For the first time since its inception, stamp and trading card dealers will be amongst the coin dealers at a popular trade show on Sunday, sponsored by the Brantford Rotary Club.
Now called the Brampton Coin, Stamp and Trading Card Show, the Rotary Club has expanded the three-times a year show to attract more dealers and show-goers.
The show is held in September, December and April at Century Gardens Recreation Centre at 340 Vodden Street East, Brampton. https://www.google.com/maps/preview?q=Century+Gardens+Recreation+Centre,+340+Vodden+St.+E,+Brampton,+ON&source=newuser-ws
Rotarian Willard Burton, also co-owner of Brampton-based B&W Coins & Tokens, says the club reduced its table fees and reconfigured its floor plan to allow the show to expand into stamps and trading cards as well.
Sunday’s show will feature more than 40 tables of dealers offering to buy, sell, trade and appraise coins, medals, paper money, militaria, trade dollars, tokens, stamps and trading cards.
Admission is only $3.00 and children under 14 are free. Parking is also free and there is a kid’s coin table. The show opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 4:30 p.m.
By participating in the show, Burton says the dealers and the public are helping the children of Brampton because all profits from the show go to the Rotary Club’s children’s programs.
The Rotary Club also runs a snack bar at the show.
Canadian Stamp News will also be attending the show with specials on coin and stamp supplies, along with a special show only subscription offer.
