The 40th PENPEX Stamp Show was a great success from the number of attendees as well as many happy shoppers, the dealers were busy, silent auction sold almost $6,000 worth of philatelic material, the youth had young people working on stamps both days including 10 of them joining the Stamps R Us program, and a highly competitive exhibit competition.

There were also four lucky raffle winners: Kjell Enander, Bob Jarvis, David Revsbeck, and Robert Tu. Thank you to everyone who supported the show whether you bought raffle tickets, purchased items from our show dealers, won a lot in the silent auction, displayed your material, or just came by to socialize.

Make sure to mark your calendar for PENPEX 2014 on December 6 and 7.  We look forward to seeing you then.
