and Greece – but other countries are expected to be offered by other traders.

“Let’s start 2019 off with a bang,” added Philip. “The more active you get in your club, the more you will enjoy the meetings. Even a modest start to trading is better than a no-starter at all.”

Another swap meet will be held by the NTSC on Jan. 24.
